IMT Vislink To Showcase Advent MSAT-120 Tri-Band Satellite at AfricaCom 2018

xG Technology announces that its IMT Vislink business is co-exhibiting with SpacePath at AfricaCom (Hall 4, Stand F21). IMT Vislink is displaying its Advent MSAT-120 satellite video and data terminal and ViewBack low latency dual channel diversity receiver-decoder, while SpacePath is exhibiting a range of high-power (HPAs) and low-power solid state power amplifiers (SSPA/SSPBs).

“AfricaCom brings together around 14,000 attendees that are interested in connectivity infrastructure, disruptive technologies, digital services, and ICT strategy, which makes it a great show for us to highlight our satellite products for local industry professionals,” says David Robins, Global Sales Director for IMT Vislink. “Vislink has a longstanding reputation as a global provider of satellite communications technologies and with the recent updates to the Advent line, continues to provide versatile, compact, and cost-effective solutions for this market. By co-exhibiting with SpacePath, we will also have the opportunity to showcase our joint product offering within our Advent MSAT-120 satellite terminal.”

The Advent MSAT-120 is a highly portable, lightweight, tri-band satellite terminal that can be set up anywhere to provide secure and non-secure data and video transmission in as little as five minutes. It supports X-, Ku-, and Ka-band configurations ensuring worldwide coverage is available at all times. Available with a 65, 90, or 120cm reflector, the system is designed for rapid deployment in hostile environments and can be used with mains power or battery operation.

Incorporated into the Advent MSAT-120 terminal, SpacePath’s 60W 13.75-14.50GHz SSPA will be demonstrated at the show. Also, SpacePath will be launching a new outdoor 12W 13.75-14.50GHz Fanless SSPB. Having no fans in the construction of the product, the new fanless SSPB increases the long-term reliability of the unit and minimizes any need for regular maintenance. SpacePath’s range of high-power and low-power solid state power amplifiers, which include uplink bands like C, Ku, DBS, and Ka will be on display as well.

“This event provides us with a unique opportunity to showcase our new satellite amplifier products and sub-systems to the region,” says Colin Bolton, Director at SpacePath Communications. “Our collaboration with IMT Vislink leverages the latest technology from both organizations.”

The Vislink ViewBack is a lightweight, low-power, low-latency, dual-channel diversity receiver-decoder, intended primarily to provide reception of return studio video transmission back to the camera operator. Functioning in the 2GHz-licensed band, the receiver supports Vislink’s proprietary robust LMS-T demodulation in addition to low-latency H.264 decoding. Outputs include HDMI and HDSDI, the latter being switchable, in wireless camera applications, between the local camera video and the return received video.
