Hiltron Introduces HMAM LEO High Speed Motorised Tracking Antenna Mount

Accompanying image shows the new Hilton HMAM LEO high speed motorised tracking antenna mount.

Backnang, Germany, august 22nd, 2022 – Hiltron Communications, a globally active satellite system integrator, manufacturer and distributor, announces HMAM LEO, a new addition to its HMAM series of motorised antenna mounts. HMAM LEO is a complete system combining the strength, precision, smoothness of operation and internal computing capabilities necessary to monitor low Earth orbit satellites.

Based on over 10 years of Hiltron experience in designing, manufacturing and integrating motorised satellite mounts, HMAM LEO is capable of accommodating parabolic antennas of up to 2.4 metres diameter. Supported on a high-stability ground pillar, it incorporates the computing resources to track satellites using the NORAD TLE (two-line element) data format which defines satellite locations based on their location and velocity. The system can lock onto the desired LEO satellite within the approximately 10 minute timespan where the target satellite is in sight.

The HMAM LEO mount can be controlled and oriented within more than 360 degrees of azimuth and 80 degrees of elevation at the required tracking speed. All elements of the antenna control unit are accommodated inside a weatherproofed outdoor housing.

HMAM LEO systems can be specified from a wide range of options. These include a feed changer allowing the antenna to be switched between up to four microwave bands. Customers can choose between standard steel mounts designed to screw directly to a base surface, or non-penetrating mounts. Control can be performed via an integrated web interface or SNMP. Other options include de-icing, extended temperature range tolerance and increased protection from salt water.

A low Earth orbit (LEO) is an orbit around Earth with a period of 128 minutes or less, making at least 11.25 orbits per day, and an eccentricity less than 0.25. Most of the artificial objects in outer space are in LEO, with an altitude never more than about one-third of the radius of Earth. The LEO region is the area of space below an altitude of 2,000 km, about one-third of Earth's radius.

HMAM LEO will be make its first exhibition appearance on the Hiltron stand (1.D50) at IBC 2022 in Amsterdam, September 9th-12th.

BRT Vietnam Commissions Expanded EditShare Storage System from Danmon Asia

BRT Vietnam Commissions Expanded EditShare Storage System from Danmon Asia

Danmon Asia announces the completion of expanded digital media storage for Ba Ria – Vung Tau Radio & Television (BRT) which broadcasts across southeastern Vietnam. Based on EditShare® technology, the newly integrated system is designed to enhance the efficiency of BRT’s workflow, increasing the station’s online storage capacity and adding automated archiving.

“We selected EditShare as our preferred storage technology some years ago,” says BRT Technical Manager Le An Thi. “It proved a good choice, expanding the creative potential of our production team. Danmon Asia partnered very effectively with us from the initial design phase and onward through implementation, system testing and staff training. The Danmon Asia team also provides fast and effective maintenance support on the rare occasion that we need it. We recently began studying the potential for automating some of the manual aspects of our production, archiving and presentation process. After researching the various products in the marketplace, we decided to expand our Editshare infrastructure into a complete solution embracing ingest, quality control, storage and editorial vetting right through to transmission. The result is very effective in accelerating our media throughput while sustaining BRT’s high content quality.”

“The expanded system we have supplied and integrated includes four EditShare EFS 300 storage nodes with a combined capacity of 640 terabytes for use in video production,” adds Danmon Asia General Director Bjarne Pedersen. “Each EFS 300 is equipped with EditShare Flow production asset management software. This gives BRTs editors fast access to file-based ingest, logging, cataloging, searching, cuts-only editing and drag-and-drop resources. We have also provided an Editshare Ark content management library incorporating LTO-8 drives which can be accessed quickly from the online servers.”

EditShare’s Flow software serves as a control layer across multiple storage pools, offering fast production tools plus highly efficient asset and metadata tracking. A single EFS 300 can support from one to eight additional storage nodes. Up to 5 Petabytes of total storage can be accommodated by adding dedicated metadata controllers and servers for Flow and Ark.

EditShare Ark allows users to backup essential media assets automatically. Unused assets can be parked in nearline disk and offline tape storage. Operators can also restore backups from nearline and offline destinations. Up to 560 LTO-8 tape slots can be supported. Ark is also compatible with third-party LTO tape libraries.

EditShare’s cloud-enabled remote editing and project management technology was recently recognised by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences with a prestigious 2021 Emmy® Award for Technology and Engineering.
