SATLYNX Introduces Innovative Media Streaming Solution At IBC 2008

by Staff Writers
Luxembourg (SPX) Sep 15, 2008
Satlynx has announced the introduction of a transportable media streaming solution, comprising equipment that can be installed into and on almost any vehicle, plus a flexible and affordable service.

Satlynx Media Streaming addresses the growing online market of event owners, content providers, radio stations and media companies with a need to capture audio or video at events and to stream the content to a production facility for publication online or further distribution.

Designed around a highly robust and easy to use transportable antenna system, this new IP based service uses the latest technology to achieve the highest quality video within the lowest possible bandwidths.

The equipment that comprises an H.264 MPEG-4 AVC compliant codec, satellite modem and antenna can either be vehicle mounted or transported in flight cases. Using a 96cm antenna as standard and one-button push technology, Satlynx Media Streaming can be up and running within 5 minutes.

Dedicated uplink channels of 128kbps for audio and 2Mbps for video are complemented with a 512kbps contended outbound channel for production applications such as email, web browsing and VoIP, giving the remote-site crew flexibility beyond the core application of streaming media.

From the Satlynx teleport the streamed media and other application data streams can then be routed anywhere in the world via its highly resilient European Internet backbone connectivity, via its global VPN infrastructure or via a dedicated circuit if required.

The services Satlynx offers represent innovative steps to reducing the cost of streaming media and in opening the market away from traditional Occasional Use (OU) to direct presentation on the web. Satlynx's Media Streaming is designed for audio or video encoded as AAC or MPEG-4 over IP where the demand for bandwidth is much less and the cost of operation is significantly reduced.

With flexibility and affordability, Satlynx Media Streaming has a wider appeal beyond the news gathering media sector into the corporate and public sectors where the applications of business continuity, surveillance and defence are as relevant.

Ronny Svang, President and CEO of Satlynx said, "Such cost saving over established services is not intended to undermine existing markets but to open new ones. There will always be a strong demand for higher bandwidths capable of supporting HD TV and beyond despite ongoing improvements in codec performance. The opportunity now is for content providers and the owners and organisers of live events in niche interests to distribute their content to a wider audience via the Internet. Previously, the cost of hiring an OU truck and associated airtime would have been prohibitive for this group. Now with Satlynx Media Streaming, costs are an order of magnitude less."
