Backnang, Germany, 7 August 2013: Hiltron will demonstrate the latest additions to its range of satellite communication products on stand B89 in Hall 4 at the IBC exhibition in the Amsterdam RAI Centre, 13-17 September 2013.
Hiltron's new MAF 1.4 metre motorised flyaway system incorporates fully automatic satellite acquisition. Based on the unique Hiltron HSACU SNG antenna controller, it allows a satellite to be found from any location at any time in less than 2 minutes. The MAF incorporates a high-precision antenna mount which is guided by a carrier identification algorithm. Antenna mount and controller are closely integrated.
"The MAF system provides a level of quality and excellence not seen before in the satellite newsgathering market at such an affordable price," states Hiltron's Managing Director, Michael Schiestl. "The antenna can be accommodated in five IATA-compliant cases comprising three for the antenna plus one each for the control electronics and high power amplifier. Our award-winning HMCS SNG management software allows fast and easy setup of the uplink without need for technical knowledge."
Hiltron representatives at IBC will include Dr Michael Schiestl (Managing Director), Reinhold Wagner (Sales Director) and Stephan Liscutin (System Engineer).
