The 2016 National Association of Broadcast (NAB) show held April 18-21 in Las Vegas, NV did not disappoint. The Satellite Industry Forum held a one day conference as part of this show. Focus and discussion was around the role that satellite plays in broadcasting and the delivery of content from virtually anywhere on the planet.

During the show, Norsat highlighted its comprehensive and growing line of BUCs and LNBs for the satellite newsgathering market. With the recent launch of our ATOM 25W KA BUC which started shipping in May, and the 250W KU ATOM BUC, Norsat saw huge interest in these products, as well as our 100W ATOM BUC. Ka-band continues to gain momentum with increased interest in our specialty products including the ATOM 25W and 50W, due to best SWaP (Size, Weight, Power) in the industry. SNG customers were very pleased with the SwaP of the new 250W ATOM BUC (equivalent to a 400W TWTA). Read our blog post here.

Another CommunicAsia has wrapped up and this year’s show proved to be another success on our tradeshow ticket. At CommunicAsia2016, Asia’s largest integrated ICT event, the latest technologies in 3D Printing, IoT, M2M, Mobile Apps, OTT and more, were featured. An integral part of CommunicAsia is SatComm2016, the arena for satellite companies to present solutions that address the pressing satellite-based issues.

As in previous years, Norsat participated in the USA pavilion. Showcasing our newest ultra-portable, back packable satellite terminal, the Journey Manpack, our small size, weight and power ATOM BUC line, several of our O3b BUCs product portfolio, as well as some of our RF antenna and conditioning products, the booth was a buzz with activity. Norsat also saw interest in our low cost 5000 Low Noise Block Downconverter PLL series which offer high performance for great value.

Some of the trends we noticed included the proliferation of smaller size dish systems, ranging from 60 to 80cm, and discussions around Low power Ku and C-band BUCs. With new satellites launching in Indonesia soon, we are seeing interest from applications such as the banking industry.

Over the course of the show, it was great to meet and catch up with some of our partners in the region, as well as meet some new prospects and resellers during the four day event. Thank you to everyone who stopped by!

With over 1870 exhibitors and 103,000+ attendees, the 2016 National Association of Broadcast (NAB) show, the world’s largest electronic media event covering the creation, management and delivery of content across all platforms, did not disappoint. The show was filled with energy and excitement with all of the new technologies sweeping the broadcast industry including those technologies for the delivery of broadcast content.

The biggest talk of NAB 2016 was the future of virtual reality filmmaking. The first major announcement came as YouTube introduced live streaming in 360-degrees. Drones and their future in filmmaking was also a big buzz at the show.

New to the NAB show this year, the Satellite Industry Forum held a one-day conference that focused on the role that the satellite industry plays in broadcasting and the delivery of high quality video content from virtually anywhere to anywhere on the planet whether it is on land, sea or in the air.

Coming off the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) official start of the broadcast spectrum auction, where they will be repacking many hundreds – if not more than a thousand – broadcasters to new frequencies in the television band, we are still unclear as to how this will truly affect  satellite newsgathering.

One such panel discussion examined the role that the satellite industry plays in the development and broadcast of Ultra-HD services.  Large players such as SES, Eutelsat, Intelsat and AT&T Entertainment Group reviewed the challenges facing the satellite industry in the new age of high definition content delivery.

IMG_3937At NAB, Norsat highlighted its comprehensive and growing line of BUCs and LNBs for the SNG market. With the recent launch of our ATOM 25W KA BUC, and the 250W KU ATOM BUC, Norsat saw huge interest in these products, as well as our 100W ATOM BUC. Ka-band continues to gain momentum with increased interest in our specialty products including the ATOM 25W and 50W, due to best SWaP (Size, Weight, Power) in the industry. SNG customers were very pleased with the SwaP of the new 250W ATOM BUC (equivalent to a 400W TWTA). Our low cost PLLs were also well received as customers  move away from traditional DRO to the Norsat 5000 and 5200 series. C-band continues to stay strong with lots of interest, especially from SNG customers and Latin America customers.

Norsat was able to connect with multiple partners, customers and prospects throughout the four day event and feels that NAB continues to be a key show and market area for the company.

