The SAT>IP Alliance is updating attendees of the NAB Show in Las Vegas this week about the capabilities of its technology, which lets satellite TV providers deliver content across screens and devices.
The global consortium of satellite operators, device manufacturers, broadcasters and service providers, supports the use of SAT>IP technology to deliver to smartphones, games consoles or tablets in the home.
SAT>IP enables a multi-screen TV experience without using a home broadband connection, reducing operator costs and allowing multi-screen consumer services in locations where broadband is not reliable enough to handle live, high-definition video.
“NAB is the perfect place for satellite service providers to hear about how the SAT>IP protocol can help deliver next generation, innovative multi-screen experiences that will strongly differentiate them from competitors,” said Thomas Wrede, President of the SAT>IP Alliance.
SAT>IP claims it is currently supported by satellites covering 95% of the globe and more than 40 manufacturers and technology companies. The SAT>IP Alliance is a non-profit organisation in charge of setting SAT>IP-related strategic developments and creating working groups through its executive committee.
The main aims of the Alliance have been to promote the use of the SAT>IP protocol throughout the industry, facilitate certification of new devices, and develop and improve the SAT>IP standard.
The SAT>IP Alliance’s members include Eutelsat, Hispasat, Irdeto, Panasonic, Nagra, MaxLinear, SES, Verimatrix and Zinwell.
