Intelsat launches IP distribution platform

intelsatIntelsat has launched a next-generation, IP content distribution platform and managed service called IntelsatOne Prism. 

Announcing the introduction, Intelsat said that IntelsatOne Prism is designed to help media companies meet the demands of a “TV everywhere and increasingly over-the-top (OTT) society.”

IntelsatOne Prism is designed to allow media customers to conduct multiple content transmissions via one platform – including linear video, file transfer, VoIP, internet access and data exchange.

The platform is fully integrated with Intelsat’s global satellite fleet and IntelsatOne terrestrial network and is based on the Newtec Dialog multiservice broadcast solution.

“The media landscape is changing rapidly, with video and data services entering a period of unprecedented convergence,” said Peter Ostapiuk, head of media product management, Intelsat.

“In order to address the changes occurring in their business models, our media customers want services that support their needs today, but also are adaptable to future formats and standards that may be deployed in the future.

“IntelsatOne Prism’s IP technology supports services that provide media customers with the perfect evolution that will extend media IP networking to the sky, delivering reliable, high-quality content contribution and distribution regardless of location or device.”
