Global Invacom, a leading innovator and manufacturer of technology to
the global satellite industry, has launched a new chip-set that
dramatically opens up the market for cost effective products, useable
world-wide, for the distribution of multiple satellite TV services over
fibre in residential MDUs, hotels and the enterprise.
For the first time the Romeo & Juliet chip-set enables OEMs to develop
their own range of FibreIRS™ compatible products for any satellite TV
service frequency plan in the world with a single, programmable design.
Global Invacom developed the FibreIRS™ architecture and products to
allow cost effective satellite TV service distribution throughout MDUs
and hotels. Resilient, lightweight optical fibre cable backbones are
used rather than traditional expensive coaxial cable that is highly
susceptible to inerference and picture degradation and requires signal
amplifiers throughout the building.
"The Romeo & Juliet chip-set enables single programmable FibreIRS™
compatible satellite TV service distribution products to be software
configurable for any of the many satellite TV frequency plans used in
the world," said Malcolm Burrell, Technical Director.
"Opening up the global FibreIRS™ market to all OEMs is a great
opportunity for the satellite TV industry because single programmable
global products radically reduce manufacturing proliferation driving
cost reductions and increased ROI," said Ian Walsh, VP Business
