On the IBC2019 Show Floor: SAT>IP Alliance to Update Advanced Content Delivery Capabilities

The SAT>IP Alliance, a global consortium of world leading satellite operators, device manufacturers, broadcasters and service providers, will be updating IBC2019 (September 13 - 17, 2019, Amsterdam) attendees on SAT>IP’s advanced UHD, multi-screen content delivery capabilities.

The SAT>IP Alliance supports the use of SAT>IP technology as a way for satellite TV providers to deliver high quality, multi-screen capabilities. The SAT>IP Alliance has created an ecosystem of easy to deploy, flexible, solutions from over 40 manufacturers. SAT>IP can be delivered using satellites covering 95% of the globe, potentially reaching over a billion viewers.

SAT>IP Alliance members exhibiting at IBC2019 include:

  • Eutelsat – Hall 1, D59
  • Hispasat – Hall 1, A39
  • Irdeto – Hall 1, D51
  • NAGRA – Hall 1, C81
  • Panasonic – Hall 11, C45
  • SES – Hall 1, B51, BS10, BS11
  • Verimatrix – Hall 5, A59, Hall 1, BS21, BS22


SAT>IP enables a totally seamless multi-screen TV experience, including 4K content, without the need for a high-speed, home, broadband connection. The technology takes a conventional satellite TV signal and converts it to an IP based data stream. This can be transmitted across a standard wired or wireless IP network in the home, and viewed on multimedia and IP compatible devices, such as smart TVs, PCs, tablets, gaming consoles and smartphones.

Thomas Wrede, President of the SAT>IP Alliance, said IBC2019 is an excellent opportunity for members of the broadcast industry to learn about the numerous benefits of the SAT>IP protocol and how it can enable them to deliver innovative TV services and true multi-room 4K experiences, irrespective of local broadband availability.

The SAT>IP Alliance is a non-profit organization in charge of setting forth SAT>IP-related strategic developments and creating working groups through its executive committee. The main aims of the Alliance have been to promote the use of the SAT>IP protocol throughout the industry, facilitate certification of new devices, and develop and improve the SAT>IP standard. The SAT>IP Alliance includes leading satellite operators and manufacturers — Eutelsat, Hispasat, Irdeto, Panasonic, NAGRA, MaxLinear, SES, Verimatrix and Zinwell — and aims to accelerate the adoption of SAT>IP in the satellite industry and push this technology to the consumer market. It promotes the use of the SAT>IP communications protocol, supports integration of CAS-to-DRM technology for distributing Pay-TV services over in-home IP networks, and facilitates product certifications.
