Building a Unified DVB-T2 and Multiscreen Video Headend

Originally Aired

November 16, 2016

Today, broadcasters and video operators around the world are delivering content to customers via cable, satellite and terrestrial technologies based on DVB standards. Combining linear video and multiscreen infrastructure in a unified headend offers video operators flexibility, creates cost savings and streamlines operations.

Terrestrial broadcasters face pressure to reduce bandwidth as spectrum from the original DVB-T range is reclaimed for other uses. Implementing a flexible, software-based headend solution when migrating to DVB-T2 is key because it enables broadcasters to maintain video quality and condense as many services as possible into less bandwidth. A unified headend with video solutions from AWS Elemental and Nevion can deliver channels to many transmitters via IP, satellite or both, and can deliver the same channels and additional video-on-demand content to multiscreen devices.

In this webcast you will:

  • Learn how AWS Elemental and Nevion have partnered to build a DVB-T2 compliant unified headend solution
  • Understand the key considerations in using this solution to deliver video to primary screen and connected devices, including statistical multiplexing
  • Discover how a software-based headend enables terrestrial video operators to quickly and flexibly adapt to a fast-changing industry
