The satellite operator has strengthened its position in UHDTV with new content to be received live during the show provided by new Hispasat 4K channel partners.
HISPASAT will also show a SAT>IP technology demo, converting satellite TV service into IP signals for an efficient distribution to multiscreen devices.
The company will also be presenting in the NAB its innovative DTH product and service portfolio.
The Spanish satellite communications operator HISPASAT plans to present its latest solutions for the broadcast market at the 2015 NAB Show, held in Las Vegas from 13-16 April. At its stand (SU10417), the operator will be demonstrating a number of its technological advances in the field.
The first demonstration will present the main features of the SAT>IP communications protocol, aimed at transporting an audiovisual signal, received via satellite, to domestic IP networks. This protocol converts the satellite signal into an IP signal at the reception point itself, using a SAT>IP server. Indeed, this server may be incorporated into domestic facilities, either by installing it directly into (IP-LNB) satellite dishes, or installing it in users’ homes. This technology makes it possible to offer more efficient, high-quality satellite TV services for all types of screens and devices found within the home, using networks already established in the building.
New content on the "Hispasat 4K” TV channel
The second live demonstration will reveal the new content on "Hispasat 4K” Ultra-High Definition (UHDTV) TV channel. This is the result of collaboration between three companies: Slow TV, Avis Productions and Drone Madrid, who have recently joined HISPASAT UHDTV channel by adding new contents. The channel includes nature documentaries, as well as content filmed by drones, adapted to 4K capturing. HISPASAT will be as well presenting its latest solutions in UHD technology field, which has been already applied to Hispasat 4K TV channel, offered free to air through Amazonas 2 and Hispasat 1E satellites.
Lastly, those who visit HISPASAT's booth will have the opportunity to discover the latest advances on HISPASAT's DTH service portfolio. This year the company will focus on Easy DTH and Easy Hybrid DTH products that provide comprehensive technological and operational solutions that facilitate DTH services launching within HISPASAT's coverages.
Each year Las Vegas NAB Show brings together over 90,000 media and entertainment professionals from 160 countries to debate and present the latest technological trends, mainly for TV and Internet markets.
