Media Broadcast to highlight IP and HbbTV

Broadcast services provider Media Broadcast will use IBC to highlight broadcast network services for IP-backed live video transmission, an HbbTV portal for hybrid television, satellite platforms for pan-European broadcasting, distribution of digital media through modular media services and international consulting, development and operation of DVB-T2 platforms.

The company will showcase its ability to deliver IP-based live video transmission of SD and HD content of up to 1080i at a video data rate of 64Mbps and access bandwidths of up to 1Gbps through its broadcast network services platform (BNS). The service, which is available internationally, offers broadcast connectivity with BNS handover points in Los Angeles, Washington, London and Vienna. Broadcasters, production companies or studios can feed live content through BNS services both in dial-up and fixed-line mode. File transfer of non-live transmissions is also provided by the new MeXS services, which will be offered as a regular feature in the MeXS base version later this year. Media Broadcast will also highlight its planned MeXS premium services allowing the integration of customer-specific workflows.

The company will also showcase hybrid delivery based on HbbTV. Its hybrid portal will be offered on all distribution platforms in future starting with DVB-T. Media Broadcast is currently in discussion with content partners present on the internet portals of a number of receiver device manufacturers. Media Broadcast will also highlight its four satellite platforms  – 19.2° East, 13° East, 23.5° East and 9° East – as well as delivery of service o multiple devices and consulting and development for DVB-T2 services, notably in Asia.

Media Broadcast will be exhibiting at IBC on Stand 1.B79
