Toronto-based wireless technology management company Baylin Technologies Inc (which provides passive and active RF products and services) says that both its subsidies Advantech WirelessTechnologies Inc of Montreal, Canada and Alga Microwave of Kirkland, Quebec, Canada (acquired on 28 June) are presenting satellite solutions for broadcast applications in booth 5.C34 at the IBC 2018 event in Amsterdam, The Netherlands (14-18 September).

Showcasing their Ultra HD-ready satellite solutions, the proprietary gallium nitride (GaN)-based solid-state power amplifiers (SSPAs) and block up-converters (BUCs) from Advantech and Alga deliver solutions for Digital Satellite News Gathering (DSNG) applications.

In an Ultra HD broadcasting environment, additional power is required in order to transmit higher modulation at a lower cost. The new generation of GaN-based SSPAs from Advantech are designed for very high-order modulation transmission of up to 256 APSK in a single compact unit, making ultra HD 4K/8K broadcast over satellite more cost effective.

The GaN-based SSPAs are teleport-grade, designed for 4K/8K Ultra HD transmission and provide elevated linearity while supporting higher-modulation transmissions. The enhanced linearity comes with no increase in size, weight or energy consumption, maximizing efficiency and reducing operational costs.
