Global Invacom Group Limited (“Global Invacom” or “the Group”), the satellite communications equipment provider listed on the Singapore Exchange and the U.K. AIM Market, has received approval from one of its largest customers, a leading U.S. satellite TV broadcaster (the “Customer”), to supply a new triple-feed Low Noise Block (“LNB”) product covering the western U.S. region.
Global Invacom secured formal approval from the Customer to supply the Western Arc Triple (“WA Triple”), which uses Digital Channel Stacking (“DCSS”) technology, on 22 August 2017. The WA Triple is used within a 16-tuner system, which enables a simpler installation with less cabling than other systems. Global Invacom is now one of only two suppliers for this new generation of product to this customer.
Delivery of the triple-feed LNB will begin in September 2017. This follows the EA Twin GenII qualification from October 2016, deliveries of which are currently shipping out to meet strong demand from the market.
The approval enables Global Invacom to supply DCSS-generation LNBs to the west U.S. for the first time, marking a major achievement for the Group and strengthening its position as a leading supplier of cutting-edge Sat Comms equipment.
The Group has been developing DCSS-generation LNBs since 2014 and expects to deploy the technology across more LNBs, including those in design and pending approval, for other customers and territories.
