NovelSat to Demo NovelSat NS4 – Up to 45% Higher Efficiency vs DVB-S2 Without Additional Hardware

Ra’anana, Israel, March 2, 2015 Today, leading satellite transmission technology provider NovelSat announced that they will start demonstrating NovelSat NS4, the next generation successor to the industry’s spectral efficiency waveform leader, NovelSat NS3.

NovelSat has invited satellite industry leaders to witness demonstrations of NovelSat NS4, promising up to 45% higher spectral efficiency compared with DVB-S2, the industry leading satellite transmission standard. What’s more, as opposed to some extensions to the standard, such as DVB-S2X, NovelSat can deliver the efficiency of NovelSat NS4 without deploying any new hardware.

The new NovelSat NS4 waveform, like all NovelSat features and options, is a software upgradable option that will be able to be implemented over the air (OTA) on all NovelSat satellite devices.

“NovelSat NS4 Is the culmination of efforts on the part of some of the most talented engineers I have ever had the privilege of working with,” said Itzik Wulkan, NovelSat CEO. “As testing and fine tuning move forward, we expect even better efficiency from NovelSat NS4 when we release it later this year.”

In 2011, when NovelSat announced that NovelSat NS3 would provide 25% higher spectral efficiency compared with DVB-S2, industry experts and competitors doubted that it was possible. With NovelSat NS4, NovelSat again surpasses all industry efficiency expectations with a 45% hardware-free efficiency boost.
