Modular SNG

Our modular DSNG solutions  allow the in territory construction and assembly  of a DSNG vehicle using the pre-test building blocks designed commissioned by Holkirk Communications.


The solution is based around the industry leading VITO vehicle but can be adapted to other solutions on request.

Key benefits

  • Reduced project costs & lead time
  • Reduced shipping and import logistics
  • Highly modular with 1.2M / 1.5M antenna available
  • 200W HPA in single thread or redundant mode
  • DVBS / DVB-S2 Video Encoder modulator
  • Optional fully automatic satellite acquisition
  • EZ-DSNG racking system including DC Inverter PSU
  • Production equipment (audio / video)


The EZ-SNG from Holkirk is a high quality, modular approach to satellite mobile earth station design; it consists of four main building blocks, Prime Power and UPS module, Transmission Equipment module, Baseband Equipment module and the Satellite Antenna with integrated RF. (1:1 200W TWT system)


The EZ-SNG is a low cost, fast and reliable way to realise a fully functional DSNG solution with all the system design and commissioning undertaken in the Holkirk factory Installation can be completed in territory, making for simple logistics and reduced shipping cost.
