Advantech & Alga to Exhibit Satellite Solutions for Broadcast Applications at IBC 2018

Baylin Technologies has announced that both Advantech Wireless Technologies and Alga Microwave will present satellite solutions for broadcast applications in Amsterdam at IBC 2018, September 14-18.

Advantech and Alga will be showcasing their Ultra HD ready satellite solutions. Their proprietary new generation of Gallium Nitride (GaN) based Solid State Power Amplifiers (SSPAs) and Block-Up Converters (BUCs) deliver state-of-the-art solutions for Digital Satellite News Gathering (DSNG) applications.

In an ultra HD broadcasting environment, additional power is required in order to transmit higher modulation at a lower cost. The new generation of GaN based SSPAs from Advantech are designed for very high order modulation transmission of up to 256 APSK in a single compact unit which makes ultra HD 4K/8K broadcast over satellite more cost effective.

The new generation of GaN based SSPAs are teleport grade designed for 4K/8K ultra HD transmission and provide elevated linearity while supporting higher modulation transmissions. The enhanced linearity comes with no increase in size, weight or energy consumption thereby maximizing efficiency and reducing operational costs.
