Intelsat unveils Ampiage

Intelsat has introduced Ampiage, a new satellite-based, open-architecture, content delivery and management service for North American multiple system operators (MSOs) seeking to upgrade to MPEG-4 and telcos looking to enter the IPTV market.

Ampiage packages the acquisition, aggregation, encoding, encapsulation and encryption of licensed TV programming from content providers and has the ability to redistribute it in MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 format to cable and telecom service providers. This allows MSOs and telcos either to establish or enhance their digital programming lineups quickly and with low capital investment.

Ampiage centralizes the aggregation of national TV programmer content and offers hundreds of video and audio channels in full digital quality. This enables telcos to efficiently bundle an attractive standard- and high-definition programming package with their voice and broadband services without incurring a significant upgrade cost.
