Colem...@ IBC2010 With...

[SatNews] Colem will be showcasing various developments in its management systems to reduce interference at this year’s IBC. Colem will be introducing a number of features aimed at reducing operational errors, and therefore interference, including automated Carrier ID, the ability to self-monitor and regulate, and the detection of dual illumination.

Automated Carrier ID is a standard feature of Colem’s latest range of SNG and FlyAway management systems, ensuring that the unique ID, including current position, is registered automatically for all transmissions made. The ability to self-monitor and regulate means that transmission scheduling errors get picked up immediately, thus eliminating dual or incorrect transmission timing, and therefore ensuring zero interference. Dual illumination is a common cause of interference and Colem’s latest software can not only detect it, but also take action to avoid it, whilst at the same time alerting operations personnel.

“We are leading the way in reducing transmission interference and I see reducing operational errors as a vital part of that,” commented Martin Coleman, Director, Colem. “By automating the transmission equipment, errors can be drastically reduced, if not eradicated. Less mistakes leads to efficient operation and reduced interference. Add to this proper scheduling and interactive planning of transmission services are simplified and conflicts avoided.” The company is also actively involved with the Satellite Users Interference Reduction Group (SUIRG) and its Director, Martin Coleman, was recently named Chairman of the SUIRG Video Carrier ID Committee. Colem will be exhibiting at IBC on stand 6.C28e.
