Tandberg Ready To Unveil Next-Generation System
[Satellite Today – 4-10-08] Tandberg Television is unveiling its next generation MediaPath secure content delivery system next week at the NAB trade show in Las Vegas, the company said April 9.
The company, now part of the Ericsson Group, says the system has increased flexibility in terms of distributing content to different platforms and devices. Tandberg believes this next generation system offers content providers, network operators, and their affiliates, a scalable, end-to-end solution for the secure point to multi-point delivery of non-linear digital HD and SD TV programs as well as any other file-based content including video on demand programs, advertising, music, and games. Tandberg says the new MediaPath system enables content providers and cable, telco and satellite operators to closely collaborate to deliver more types of content, in more formats, more efficiently.
Using the next generation MediaPath system, media assets can be delivered to receiver locations serving set-top boxes, PCs, and mobile media players. Multiple delivery options include MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC. The MediaPath system offers a performance boost over its predecessor, and supports DVB-S2 (Digital Video Broadcasting – Satellite – Second Generation) to provide faster satellite delivery while simultaneously enabling terrestrial delivery via a shared network. Terrestrial unicast and multicast distribution are supported.
