SES SA, Inverto, Abilis and Maxlinear Inc Announce New Satellite TV Home Distribution Component
SES SA, Inverto, Abilis and Maxlinear Inc announced that they have been jointly designing a component for cost-effective IP distribution of satellite television to the home, consisting of a low-noise block down-converter (LNB) that will incorporate eight-channel satellite-to-IP bridging technology. The IP-LNB is a prototype device that will deliver eight concurrent channels from any of the transponders of a satellite orbital position. These channels may be forwarded via IP unicast or multicast to fixed and portable devices. Satellite signals will be distributed via Ethernet, power-line communications (PLC) or a Wi-Fi local area network (LAN). The technology can be used for free-to-air (FTA) or pay TV applications.
