Caton Technology Links Mundial Church’s Congregations Across Brazil

Mundial Church, one of the leading houses of worship in Brazil, recently produced a remarkable live event, broadcast across the country thanks to Caton Technology and partner Elitte Telecom.

Caton provided high quality, low latency links over the public internet, eliminating the need for satellite uplinks to make the long journey to the venue.

Mundial Church’s headquarters and broadcast facilities are in São Paulo, Brazil. As part of its outreach mission, it wanted to transmit a four-hour live event from Manaus, in the heart of the Amazon region, a distance of more than 3800 km. A satellite link between the two sites was impractical, not just because of the cost, but also because of the carbon footprint of driving heavy trucks through such an environmentally sensitive region.

Caton provided the solution, affordably and reliably. The Caton Xchange Converter is an appliance that provides a bridge between professional video signals and IP connectivity, in this case over the public internet. It is powered by Caton Transport Protocols (CTP), the unique suite of more than 30 algorithms built on machine and deep learning approaches to provide assured stability, quality and security over unmanaged networks like the internet. It also incorporates a patented dynamic error correction system to provide security from data loss.

The successful transmission of the Manaus service was part of a proof-of-concept trial which has led to the implementation of Caton transmission services more widely in the church. It not only allows the headquarters to provide tailored content to each of its 13 regions in Brazil, it also allows local centres to contribute to the output directly. The result is that congregations are more closely connected to the work of the church.
