COMPEL network control to stream HD, SD simultaneously live in VSAT
Wegener will showcase the COMPEL network control system in a live VSAT. Compel is an end-to-end, bidirectional demonstration that will showcase live, simultaneous streaming of one SD and one HD MPEG-4 AVC video feed over an existing VSAT network to the Wegener SMD 515 IPTV set-top box. SDN Global will provide the VSAT network operations.
VSAT networks traditionally use bidirectional satellite transmissions to exchange data for applications such as credit card transactions between retail outlets and a central business office. The advent of advanced video compression technologies, particularly MPEG-4 AVC, means that VSAT networks can now carry high-quality, compressed video over the same network infrastructure.
