EXPLORER 3075 series delivers unmatched performance for media users on Ka-band links
BVE 2016, ExCeL London - Cobham SATCOM is
showing its new series of Portable Manual Deploy Fly-Away VSAT
antennas on service provider partner Europsat's stand (D:31) at the
BVE 2016 exhibition in London this week. The EXPLORER 3075 series
comes in two variants; a KA-SAT version for EutelSat NewsSpotter
and the latest model configured specifically for operation on the
new Inmarsat Global Xpress (GX) Ka-band network.
EXPLORER 3075 antennas are built from a firm carbon fibre
composite, which ensures high performance, while being extremely
portable. All antennas in the series use the same 0.75m 4-piece
reflector and materials, delivering a precise blend of lightweight
design with strength and durability, ideally suited to the mobile
nature of outside newsgathering and broadcasting.
While providing unmatched radio performance and service
reliability on Inmarsat's global and mobile GX satellite service,
the new EXPLORER 3075GX variant also offers the flexibility to
switch to the established KA-SAT based NewsSpotter service when
using an optional 'field conversion kit'. The possibility for easy
switching from Inmarsat GX to NewsSpotter provides flexibility for
newsgathering teams to ensure they can access the best available
Switching using the conversion kit is straightforward; the user
simply changes the antenna feed chain using a 'bicycle style' quick
release mechanism, meaning no tools or expertise are required.
Within minutes, EXPLORER 3075GX can be transmitting on the
alternative satellite, ensuring availability of a high bandwidth
link to the studio and the Internet.
EXPLORER 3075GX delivers reliable, high quality live
streaming/broadcasting in addition to remote videoconferencing and
Internet cloud services including voice, radio, data and fax. The
terminal has an embedded WLAN Access Point and four LAN interfaces,
allowing for multiple wireless and wired connections.
"Like Eutelsat NewsSpotter, the Global Xpress satellite network
will become a key resource for outside broadcasting and with
EXPLORER 3075GX we have developed a sophisticated antenna system
that ensures users can make the most of the high bandwidth
Inmarsat's new service offers," explains Henrik Noerrelykke, Vice
President, Land Mobile Business Development, Cobham SATCOM.
"Because EXPLORER 3075GX shares the same platform as the
EXPLORER 3075 with a ViaSat eTRIA configured for the KA-SAT
NewsSpotter service, we can offer users a new kind of flexibility
that allows them to choose the best available service whilst on
location, ensuring their ability to broadcast regardless of
environment or service status," adds Noerrelykke.
The EXPLORER 3075GX weighs approx. 22 kg and is transported in
two rugged hard cases. Each case is airline checkable and is
easy to carry. The EXPLORER 3075 for KA-SAT weighs approx. 11kg and
comes in a single airline checkable rugged hard case.
