Farewell Michael Ulbricht, Managing Director - Welcome Michael Ulbricht Senior Consultant

28.05.2021 16:56

Michael UlbrichtThe year 2021 is a very special one. Not only for SatService GmbH, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, but for the whole industry, indeed for the whole world. We are happy that all our employees and their families have remained healthy so far and that SatService continues to operate successful and stable in the market despite the pandemic.But another important event is casting its shadow ahead: the founder and managing director Michael Ulbricht is leaving the command bridge of SatService on 1st June of 2021. This was already planned in 2019, when he brought the second managing director Wilfried Megger on board and sold his SatService company shares to Calian Group Ltd.

We all look back on our joint successes with joy, pride and gratitude. Michael Ulbricht founded the company, built it up and made it into what it is today: an innovative and reliable partner for all users and providers of professional ground-based satellite communication.

“Michael Ulbricht has been an excellent leader for his staff, a steadfast partner in business and wonderful ambassador for SatService and Calian,” said Patrick Thera, President Advanced Technologies, Calian. “We wish him all the best and are grateful for his continued support as he changes his focus to help us with strategic initiatives. Since acquiring SatService in April 2019, their organization has thrived on the leadership of Michael and Wilfried and we have had opportunities to combine our satellite communications capabilities for even further growth. This is just the beginning of a new era for our combined organization under Calian.”

And we are all the more grateful to be able to welcome Mr Ulbricht to our ranks after his active time as Managing Director. As a senior consultant, he will continue to serve the company, the partners and the management as an important and competent contact person with all his knowledge and experience. We are looking forward to continuing our successful cooperation.

Hessischer Rundfunk (ARD) Selects ATEME/SatService to Service its DVB-T2 Premium TV & OTT Offer

24.05.2017 14:41

SatService today announced that Hessischer Rundfunk, one of the ARD members, a public broadcaster in Germany, has deployed ATEME’s compression and statistical multiplexing solutions for its DVB-T2 and OTT services. Its brand new HEVC statmux headend uses ATEME TITAN full-software solution for delivering 15 full-HD channels with premium video quality. The solution was supplied by SatService GmbH, an ATEME business partner and product distributor for the DACH region.

ATEME is the leading vendor of pure-software encoding solutions highlighted by the TITAN software family that delivers the highest video quality at minimum bitrates for cable, DTT, DTH and OTT. ATEME’s software modules approach provides even more flexibility to combine:  any input/output, any CODEC, any resolution, from an encoder to a video headend in a box.

“We are pleased to announce having selected ATEME to service our new DVB-T2 converged headend,” said Jörg-Peter Jost, Senior Engineer at Hessischer Rundfunk.  “We decided to deploy the TITAN solution to deliver our premium services with the highest video quality on all kinds of end user devices. The end-to-end solution by ATEME provides us with the full flexibility we need today in terms of hardware abstraction, third party integration and custom service oriented operations under an unified management system (AMS).”

“Together with ATEME we are proud to deliver this full-software solution,” said Kai Koppenburg, sales director at SatService. “It enables cost-effective creation of live OTT channels, data-center economics and allows greater operational efficiencies.”

Igor Stankovic, EMEA Sales Manager at ATEME said: “TITAN is the ideal solution for converged headend, servicing main and multi-screen applications. As the industry moves to all-IP full-software video solutions fostering unparalleled benefits, more and more tier 1 broadcasters and service providers approve, adopt and deploy ATEME TITAN solutions all over the globe.”

Introduction of new L-Band Beacon Receiver LBRX81

17.03.2017 13:42

SatService GmbH introduces it’s new sat-nms LBRX L-Band Beacon Receiver series for up to 8 satellite signals.

The unique feature of this unit is its 8:1 signal input switch that allows to connect up to 8 different signals that are selected automatically relating to the selected frequency and polarization.

In addition to both polarizations of Low and High Ku-band, simply connect also both polarizations of C-band and /or X-band to the same unit. This gives full flexibility to track with one antenna satellites with beacons in different frequency bands.

The typical application of this receiver is antenna tracking, where the receiver provides the tracking signal level to the antenna step-track controller. Other applications can be pilot measurement and control loops like uplink power control.

Please find here the datasheet for the DIN-Rail Module and the datasheet for the Rack-Mount Version.
