    [Satellite TODAY 10-06-11] Signal quality and video delivery solutions provider Sencore has deployed two SMD 989 DVB-S/S2 satellite modulators to NES Communications, which has installed the new hardware in its HD digital satellite uplink vehicle, Sencore announced Oct. 5.

    NES Communications Vice President and General Manager Keith Valeri said his company selected the SMD 989s in order to provide clients with a full range of modulation options for C-band uplinking.
    “As a private contractor to all of the major broadcast and cable outlets, we’re dedicated to meeting our clients’ varying transmission requirements. The Sencore SMD 989 units will give NES the flexibility to service networks that only require 8PSK modulation, as well as those that are ready to push the technology to 16APSK or even 32APSK from the field,” Valeri said in a statement.
    The Sencore SMD 989 was designed to provide frequency-agile IF output and an optional L-band upconverter, which eliminates the need for an external upconverter in L-band distribution scenarios, Sencore said.
