Our products provide patented Fazzt FEC technology in all our software for delivery over satellite to all receivers at once, using multicasting technology. A single missing or corrupt packet in these encrypted files can make the whole file unavailable. Our technology is ensured, eliminating potentially 2-way networking for feedback and retransmissions.
