Wegener receives two U.S. patents for satellite media distribution

For its technologies to improve the quality and efficiency of satellite media distribution networks, Wegener has been awarded two U.S. patents for a pair of its design techniques.

The first patent, entitled “Apparatus and Method for Accommodating Loss of Signal,” (Patent # 7,263,648), describes an innovative method for simultaneously recording and playing back digital media content from flash memory storage.

The second patent, entitled “Error Correction Apparatus and Method,” (Patent #7,296,204), describes a bandwidth-efficient process for ensuring flawless file distribution within a satellite media distribution network. When a file is transmitted via satellite, this process enables the digital satellite receiver to determine if all of the content in a given file has been received. If data is missing, the receiver notifies the sender — via a terrestrial back channel such as the Internet — precisely which data packets are missing.
