Eutelsat and Broadpeak join for satellite delivery of live TV and VOD to mobile devices

Eutelsat and Broadpeak combine skills

Broadpeak and Eutelsat Communications are combining their complementary skills to offer content providers a satellite-based solution for multiscreen video delivery to connected devices.

 

Their new offer is a gamechanger for extending access to video content on mobile devices beyond terrestrial networks and has a competitive edge for mass market delivery of OTT services.

 

Eutelsat’s new SmarBeam solution

SmartBeam, Eutelsat’s new service is designed to enable broadcasters and pay-TV operators to leverage the ubiquitous coverage of satellites to broadcast video content in IP format, creating a network that is dedicated to IP-native terminals, including tablets and smartphones. SmartBeam works with any WiFi-enabled device, supporting instant channel change, DRM security, and low latency.

 

NanoCDN technology, behind Eutelsat’s SmarBeam product

Broadpeak’s nanoCDN™ product is the underlying streaming technology for SmartBeam. It allows operators and content providers to contain their bandwidth requirements to a few megabits per second in order to multicast high-quality OTT services to millions of simultaneous devices.

 

SmartBeam redefines how satellite can extend access to live and on-demand content on mobile devices, enabling an exceptional quality of experience for OTT customers located beyond range of terrestrial networks”, has said Jacques Dutronc, Chief Development and Innovation Officer at Eutelsat.

 

“In combining our skills with Broadpeak we are ready to support TV broadcasters as they evolve into a multi-platform environment, starting with Tricolor TV, Russia’s leading pay-TV operator, that has selected SmartBeam for the first satellite network in Russia to deliver video content to mobile devices”.

 

“By teaming up, Eutelsat and Broadpeak have pioneered the delivery of adaptive streaming over satellite”, said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO at Broadpeak. Combining our nanoCDN technology with SmartBeam gives content providers and operators an opportunity to make a big splash in the OTT multiscreen environment, offering viewers a high quality of experience on connected devices, without making a significant investment in infrastructure”.
