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.

Spring is trade show season and it was an eventful time for the Norsat Sales and Marketing teams with seven shows between March 10 and the beginning of June.

Just back from the ever popular CommunicAsia show in Singapore, the show was a smashing success, and gave Norsat’s Asia Sales team the opportunity to meet some new faces and catch up with customers and partners. This trade show also gave Norsat the chance to show off our newest products and provided us with some great insight into what’s around the corner for our industry in the APAC region. Next up on the trade show stop is APCO, August 16-19 in Washington DC for our Sinclair Division.

Here is a synopsis of what the article is about:

The satellite industry is full of people, myself included, who do not have backgrounds in Engineering. For those of us who fall into this camp the specifications for radio-frequency (RF) devices can be mysterious and intimidating—arcane symbols and abbreviations we do not understand and numbers whose significance eludes us.
