28 Jan 11. Boeing successfully conducted its first over-the-air ground test of a Ka-band satellite communications (SATCOM) phased-array antenna system that will enable wideband SATCOM on aircraft, providing increased bandwidth for networking in flight. This third-generation antenna system gives commercial and military aircraft operators worldwide the ability to offer communications using the growing fleet of commercial K- and Ka-band satellites. The low-profile antenna is also an option for government operators using military satellites such as the Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) system. The active phased array system uses electronically controlled beams to transmit and receive signals from a designated satellite. The test demonstrated the new system’s ability to support a range of applications, including file transfer and a Voice over Internet Protocol videoconference. (Source: Shephard)
28 Jan 11. Barco offers an all-in-one technology refresh program to upgrade its lamp-based video walls to its latest series of LED-lit rear-projection video walls, enabling customers to maximize their initial investment in Barco control room visualization technology for critical 24/7 applications. Barco’s video wall upgrade kit enables customers to bring their existing Barco display models up to the latest high-quality standards. By converting existing video walls from a lamp-driven to an LED-powered engine, owners of Barco’s video walls can build on previous investments and achieve enhanced image quality, improved reliability and lower total cost of ownership with minimal effort. The introduction of the upgrade kits follows the launch of Barco’s new family of LED-lit rear-projection video walls in 2010. Thanks to a liquid cooling system, these new video walls offer up to 80,000 hours of LED lifetime and a brightness level that is 20% higher than any competing system. The new video walls are also equipped with Barco’s proprietary Sense6, a unique auto-calibration technology that ensures brightness and color stability over time and across the entire display, eliminating the need for manual adjustments. Barco now has a technology refresh program for three generations of video walls (OV-D2, D1 and p-Si), ensuring customers that an investment in Barco technology will last them many years.
