Global Invacom releases satellite TV MDU distribution chipset

Global Invacom, a leading innovator and manufacturer of technology to the global satellite industry, has launched a new chip-set that dramatically opens up the market for cost effective products, useable world-wide, for the distribution of multiple satellite TV services over fibre in residential MDUs, hotels and the enterprise.

For the first time the Romeo & Juliet chip-set enables OEMs to develop their own range of FibreIRS™ compatible products for any satellite TV service frequency plan in the world with a single, programmable design.

Global Invacom developed the FibreIRS™ architecture and products to allow cost effective satellite TV service distribution throughout MDUs and hotels. Resilient, lightweight optical fibre cable backbones are used rather than traditional expensive coaxial cable that is highly susceptible to interference and picture degradation and requires signal amplifiers throughout the building.

“The Romeo & Juliet chip-set enables single programmable FibreIRS™ compatible satellite TV service distribution products to be software configurable for any of the many satellite TV frequency plans used in the world,” said Malcolm Burrell, Technical Director.

“Opening up the global FibreIRS™ market to all OEMs is a great opportunity for the satellite TV industry because single programmable global products radically reduce manufacturing proliferation driving cost reductions and increased ROI,” said Ian Walsh, VP Business Development.

World Wars – Il mondo in guerra
Da giovedì 3, ore 21.00
Gli anni che hanno cambiato la storia, le guerre mondiali vissute con gli occhi degli uomini che hanno avuto in mano il destino del mondo: la Prima Guerra Mondiale ha cambiato loro, nella Seconda Guerra Mondiale loro hanno cambiato il mondo. 1914-1945: trent’anni che hanno segnato la nostra storia. Due conflitti mondiali, l’avvento dei regimi totalitari, la crisi e la rinascita della democrazia in Europa. Al centro di questi avvenimenti le personalità, politiche e militari, che hanno condizionato la vita di milioni di persone. In occasione del centenario dello scoppio della Prima Guerra Mondiale, History rivive questo periodo drammatico, con la serie evento World Wars – Il mondo in guerra.

WWI: La prima guerra moderna
Lunedì 28 e martedì 29, ore 21.00
I primi carri armati. I primi aerei. Le prime armi chimiche. La Grande Guerra è stata la prima guerra moderna, rivoluzionaria nella tecnologia ma anche orribile nelle conseguenze, con oltre 16 milioni di morti e 20 milioni di feriti. Questa miniserie in quattro episodi ricostruisce le principali innovazioni tecnologiche protagoniste del primo conflitto mondiale: carri armati che scuotevano i campi di battaglia, sottomarini che agitavano i mari e aerei che striavano i cieli, cinque anni in cui la tecnologia diventa protagonista delle guerre, mostrando tutta la debolezza delle passate strategie militari.

Swamp people: Duelli a sangue freddo

L’obiettivo è sempre quello: catturare il maggior numero possibile di creature in soli 30 giorni. Riparte con una nuova entusiasmante stagione Swamp People: Duelli a sangue freddo, la caccia più difficile in uno dei luoghi più remoti, ostili e misteriosi degli Stati Uniti.

Con immagini di repertorio, video inediti e interviste esclusive ad amici e colleghi, History Factor celebra gli artisti che hanno rivoluzionato la musica mondiale con la loro voce, le loro canzoni e la loro straordinaria personalità.
