(formerly Scopus Network Technologies) (, a leading provider of digital video networking products that deliver video over broadcast and broadband, IP-based networks, is proud to announce that it has been awarded the prestigious 2005 STAR (Superior Technology Award Recipient) Award for its DVB-S2 solution. Scopus was chosen by the editorial staff of TV Technology Europe magazine at the 2005 IBC convention.

The STAR Award is designed to celebrate and showcase the preeminent technological innovations available to the broadcast industry. TV Technology Europe’s editor reviewed a variety of products and examined the technical applications as well as their overall contribution to the industry.

Scopus’ DVB-S2 provides transmission and receiving solutions for satellite contribution, DSNG and distribution to terrestrial and cable headends. The award-winning DVB-S2’s technologies produce significant benefits for broadcasters by enhancing bandwidth savings, optimizing operational expenses, decreasing transmission power and reducing antenna size.

The new UE-9000 can also include a satellite modulator with L-Band up-converter for DSNG and fixed applications.

“STAR awards are given to innovative and ground-breaking new products,” said Mark Hallinger, Editor of TV Technology Europe. “The products selected help advance the industry- some were chosen because of technical novelty or innovation, some because they filled an important gap in the production or transmission chain, and some because they were just cool products.”

“Scopus continues to produce technologically advanced and reliable products,” commented Scopus Director of Product Marketing, Mr. Yan Mostovoy. “Having our company selected by industry experts, and from a crowded field, demonstrates that Scopus has once again been recognized as an important and respected player in the market.”
