The SAT>IP alliance is to hold a general meeting at IBC 2016 to discuss the next steps for this content distribution technology.

satip technologyMajor European satellite players including Eutelsat, SES and Hispasat and other alliance members such as Nagra, MaxLinear and Panasonic will look at the future of their partnership, which was created last year to market and develop compatible hardware and software for the SAT>IP technology.

During recent months, the SAT>IP alliance has been working on topics such as the extensions of the SAT>IP protocol for CAS>DRM conversion and transcoding, and it also established a partnership with the independent testing house Labwise for certifying SAT>IP products.

According to the organisation, 45 industry partners have supported the SAT>IP standard over last years, developing more than 80 different products that are compatible with its requirements.

Seen by satellite operators as the future of content distribution, the SAT>IP technology converts broadcast signals into IP at the reception point using a small server, which may be located in the satellite dish or in the user's home, and distributes the selected programmes to different IP devices such as tablets, smartphones and laptops.
