Hispasat unveils VoD solution at IBC2018

The service will allow HISPASAT's clients to offer a complete TV experience including VOD and linear TV, and will allow end users to watch content any time without the need for internet access.
Hispasat and Quadrielle are presenting the solution at IBC in an end-to-end demo integrated in a SmarDTV Global Set Top Box.

Spanish satellite telecommunications operator Hispasat and French software provider Quadrille have introduced its new solution for non-linear satellite-managed services, Push VoD (Video on Demand) at IBC2018. The solution allows on-demand video content to be distributed via satellite without the need for internet access.

Through this new solution, Hispasat provides an effective tool to its clients in the media market who wish to distribute non-linear content or VoD via satellite quickly and easily. Additionally, the platform can also be used in market segments such as mobility, corporate and government services.

Hispasat selected the QuadriFast software package to send video files and advertisements as a response to the new media consumption habits, which go beyond traditional television.

Speaking about the launch, Hispasat’s Chief Commercial Officer, Ignacio Sanchis said: “Innovation in audiovisual services is part of Hispasat’s DNA. We always seek to offer the best solutions that allow our clients to develop and grow their services via satellite. Thanks to the solution that we’ve developed with Quadrille, our clients will be able to offer added value services, such as VoD or catch-up TV, in a simple and efficient manner.”

Xavier Battas, CEO of Quadrille, added: “The time has come when satellite TV viewers can have access to non-linear contents as if they were connected to the internet. The great thing about accessing non-linear contents via satellite with QuadriFast is that users will always have the best visual experience without any loss of image quality. We at Quadrille are very proud of having provided our experience in this field to Hispasat.”
