Hiltron and ATG install satellite downlink system at broadcast regulatory organisation


Working in partnership with ATG Middle East, Hiltron has completed a satellite
downlink system feeding a multi-channel compliance suite for a broadcast
regulatory organisation based in the Middle East. The installed infrastructure
includes three wall-mounted 1.8 metre dish antennas plus L band signal distribution
and modular decoder/receivers. Incoming data from the satellite antennas is
converted into discrete programme channels which are then routed to Linux-based
IT-style servers.

Servers, archiving control software and ancillary digital video infrastructure were
integrated, configured and commissioned by ATG Broadcast Middle East.

“The newly installed system can capture up to 50 simultaneous channels every hour
of the day, every day of the year,” comments ATG Middle East managing director
Fares Lubbadeh. “Recording, cataloguing and purging are performed fully

Hiltron project manager Detlef Leitzbach, together with ATG Middle East systems
support engineer Raed Gotta, supervised training for operators at the regulator’s
headquarters prior to the system going live. “This is the latest in a number of
Middle East projects we have completed successfully either directly for Hiltron
customers or in partnership with other systems integrators,” adds Hiltron managing
director, Jan Molter.
