The SAT>IP Alliance, a global consortium of major satellite operators, device manufacturers, broadcasters and service providers, will be updating IBC2019 (September 13 – 17, 2019, Amsterdam) attendees on SAT>IP’s UHD, multi-screen content delivery capabilities.
SAT>IP Alliance members exhibiting at IBC2019 include: Eutelsat – Hall 1, D59, Hispasat – Hall 1, A39, Irdeto – Hall 1, D51, NAGRA – Hall 1, C81, Panasonic – Hall 11, C45, SES – Hall 1, B51, BS10, BS11, Verimatrix – Hall 5, A59, Hall 1, BS21, BS22.
SAT>IP enables a multi-screen TV experience, including 4K content, without the need for a high-speed home broadband connection. The technology takes a conventional satellite TV signal and converts it to an IP based data stream. This can be transmitted across a standard wired or wireless IP network in the home, and viewed on multimedia and IP compatible devices, such as smart TVs, PCs, tablets, gaming consoles and smartphones.
“IBC2019 is an excellent opportunity for members of the broadcast industry to learn about the numerous benefits of the SAT>IP protocol and how it can enable them to deliver innovative TV services and true multi-room 4K experiences, irrespective of local broadband availability,” said Thomas Wrede, President of the SAT>IP Alliance.
The SAT>IP Alliance brings together members including Arcadyan, Eutelsat, HISPASAT, Irdeto, MaxLinear, NAGRA, Panasonic, SES, Verimatrix and Zinwell. The group supports the use of SAT>IP technology as a way for satellite TV providers to deliver high quality, multi-screen capabilities.
The SAT>IP Alliance has created an ecosystem of flexible, solutions from over 40 manufacturers. SAT>IP can be delivered using satellites covering 95% of the globe, potentially reaching over a billion viewers.
