Key Products and Technology Demos

NEW AR-61 Demodulator
WORK Microwave is expanding its A-Series IP modem, demodulator, and modulator family at IBC2017 with the introduction of the all-new AR-61 demodulator for transport stream applications.

The AR-61 provides the best DVB-S2X performance on the market for high-quality video transmission with minimal satellite bandwidth occupation. It is ideal for professional video contribution and distribution use cases. Offering compliance with DVB-S2X, DVB-S2, and DVB-S, the platform is entirely future-proof, enabling seamless migration to next-gen infrastructures and evolution to advanced functionalities for operators relying on legacy standards. Upgrades are made easy via software licensing.

For operators looking to transition to all-IP, WORK Microwave also offers the AX-60 IP modem, AR-60 IP demodulator, and AT-60 IP modulator high-performance platforms for IP trunking and network infrastructure applications.

NEW Integration Between AT-60 IP/AT-80 Wideband Modulator and Encapsulator
Operators now have the option to integrate WORK Microwave's AT-60 IP modulator and AT-80 wideband modulator with an encapsulator and IP routing system for large-scale VSAT systems. This integrated solution scales to every type of satellite network, from small networks with five remotes, up to the largest networks encompassing tens of thousands of remotes. Designed with flexibility in mind, WORK Microwave's solution is based on a pay-as-you-grow business model, can scale up or down to support any operator's requirements, and is completely customizable in terms of adapting to existing infrastructures. Embedded Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) enables each remote to operate at its most efficient coding and modulation scheme.

Compact Satellite Up- and Downconverter Enhanced With C- and X-Band Support
Based on customer feedback, WORK Microwave has added C- and X-Band support to its integrated, compact, and cost-effective frequency converter. Ideal for satellite operators, integrators, and teleports working in classical bands, WORK Microwave's compact converter is operational in C-, X-, and IF frequency bands, allowing users to support multiple simultaneous channels in one unit to save significant rack space and costs. WORK Microwave also offers a traditional modular converter series suited for higher frequency applications, including Ku-, Ka-, Q-, and V-bands.
