The latest version of Intorel’s cutting-edge monitoring and control solution, Visionic 5.3, has arrived.
This new version contains various new features and improvements, which makes it possible for Visionic to load and run faster and for the user to execute his tasks quicker and more efficiently.
As in previous Visionic versions, our clients’ feedback is essential for us as it shows us what their needs are and helps us to enhance Visionic according to the different requirements.
One of the new features is the Live Charting System, which gives the ability to show Logging data in a real-time chart. Since it is web-based, it can be used on different places, like in the custom dialogs, embedded inside the Visionic client directly or viewed separately in the browser.
The Logging and Charting functionality has also been improved, as the automatic start of logging configurations is now possible. In fact, the user can define which configurations to start automatically on the server start.
As we keep up-to-date with the latest technologies and due to the new developed features in Visionic 5.3, .NET Framework 4.5 should be installed on the server computer, in order for them to fully work.
Visionic’s device drivers’ library has similarly been greatly increased with new drivers to keep it up-to-date and to service more and more manufacturers by supporting new device drivers. Some of the new developed drivers are: Dantherm ACUE 3000, Radyne RCS-11, Mirad VPC Controller and many others.
Visionic 5.3 is available, free of charge (license only), to all our clients who have a valid Service Level Contract covering an existing Visionic 5 generation system and to all who purchased Visionic 5.x in the last 6 months.

Sat Magazine published an interview with Intorels Chief Operating Officer Dragana Lazic-Mijanovic. Dragana is talking about Intorels successes over the past year, challenges for the satellite industry in the coming year, and providing insight on upcoming projects from Intorel for 2013.
What successes did Intorel enjoy over the past year?
With the on-going switchover to digital transmission, Intorels goal was to develop a product that would answer the challenges that broadcasters are facing every dayhow to insure uninterrupted, reliable transmission of the content. We answered these challenges by developing DVB Master Commander – DVBMC.
DVBMC is the ultimate cross-platform software for monitoring and controlling of DVB equipment. It is the first universal solution targeted directly toward todays broadcasting operators.
The software runs on all platforms and comes as a complete system consisting of full network device management, service management, real-time alarming, as well as trending and scheduling functions, which are usually sold as separate products.
Long-term relationships are crucial in the ever-changing market where clients are looking more and more to cut costs by engaging the competition. Intorel take it as a success and a sign of trust that over the years the list of our long-term clients faithful to our products and services has grown bigger. We take it as an ultimate proof of the quality of our products. Long term cooperation is beneficial for both the client and the supplier. We know what clients need and want, and we can easily, and with full understanding, answer their needs.
Independent execution of the projectsIn the last year we mostly executed the projects directly with the customers. We have seen many of the system integrators disappear over the last few years. Now, clients are taking over specification of the project and the project management and working directly with the manufacturers. This direct contact allows for fast and extremely efficient execution of the projects. In addition, direct contact with the customer is giving us an access to the real-time situations and enabling us to get the information that is necessary for the development of the future products fully tailored to the customers needs.
New marketsIntorels experience and expertise, quality of our products and flexibility of the execution were the main reasons which allowed us to enter new markets, such as Myanmar. With the appropriate preparation, it is possible to execute the project even on a long distance with the same quality and speed. That was a case with the uplink project that we executed in close cooperation with our local partner and the client.
What challenges did Intorel need to overcome this past year, and what challenges will the satellite industryand specifically your market segmentface over the next few months?
Cutting costsWith the content that is more and more available on the Internet and fibre, clients are less ready to pay for the content (only sport, kids entertainment and the adult industry remain the contents that are earning money). Broadcasters are facing a rough time as their revenues are diminishing. At the same time, they are facing tough competition and ever increasing demands from their clients. For that matter, the need for the reliable automation and products that will increase reliability is obvious. Of course, our answer was DVBMC.
Cutting staff costsIts a challenge, as the staff should be an engine of the development of the new products and the implementation of the projects. Its not rare that projects are late because the staff is overbooked and companies understaffed. This leaves us with more work for suppliers. The investors are blocking development, so the projects are getting longer and longer and there is no space for the development of the new advanced features and products. The staff has less time to develop proper ideas of improvement of the work process.
Purchasing managers and investorsThe cutting of costs and staff is complicating the process of orders. Administration costs are growing and we do wonder if there is any merit to this additional control. No more development and research. The contact with suppliers is quite often damaged as investors are doing all in their power to cut costs, even if such extends projects, damages relationships, and at the end, makes the projects even more expensive
What upcoming projects are in the works and what may we expect to see from Intorel over the next three to four quarters?
Intorel is working on the overhaul of its flagship monitoring and controlling software, Visionic. We will be releasing Visionic 6.0 in 2013we also expect a lot from our DVB Master Commander.
Visionic has been in the market for more than a decade and its fair to say that Visionic has become an industry standard for monitoring and controlling. We are keeping our pace with the latest software and hardware developments and making the product more stable and easier to use with every upgrade. We are also planning to organize worldwide road shows to demonstrate and advertise Intorels products; the exact dates will be confirmed at our Company website, so please visit when such is convenient to do so.
