WEGENER adds SD, HD video streams to VSAT data network

WEGENER has announced the operation of live SD and HD video broadcasts on a VSAT network from ViaSat.

VSAT networks provide bandwidth-efficient solutions for distributing interactive IP data between thousands of data centers, retail locations, corporate LANS, schools, the Internet and home offices.

Using standard ViaSat LinkStar uplink and downlink equipment, WEGENER added live HD and SD video streams to a VSAT network traditionally used to transmit data files. The WEGENER SMD 515 IPTV set-top box successfully decoded artifact-free video.
