SIS LIVE Reveal "MANPAK" at Cabsat 2012
David Meynell, managing director, SIS LIVE says: “The ManPak unit is the latest addition to our award-winning product range and incorporates our immense acquired knowledge and expertise in the development of mobile VSAT technology. This terminal packs a huge range of features into a truly portable unit, enhancing the possibilities for use in a wide range of rapid deployment field applications. I believe the ManPak will radically change the way data is transmitted for multiple markets.”
ManPak is very easy to use, offering assisted acquisition via its award-winning software and GUI. ManPak’s Cartridge Modem system allows for complete flexibility supporting multi-formats including iDirect. The simple design allows for rapid deployment, making it ideal for fast responding newscasters, disaster recovery, emergency services, military and special operations.
This unit can be comfortably carried in a rucksack / bag across rough terrain and checked in as airline baggage, being fully IATA compliant and exceptionally light. It can be powered by AC adapter or 24 VDC with ‘hot-swappable’ MIL batteries, is weatherproof to IP65, and MIL STD 810F compliant, enabling transmissions to take place in difficult environmental and hazardous conditions.
ManPak will be demonstrated at CABSAT in Dubai and launched at NAB in April. Also on display at CABSAT will be uPak® 60, a fully automated lightweight, flat plate VSAT terminal, Tr-uPod®, a compact tripod satellite uplink system, uPod®, an automated drive/fly system and RouteCase®, the powerful, compact and affordable 4 channel HD/SDI production unit. These products have been developed and built in-house by the SIS LIVE design team based on specific requirements identified and feedback gained in the field.
SIS LIVE will also be promoting its numerous service offerings, which include wireless camera solutions, microwave links, custom built radio frequency systems, systems integration services and special cameras. SIS LIVE is highly experienced in providing broadcast integration solutions to their clients, and combining products and services from their wide-ranging business, to deliver end-to-end and cost efficient results.
