Simulsat: The Multibeam Advantage
ATCi's Simulsat continues to dominate the multibeam market. Simulsat has the capacity to receive signals from 35 satellites at the same time. Available in 3 size and performance variations, Simulsat takes up less space than two parabolic antennas. In addition, as new satellites launch, new programming options appear, or existing satellites are moved, a simple change of feed location is all it takes.For more information: Click here. 
Trilithic's 860 DSPi Only Gets Better
The 860 DSPi's remarkable evolution includes extremely attractive new features, such as high speed throughput (up to 40 Mbps); 16/64 QAMsource for upstream analysis; unsolicited grant service implementation for VoIP RTP testing; in-service CSO/CTB testing with a 3rd party line blanker; 8VSB signal analysis; and VITS testing. These features merely complement an unprecedented range of test functions in an adaptable cable application specific field analyzer, including full system sweep to 1 GHz, return alignment, and ingress analysis capabilities.

The NEW Digital Quality Index 
The New Digital Quality Index, only available from JDSU, catches digital errors better and faster than other traditional digital measurements, allowing installers to go a step further and detect impairments below the threshold at which digital video is corrupted. DQI is a real-time measurement and often catches impairments that are masked by the correction capability of QAM receiver components or the burst protection capability of deep interleaving. DQI is software enabled and is currently available on any DSAM with DOCSIS® 2.0 hardware and shipped with firmware v3.2 or greater.
