Thomson to assist Russian mobile provider with bandwidth optimization

Thomson will provide DVB-H broadcast technology to Sistema Mass Media (SMM), a branch of Russia’s AFK Sistema, which plans to launch a mobile multimedia service.

Initially the service will be available in Moscow and 16 other Russian cities with populations greater than 1 million. Thomson has provided the technology to distribute content by satellite from Moscow to other regional transmitters, as well as the headend platform.

Thomson is providing statistical multiplexing and time slicing technology to optimize the available bandwidth. The Thomson solution uses tight integration between the ViBE mobile television encoders and the Opal DVB-H IP encapsulator to vary the compression ratio on each channel dynamically and manage time slicing.
