March 4, 2008
Wegener Corporation, provider of equipment for television, audio and data distribution networks worldwide, has confirmed the operation of live video broadcasts on a VSAT network from ViaSat, showing compatibility of Wegener ‘s video overlay solution for VSAT networks.
VSAT networks provide bandwidth efficient solutions for distributing interactive IP data between thousands of data centres, retail locations, corporate LANS, schools, the Internet, and home offices. Using standard ViaSat LinkStar uplink and downlink equipment Wegener added live high definition and standard definition video streams to a VSAT network traditionally used to transmit data files. Artifact-free video was successfully decoded by the Wegener SMD 515 IPTV set top box.
