LTN Global launches IP-based satellite distribution alternative

Media vendor LTN Global has announced the launch of LTN Wave, a terrestrial IP-based distribution solution designed as an alternative to satellite distribution. 

The company promises that LTN Wave “brings together LTN’s transport, monitoring and control solutions to enable broadcast quality multicast distribution over IP.”

The solution is designed to provide customers with access to the benefits of IP distribution while still maintaining existing satellite-driven workflows, enabling integrated combination of workflows.

The company said that channel owners and content networks will be able to leverage LTN’s IP-based video workflow solutions to reliably and efficiently transport their content from sources to destinations over the fully-managed LTN Network.

This IP-based distribution is designed to combine the traditional benefits of satellite and amplify them with higher performance levels while remaining monetisable and customisable. LTN Wave can also through direct connection to the LTN Network, handoffs with public cloud networks such as AWS and Azure, or connections to private data centers.

Michal Miskin-Amir, General Manager, Transport Division at LTN Global, said: “There are a number of challenges in the marketplace right now pushing channel owners to explore alternatives to satellite distribution, which can be a daunting prospect. We know that ripping and replacing satellite infrastructure wholesale simply isn’t practical as networks look to reduce the risk associated with maintaining a portfolio of channels heavily reliant on C-band satellite. LTN Wave is the perfect solution for seamlessly bridging the transition from satellite to IP.”

Malik Khan, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of LTN Global, said: “For over a decade, LTN has strived to go above and beyond for our customers providing them with a fully-managed network that has yet to suffer a single second of downtime. Now, with LTN Wave, customers have unprecedented workflow flexibility, visibility and end-to-end control of their full-time content. It puts new revenue-enabling opportunities at their fingertips, with greater customization and targeted advertising features as standard. LTN Wave heralds the future of the broadcast industry as IP-based workflows continue to evolve and take hold of video production, contribution, distribution, and monetisation.”
