Satellite operator SES has announced the certification of what it claims to be the world’s first SAT-IP converter by Inverto Digital Labs, a developer of consumer and professional broadcast reception products.
SAT-IP is a new standard and trademark developed and supported by SES. With SAT-IP, satellite-delivered programmes are converted into the IP standard at the point of reception in the home. Households can therefore receive, via their wired or wireless in-home internet distribution system, the full satellite line-up on TVs and various IP-devices including smartphones, tablets, and smart TVs, with different programmes on different devices at the same time.
“SAT-IP is a quantum leap in satellite reception and will make it even more competitive with other reception modes,” said Thomas Wrede, vice-president reception systems at SES. “With SAT-IP, we can fulfill the consumer need to serve a multitude of platforms at home with an excellent satellite signal quality and a variety of content. Satellite TV anywhere in the home, on tablet devices, smartphones, PCs or smart TVs: that is the revolution of SAT-IP.”