The 1000 series LNB receives a signal from a satellite in the sky, converts it to a lower frequency, and then sends the signals to a modem inside the truck, all part of the two way communications between the sporting event and your television.Yankees_Norsat_LNB

For years Norsat has been providing LNBs, amplifiers, and satellite terminals for satellite newsgathering (SNG) applications worldwide. When chatting with the ground team from the news truck, the tech said that they have had the Norsat LNB for over ten years.  This is just another testament to the quality of the Norsat product line.

Sinclair Technologies Engages in Quality Conversations at IWCE2016 http://www.norsat.com/blog/sinclair-iwce2016/ http://www.norsat.com/blog/sinclair-iwce2016/#comments Wed, 30 Mar 2016 21:01:40 +0000 http://www.norsat.com/?p=10892 Continue reading ]]> IWCEThe Sales and Marketing team from Sinclair Technologies, Norsat’s RF division, recently returned from the International Wireless Communications Expo held from March 21 – 25th at the Las Vegas Convention Center. This year’s show saw thousands of industry professionals come together to discuss the latest trends and topics in communications technology. With over 370 exhibitors in attendance, the general feeling was that this year’s event saw probably about 25% more traffic than the 2015 show.  Assisting in this uptake was the fact that the 2016 show was co-located with several other events including the Network infrastructure Forum, ETA’s Education Forum, Dynamic Spectrum Sharing Summit, as well as a Motorola partner event.

Hot topics at the 2016 show included FirstNet (First Responder Network Authority). FirstNet is to establish, operate, and maintain an interoperable public safety broadband network in the US. Congress allotted $7 billion and 20 MHz of valuable radio spectrum to build this network. “FirstNet’s request for proposal (RFP) should generate “fierce competition” for the right to build and maintain a nationwide public-safety broadband network,” stated one panelist.  Integrated with this discussion were sessions on how to deploy LTE within public safety and the integration of service, device and the network. LMR has been around for a long time, but LTE is fairly new to the industry. Our feeling is that LTE and LMR will co-exist for many years. Other areas of discussion included: various mission critical applications for public safety and the network interoperability among public safety agencies.

And there was no lack of energy or excitement at the Sinclair booth! Showcasing our new look for 2016, the booth was abuzz with customers, distributors and new prospects.

20160323_121100_resized20160324_092714_resized

 

In our centerpiece product tower, Sinclair was showcasing some of our newest technologies including the SC251D 2.3dBd dual collinear omni antenna featuring low passive intermod performance with 35dB minimum isolation guaranteed. Fabricated using durable components, this series of antennas is designed and fabricated for ease of installation and to meet the most stringent wind and ice loading requirements. Due to its wide band, high average power and PIP (Peak Instantaneous Power) power handling capability, this antenna is ideally suited for VHF trunking applications or multi-channel operations. The reliability and durability of this antenna makes it suitable for mission critical applications such as public safety and law enforcement.

20160323_094022_resizedBoth at the our booth and IWCE’s Product Showcase, Sinclair highlighted the SM700, broadband multifunctional transport antenna which is specifically designed to address the need for a compact, low profile, broadband antenna that is truly universal. When used with a cross-band coupler, a single antenna can serve multiple discrete RF systems operating in the 694-6000MHz range. Designed to withstand harsh environments and constant vibration without compromising performance, the rugged SM700 series antennas are ideal for vehicular rooftop mounting. The SM700 offers easy installation with just one hole mount and greater protection against water ingression. The SM700 is ideal for public safety and transportation applications and we also engaged in multiple conversations about in-building uses.

The IWCE show provided an excellent opportunity for our team to connect with prospects, customers and partners who we haven’t seen in a while. The overwhelming sentiment from our customers is that they are happy with the quality and reliability of Sinclair products and the knowledge of our sales team – they like doing business with a well-established company. With prospects that stopped by the booth, we saw increased discussions on Sinclair’s systems design and customization capabilities.

Overall, the show was a huge success for the team and we will be busy following up with all of the leads we collected.

Thank you to everyone who attended and dropped by the Norsat booth in Za’abeel Hall at the 22nd annual CABSAT show held March 8-10 at the Dubai World Trade Center.

CABSAT is the largest show for the satellite and broadcast industry for the Middle East, Africa and Asia, and has a great reputation for driving the transformative markets in these regions.

CABSAT provides a tailored experience for industry experts to engage, strategize and debate future market trends, and source the latest broadcast and satellite technologies.
Here are a few highlights of the show:

  • Norsat showcased one of our high performance portable satellite terminals, the Ranger 60, a one case solution for military customers requiring a small form factor.
