Crystal solutions will also be demonstrating its Spectrum Monitoring and Recording solution (SMR) at SET Expo. Crystal’s SMR enables RF spectrum owners and users to monitor their entire spectrum on a 24/7/365 basis with just a few, or one spectrum analyzer.  SMR can record any anomalies and export the recordings to AVI files for easy sharing and analysis.  Crystal Solutions’ SMR is easy-to-use and flexible, enabling users to quickly and efficiently identify instances of satellite interference to develop mitigation plans.

 “We are pleased to be demonstrating our solutions on the Phase booth at SET Expo,” commented Roger Franklin, President and CEO, Crystal Solutions. “As consumers are becoming accustomed to instant access to the content they want on any device, the complexity for video distributors and uplinkers has increased significantly.
