ENENSYS Technologies has partnered with Eutelsat to leverage on DVB-NIP technology and enable streaming services over 5G networks. The solution is being demonstrated at IBC 2023 with a live signal from Eutelsat Teleport.
DVB-NIP (DVB-Native IP) is the new DVB standard to enable convergence of broadband and broadcast services to increase the reach for satellite and broadcast operations. The new system enables to address multiscreen devices even with unconnected users.
5G with latest 3GPP releases have all the capabilities to distribute content efficiently using unicast, multicast, or broadcast delivery methods. The deployment of 5G networks will require the implementation of very dense, low-power transmitters. Satellite distribution technologies, coupled with the new DVB-NIP standard, are extremely well suited to deliver live media content to these networks.
Eutelsat and ENENSYS will be hosting a live demo of satellite contribution to 5G networks at IBC using the DVB-NIP standard. Live content from several TV channels will be collected at the Eutelsat Teleport, compressed in H264 and packaged in DASH. The packaged content will then be encapsulated by the ENENSYS MediaCast Broadband server and transmitted on Eutelsat’s HOTBIRD satellite at 13° East. The satellite signal will be received during IBC at the RAI Facilities in Amsterdam. The ENENSYS 5G-in-a-box solution eBox hosts the ENENSYS CubeAgent software to receive the DVB-NIP signal from the satellite feed to allow 5G devices to consume the TV content.
