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
