Newtec in the press Tuesday 26 June 2018

As uncertainty continues to mark the satellite industry, Newtec is showcasing a number of innovative solutions at CommunicAsia 2018 booth 1P2-01 to help boost efficiency, performance and business potential for broadcasters.

Products on display include new features from the MCX7000 Multi-Carrier Satellite Gateway which is used for efficient distribution and contribution broadcast applications.

The platform functions as a quadruple modulator or modem with dual demodulators, ideal where density and power consumption is at stake, while the optional Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption of the baseband frames gives full protection for closed networks.

A range of broadband solutions are also on show, with the new Satellite Network Calculator being demoed, giving customers the power to analyse performance and evaluate potential gains to be made by their satellite network in new markets.

Optimum efficiency and performance is also top of the agenda. The Newtec Dialog® Mobility Manager addresses this area for the mobility market, where cruise ships and super yachts are pushing the limits of traditional satellite platforms.

The Mobility Manager overcomes the limitations of previous systems and brings The MCX7000 features remote in-band management further gains through capacity sharing which is enabled by Newtec’s Mx-DMA® technology.

Newtec’s full DVB-S2X modem portfolio is also available, including the Newtec MDM2510 IP Satellite Modem. The modem is a two-way, easy-to-install, high throughput satellite modem that supports a wide range of services including Internet/Intranet access, Voice-over-IP (VoIP), backhauling, mobility, contribution and multicasting.

Company experts are also partaking in sessions throughout the event. Newtec’s Market Director for Broadcast, Hans Massart, is exploring the requirements of newsgathering teams and how broadcasters can effectively meet them in the session ‘All-IP Newsgathering: Boosting SNG’. The presentation takes place at the IABM Theatre today, between 2:45pm and 3pm SGT.

The rapidly evolving OTT market will also be addressed, as satellite emerges as a solution to meet the demand broadcasters are facing for the sharing of real-time events with the best image quality, low delay and buffering to a global audience over the Internet, no matter where the event is taking place.

Satellite’s key role here is matched by its relevance for another quickly developing technology - 5G. This view will be expanded on by Semir Hassanaly, Market Director, Cellular Backhaul and Trunking, at Newtec, who is presenting ‘How Satellite will Play a Vital Role in the Successful Roll-out of 5G’ in the NetworkComms Track of the ConnecTech Asia Summit conference today from 3:30pm to 4pm SGT.

Newtec is exhibiting at booth 1P2-01 at CommunicAsia and at stand 4U3-01 at BroadcastAsia.
