Eutelsat and V-Nova partner on HD video contribution solution

Eutelsat and V-Nova are set to unveil a new satellite-delivered, studio-quality HD contribution solution at IBC this year.

The solution is designed to provide an alternative to fibre in terms of quality and bandwidth-efficiency, and uses V-Nova’s Perseus Pro technology to replicate fibre-based video contribution links – but with satellite delivery.

The compression enables 80 Mbps of HD 4:2:2 10 bit video feeds to be uplinked and routed through a standard 36 MHz transponder on Eutelsat’s global satellite fleet.

“The innovation we are presenting at IBC this week with V-Nova gives broadcasters and video service providers a true alternative to fibre and ensures that no compromises need be taken for studio-quality HD contribution of premium sports, cultural and news events,” said Michel Azibert, Eutelsat chief commercial and development officer.

V-Nova co-founder and CEO, Guido Meardi, said: “This solution proves that our compression technology, Perseus, is a truly cross-media codec, bringing tangible benefits across multiple markets including satellite contribution. We are proud of our relationship with Eutelsat, and look forward to working together to help broadcasters and operators bring higher quality services to consumers”.

Eutelsat will exhibit at IBC in hall 1, stand D.59. V-Nova will be in hall 11, stand B30u.
