Working with Network Innovations, OneWeb and Zixi, Open Broadcast Systems will deliver a live, broadcast quality video feed from the Network Innovations facility in Essel, Netherlands, to the IBC Show floor. This demo follows the company’s world-first use of OneWeb to deliver a UEFA Champions League match from the Faroe Islands in July.
In addition to the company’s RIST (Reliable Internet Stream Transport) implementation, the company is announcing an in-house, high performance, SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) protocol implementation. Built around modern, event-driven software development practices, the SRT implementation is interoperable with existing third-party solutions at very low CPU loads.
“It’s great to be able to demonstrate the power of OneWeb at IBC. OneWeb provides the global coverage of satellite with the flexibility of IP at the high and consistent data rates required for international sports transmissions. Our customers expect the most technically advanced and stable SRT implementation out there from our encoders and decoders so that they can deliver to SRT-capable endpoints. Our in-house implementation gives them unmatched confidence that they can interoperate with the wide range of SRT endpoints with the highest reliability.” — Kieran Kunhya, Founder and CEO, Open Broadcast Systems
