Operation of satellite television antennas when converting from MPEG2 to MPEG4

Changes of this kind are inevitable and are dictated by the very spirit of the times. First of all, they are necessary to save a satellite resource, because in connection with the increasing number of HD channels, the frequency band used during their broadcasting is expanding, which means that the cost of renting a resource also increases. The transition to the MPEG4 format allows for more “compact” encoding of video streams, narrowing the band occupied by them. In combination with the DVB-S2 broadcasting standard, which increases the speed of information transfer, this transition provides significant savings Continue reading

Providing telephone communications to remote moving objects using VSAT

Providing telephone communications to remote mobile objects is essential for many modern organizations. Despite the systematic increase in coverage of mobile networks of the main operators, there are still quite a lot of areas where there is no communication as such, and the only thing that can really guarantee communication is satellite technology. On the other hand, IP-telephony is increasingly prevailing over analog standards due to its cost, functionality and simpler structure.

One of the distinguishing features of IP-telephony is the use of technologies and data transfer formats using communication protocols standard for Ethernet technology. Such optimization allows, among other things, to reduce the volume of the data stream, and to use at the same time more communication channels. One of these channels, geographically more advantageous, is a satellite communication Continue reading
