DVB-S2 Headend Solutions for Satellite Broadcasters

Digital Video Broadcasting

Today, there is increasing demand for satellite broadcasters and pay TV operators to deliver content to both the primary screen and to multiscreen devices. Customers increasingly expect to stream linear channels and on-demand content to computers, mobile devices and smart TVs. As consumer viewing behavior changes, the architecture to support a growing video ecosystem must also adapt.

A unified video headend that complies with DVB-S2 standards provides satellite broadcasters and pay TV operators the agility to quickly and easily implement the latest codecs and video processing advancements across multiple channels to reduce time to market and streamline operations. And, it creates an opportunity to make the best use of bandwidth for each DVB-S2 multiplex. Some video operators may use this to transmit as many channels as possible. Others may offer enriched viewing experiences such as ultra-high definition (UHD) or high dynamic range (HDR).
