NovelSat deploys advanced video solution for Anthem channels

NovelSat FUSION enables broadcasters to squeeze even more SD, HD and UHD channels into less satellite bandwidth.

NovelSat, a global player in content connectivity over satellite has completed the deployment of NovelSat’s advanced video solution, supporting C-band spectrum transition for two of Anthem Sports & Entertainment’s channels – AXS TV, US-based music, entertainment and lifestyle television network and HDNet MOVIES, which delivers cult classic films to its American audience.

NovelSat worked with Anthem to transition hundreds of earth stations to satellite operator video service for the primary distribution of video feeds and to deploy NovelSat’s FUSION solution for video transmission, edge transcoding and BISS2-CA encryption/decryption.

Speaking about the deployment, Gary Drutin, CEO of NovelSat, said: “We are proud to have been selected by Anthem in the transition of its video distribution network with new compression and content protection solutions for two of its US channels. This accomplishment is a testament to NovelSat’s technological leadership and to the game-changing nature of our FUSION product. We look forward to further transition satellite delivery networks with our advanced and highly efficient solutions.”
