LBiSat has deployed Path 1’s video gateways to interconnect its own teleport facilities terrestrially, improving the cost and efficiency of delivering IP-based video across its network.
LBiSat, an international satellite communications contracting and consulting firm, has deployed numerous Path 1 IP video gateways in a variety of applications involving terrestrial transport networks for video content contribution.
LBiSat is using the Path 1 equipment to aggregate live and file-based content from its customers by transporting their video feeds over long haul IP networks and backhauling the content to multiple teleport facilities across the United States. Additionally, LBiSat deploy Path 1’s video gateways to interconnect its own teleport facilities terrestrially to improve the cost and efficiency of delivering IP-based video across LBiSat’s own network.
Path 1 said its video gateways ensure that content arrives at its destination with the same quality and reliability with which it was sent. The company noted that this is a challenge for long-haul IP video transport, which often traverses multiple networks that may not be designed to support broadcast-quality video, making the video susceptible to problems and impairments.
Path 1’s ability to backhaul video over IP further benefits LBiSat’s clients by providing them with a broader distribution footprint while enabling them with additional economical means to gather more content more efficiently.
Many of LBiSat’s projects involving Path 1 combine satellite and terrestrial solutions for both broadcast and enterprise organizations; the applications range from ENG to IPTV to video conferencing. In each case, the Path 1 video gateway is used to deliver real-time, broadcast-quality MPEG-2, MPEG-4 and VC-1 video in both SD and HD formats to remote locations over public and private IP networks.
