Axcera, a leading manufacturer of high-quality equipment and systems for the television broadcast and broadband wireless access/MMDS industries, and Statmon Technologies Corp, the leading designer of IP-based (Internet Protocol) broadcast facilities management software, recently announced the completion of development on a technical interface that will enable tightly integrated monitoring and control of the Axcera Innovator* and Visionary* Series transmitter lines.

Within the specifications of the development, Axcera customers will have the ability to purchase a plug-and-play Statmon Axess control system for the remote control of their transmitter and transmitter facility. The development will significantly reduce the man-hours required to install and configure a remote control system. The Axess software suites' networkability provides extra value to the customer by enabling multi-site remote operation and increased flexibility in shared antenna operations.

"We're excited about the opportunity to offer our customers a direct connection to our transmitters with seamless integration to a comprehensive remote control product," said Rich Dell, product manager of Axcera.

Chad Kalebic, business development manager for Statmon, went on to say, "This partnership provides us with a solution that few can offer - the ability to control all internal functions of the Axcera transmitters within the same system that controls all other aspects of the facility."
