EBU launches Hypermux contribution platform

The EBU’s Eurovision network has launched a new contribution multiplex platform as an upgrade to its global satellite network.

The Hypermux has gone live on the Asian and Americas segements of the Eurovision network. A European rollout is planned in the next few months.

According to the EBU, Hypermux increases the transmission capacity of Eurovision’s satellite transponders in these regions by more than 50%.

“Not only does Hypermux increase the amount of content we can carry, but it does so in a more efficient and secure way,” said EBU network director Graham Warren. “Hypermux is also more resistant to satellite interference, and it simplifies the set-up arrangements for the customer while handling all types of video and data.”
