Satellites provide a great infrastructure for broadcasting live content to large geographical areas, but scarce bandwidth resources make it very expensive and therefore unfit for delivering unicast content, which requires resources that can grow linearly with the number of users.
This whitepaper explains how Broadpeak’s technologies use satellites to deliver live content to a wide range of devices, in a way that is transparent to the existing components (i.e., encoders, players, DRM systems). Two different use cases are detailed: satellite multicast distribution and satellite multicast contribution.
