Distribution of audience by type of reception

How will the audience of 4.5 “satellite” households be distributed by reception type from January next year? According to forecasts based on a March study, the distribution will be as follows.

620 thousand (14%) will remain subscribers of satellite “free” television and believe that those TV channels that can be further watched in FTA mode will be enough for them. However, it cannot be ruled out that at least some of these people will change their minds over the course of 2020.

The largest beneficiary of satellite TV channel coding will be DTT – terrestrial digital terrestrial television Continue reading

Inmarsat Presents Maritime Industry Internet of Things (IIoT) Study

Humanity consumes more and more. Now we are more than ever, we are accustomed to new technologies and constant access to the information that they bring into our lives. This has a significant impact on enterprises operating in the main sectors – agriculture, energy, marine, mining, and transport sectors. Manufacturers are forced to optimize technological and business processes, must track goods from production to the final destination, suppliers must receive as much information as possible about the goods they deliver.

The data generated by such advanced intelligent technologies as the Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the work of entire industries, becoming a new benchmark for business. Now you need to effectively collect information, creating new value for customers, until competitors repulse them. Continue reading

Swivel Antenna

Probably many people know that television satellites are in a geostationary orbit, which is a circular orbit located above the Earth’s equator (0 latitude), on which, an artificial satellite rotates around the planet with an angular velocity equal to the angular velocity of the Earth’s rotation around its axis, and constantly dwells on the same point on the earth’s surface. The satellites are located on the so-called polar arc (photo 1) at an altitude of approximately 36,900 km above sea level, the satellite’s altitude is not chosen randomly, but based on calculations of centrifugal force so that the satellite does not fall to the ground and does not fly into open space. So, a rotary antenna is a motorized antenna, designed in such a way that when moving it describes exactly the same arc as the one on which the satellites in space are located. Due to the Earth’s gravitational force and the centrifugal force that counteracts it, the satellites are stationary relative to the earth’s surface, so it’s enough to install a device (motor) to move the antenna along the given satellite Continue reading
