Outside broadcast and satellite uplink specialists SIS LIVE will reveal the latest addition to their innovative product range at CABSAT.
Weighing in at just 12kgs, ManPak is an integrated and compact VSAT terminal that provides a high bandwidth connection capable of high speed data and HD SNG transmissions. Extremely rugged, portable and fully integrated, ManPak is the only terminal of its type without any loose parts.
The unit features a high performance 60cm parabolic antenna, and can be used in X, Ku and Ka bands.
David Meynell, managing director, SIS LIVE says: The ManPak unit is the latest addition to our 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. ManPaks 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 or 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 is exceptionally easy to use, has a high gain, is multi-band, can acquire and be used on any satellite using SIS LIVEs award-winning GUI, and can be out of its bag and operating live in less than three minutes.
