Hispasat completes IP device delivery over satellite trial

Spanish satellite operator Hispasat says it has successfully completed a three-year project to test the distribution of satellite-delivered content to IP-connected devices around the home from a single receiver.

The Saturno project, which started in 2010, was carried out with Spanish companies Blusens Broadcom, Gradient, Iecisa, Ikusi and Promax, and centered on the distribution of content to IP devices via WiFi and cable infrastructure based on conversion to IP in the home and the DLNA standard.

The final demonstration of the project, which took place at the Digital Home centre of the Polytechnic University of Madrid, integrated all points of the multimedia content

distribution chain in the home including headers, receivers and display equipment, according to Hispasat.
