German technical service provider Media Broadcast will introduce a solution for IP-based distribution of video and audio live streams and the transmission of large files via satellite at the upcoming TV technology fair IBC 2013 in Amsterdam.
NewsSpotter+, as the service is called, uses capacity on Eutelsat's KA-SAT satellite (9° East) which has been tailor-made for IP services.
The nationwide reach of the satellite as well as low-weight, transportable Flyaway antennas enable mobile and quickly set up data transmissions from any location. The service offers a bandwidth of up to 10Mbps for uploads and downloads.
The data is fed via satellite directly into Media Broadcast's broadband distribution circle Broadcast Next Generation Network through which it reaches the recipients. Therefore, no individual downlink site is required. Alternatively, the company offers the method of sending the data via the open Internet.
NewsSpotter+ targets TV and radio channels for outside broadcasting purposes, administration authorities and other organisations.
