SkyStream Networks, developers of networking solutions for advanced video and IP services, are targeting the Mediaplex 20 Video Services Router platform at satellite operators, service providers and broadcasters who wish to deliver advanced video and data services.
The Mediaplex enables satellite service providers to connect their satellite-based networks to fiber-based infrastructures and offer differentiated services to new customer segments, businesses and consumers.
The Mediaplex enables satellite service providers to connect their satellite-based networks to fiber-based infrastructures and offer differentiated services to new customer segments, businesses and consumers. Satellite service providers are deploying these new hybrid architectures, which offer both satellite and terrestrial connectivity, to not only differentiate their services, but also gain the ability to serve new customer segments.
The wide range of video and data processing capabilities featured in the integrated, chassis-based Mediaplex platform enable the deployment of end-to-end video and data services more quickly and cost-effectively than multi-vendor solutions.
Leading satellite service providers GlobeCast, Belgacom and E-Life Group have selected Mediaplex 20 to reduce capital and operation expenses and time to market for video and data services that can be more efficiently delivered over hybrid fiber and satellite networks.
GlobeCast, a subsidiary of France Telecom, selected SkyStream's Mediaplex and Source Media Router (SMR) to provide an economical, more efficient way to deliver new and existing video and data services to its business and consumer customers.
With SkyStream's integrated solution, GlobeCast can deliver and monitor services, such as: TV channel distribution, business TV and secure satellite Internet delivery from a single platform.
GlobeCast will use SkyStream's system for Direct-to-Home (DTH) broadcast, cable headend distribution and IP content delivery from the U.S. to Europe, the Middle East and Northern Africa.
