SkyStream has announced the availability of DVB S-2 support in its Source Media Router (SMR) line of IP encapsulators, which enable the delivery of IP video and data content over DVB and ATSC-based networks.
DVB S-2 is a critical technology standard to enable the implementation of new satellite-based video and data services, such as two-way Internet over satellite, VOIP, video on demand, high-definition television (HDTV) and for broadcasting more local channels. It also will enable cost effective transmission of an increasing volume of data.
In addition to the new DVB-S2-ready versions of SkyStream's SMRs, existing deployments of SkyStream Source Media Routers can be upgraded to support DVB-S2. These include: SMR-24, SMR-25 and SMR-26.
