What is SATX?
SATX is primarily a file transfer software program. It runs on IBM and compatible PCs and we have versions available that support a variety of operating systems. SATX was designed to transfer virtually any type of file from a single location to multiple locations, simultaneously, over a data broadcasting network. In some ways, you can think of SATX as a powerful COPY command. It's job is to create an exact duplicate of the files you specify on the hard drives of hundreds or even thousands of PCs simultaneously through a broadcasting network. For complete details and specifications on SATX, check out the SATX specifications page.
SATX Primary Features
SATX Versions Available
The serial version uses standard RS-232 serial com ports on PCs. This version is ideal for FM subcarriers, TV using VBI, and other applications where the data receivers and encoders require serial interfaces. If you want a serial version, but need data rates in the 115,200 bits per second range and beyond, the SATX serial version could still be an option for you. Contact us if this is one of your needs.
Thanks to the Internet, the TCP/IP suite of protocols is now nearly ubiquitous. To respond to this change, we now offer an IP compatible version of SATX. This version runs on PCs and interfaces with the IP Stack built into Windows 95/98/NT. The IP version of SATX was initially developed for broadcast applications which utilized data receivers and encoders with Ethernet and Fast Ethernet interfaces. Additional refinements are under development to optimize the product for use in LANs, WANs, and potentially across land-based Internet connections. Support is included for unicast, broadcast, and multicast applications.
Serial (RS-232) versions are available for the following operating systems:
IP compatible versions are available for the following operating systems:
SATX Evaluation Versions
Evaluation versions are also available. Click here to learn more about evaluation versions of SATX.
If you want a feature we don't have, let us know. We can probably build a custom version to meet your needs.
If you are trying to develop your own solutions and would like to have file transfers as part of your applications, we can provide you with
Source Code Availability- Protecting Your Investment
We believe that the source code to a great application is truly the "keys to the kingdom." Well, after many years of development and refinement, we are prepared to make the keys available to our customers for some versions of SATX. At this time, we are offering source code to existing customers and new customers who are willing to commit to a certain number of licenses. Please be sure to ask about this program if you need source code for your applications.
