Thomson solution for Noorsat
February 7, 2011
Thomson Video Networks announced that Bahrain-based satellite service provider Noorsat is powering its rapid growth with an extensive and flexible Thomson headend technology solution. Over the past two years Thomson has worked with Noorsat to scale its operation up to a current 63 channels delivered over six transponders.
During the two-year project timeline, and as Noorsat ‘s requirements have grown, Thomson’s architecture has allowed the satellite operator to maintain security of service while further developing its infrastructure during continuous on-air operation. The Thomson Video Networks installation for Noorsat comprises a range of encoders including the ViBE EM1000 connected to NetProcessor 9030 Multiplexers, and the Thomson XMS management system.
