Telenor Satellite Broadcasting (TSBc), a provider of digital pay-TV services in the Nordic region, has chosen the Thomson Video Networks‘ ViBE VS7000 multi-screen video platform to deliver streaming services for its key broadcast clients.
"With the introduction of the ViBE VS7000 multi-screen transcoding platform, Thomson Video Networks has delivered a very interesting new product," said Torkel Aamodt Thoresen, chief technologist (broadcast), Telenor Satellite Broadcasting. “In our operation, the VS7000 produces excellent picture quality while at the same time offering critical functions such as blackout management, service monitoring, and flexible DRM handling."
