HMAM-PM Polar Mount Motorised
RXO Satellite Antenna
H

iltron
Communications
has
announced a new addition to its
HMAM family of motorised antenna
pedestals.
The HMAM-PM is a polar mount system
which comes as a complete package
with a 1.8 or 2.4 metre diameter offset
satellite dish antenna. Designed as a
cost optimised and quickly installable
solution for professional receiveonly downlinks, it is intended for use
in satellite monitoring, programme
acquisition,
SNG
downlinks
or
automated backup at cable headends
and teleports.
"Satellite antenna mounts in the
HMAM series have already proved
their reliability, flexibility and ease
of use at hundreds of stations around
the world," said Hiltron Managing
Director Antonio Monteverde. "The
HMAM-PM continues this tradition of
robust construction and high-precision
performance. Its design and the use
of a 17-bit optical absolute encoder

provide highly reliable and very
accurate positioning far beyond
the stability of commercial grade
actuator devices.
"Once a satellite orbit position
is known, precise access
parameters can be calculated
at the press of a single button.
With its frequency controlled
induction motor and drive
system, the HMAM-PM acquires
any position within a 90 degree
orbit arc in less than 30 seconds.
The very high rigidity of the
construction ensures essentially
zero backlash and a relative Hiltron HMAM-PM
positioning accuracy of better pole-mounted motorised
satellite antenna
than 0.04 degrees."
The HMAM-PM has all the remote Hiltron's established and proven HCS
control capabilities of larger mounts controller which has four free module
in the HMAM series. Included with the slots providing room for options
HMAM-PM is an integrated modular like polarisation drive, LNB supply
Hiltron Antenna Control Unit (HACU) and monitoring or switch control.
with an integral web interface. The All the information required to set
HACU is based on the architecture of and maintain antenna positions is

displayed on the control GUI, including
current and target positions plus a
database of potentially accessible
satellites. An SNMP interface is
available for integrating the polar
mount antenna into an existing
monitoring and control system.
Two versions of the HMAM-PM are
being introduced: one basic and
one with a fully integrated de-ice
system for the reflector and feed
arm. The Hiltron DCU antenna
heating module integrates with
the HACU to provides userconfigurable current monitoring
and alarms, ambient temperature
and snow sensor. Operators can
choose between manual and fully
automatic operation mode.
The entire system is built to
withstand standard atmospheric
pollutants and to operate
from zero to 95% humidity over a
temperature range of 35°C (optionally
55°C) down to -25°C. The HMAMPM can be built, if so required, to
withstand pollutants such as salt
encountered in coastal and industrial
areas.

Globecast Partners Eutelsat For HOTBIRD

G

lobecast has expanded its
partnership
with
Eutelsat
Communications to create a new
HOTBIRD platform in order to satisfy
the growing move from SD to HD in the
market.
Samuel Lemercier, Strategic Projects
Director, Globecast, said: "We've
seen increasing demand for capacity
across Europe from west to east as the
migration to HD on HOTBIRD continues
to grow. TRT Arabi and Belarus 24
partnering with us for HD distribution
earlier this year are prime examples.
In order to meet this increasing
demand, we have launched this new
platform with Eutelsat, significantly
increasing our DVBS2 capacity suitable for HD and UHD for free-to-air
DTH or distribution to affiliates - across
Europe, the Middle East and North
Africa."
In addition to expanded HOTBIRD
capacity, the platform also includes
ground segment services with
connectivity to Globecast's fibre
network, as well as to its media
management capabilities.
German
international
public

broadcaster Deutsche Welle (DW) is
the first customer to take advantage,
launching its flagship English language
HD TV channel via this new Globecast
service.
This includes end-to-end channel
contribution from DW's facilities
in Berlin to Globecast in Paris and
uplinking from there.
Globecast has worked with DW for
many years, distributing their channels
in both Asia and the Middle East.
Hubert Czaja, Head of Distribution

Systems, Deutsche Welle, said: "We
have worked with Globecast for
quite some time and trust both their
business and technical expertise and
the quality of service they provide. We
moved to HD across Asia several years
ago and the time is now right to make
the move in Europe to increase image
quality for our viewers. We're very
pleased to extend our relationship with
both Eutelsat and Globecast."
Aymeric Genty, Regional VicePresident for France and Overseas,

Benelux, the United Kingdom, the
Nordics and Israel for Eutelsat, said:
"Our partnership with Globecast is
very important as HOTBIRD continues
to experience growth in the HD
market, notably for free-to-air and
internationally renowned channels
benefiting from this neighbourhood's
unrivalled reach in Europe, the Middle
East and North Africa. This new
platform provides cost-effective HD
- and UHD - distribution as channels
look to increase viewer engagement
and satisfy the ever-growing demand
for HD."
Lemercier added: "Our relationship
with Eutelsat is central to our
channel distribution business and the
operational model has long since been
proven to provide the quality of service
demanded by our customers. Using
DVB-S2 allows us to be more efficient
in the management of transponder
capacity and therefore more costeffective. This means we can efficiently
support the ongoing migration to HD
and to offer more bandwidth as and
when required."
Globecast move meets SD to HD demand
