Washington DC (USA), March 6, 2017 – TeamCast, the world-renowned leader in digital modulation technologies for Satellite Applications, Wireless Transmission and Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT), and Broadpeak, a leading provider of content delivery network (CDN) technologies, will demonstrate at Satellite 2017 an all IP, multicast and cost effective delivery of live video services via satellite to multiscreen devices at home as well as in public areas.
Using the latest advanced features of DVB-S2X’s Annex M (a process to split a wideband signal, up to 2 Gbps, in order to reduce receiver ICs complexity and price for a mass market approach) and being based on multicast ABR video delivery, the solution really offers a cost-effective way for distributing several thousands of live TV services to unicast devices at home as well as in public areas.
At the head-end level, the demonstration involves a unicast to multicast converter from Broadpeak (BkE200), a wideband IP (GSE) DVB-S2X modulator from TeamCast (TYGER), while at the receiving point there is an IP DVB-S2X demodulator from TeamCast and a multicast to unicast converter from Broadpeak (nanoCDN multicast ABR) which feeds a wide range of devices via standard unicast WiFi connexions.
“We are happy to contribute to this demonstration of advanced Live TV distribution over satellite with our latest wideband IP modems” says Christophe Trolet, Business Unit Manager at TeamCast. “We do believe such a highly efficient way of distributing Unicast services to a wide audience using Multicast IP over satellite will have a great development in the next years” he adds.
“We are excited to partner with TeamCast who has long been a pioneer for satellite innovations. In addition, to making multiscreen delivery via satellite affordable, the solution also offers low latency and low start-up time, bringing new OTT opportunities for satellite operators” says Jacques Le Mancq, CEO at Broadpeak.
The demonstration can be seen on TeamCast’s booth #1940.
