Saeta TV Channel 10 Uruguay has selected Open Broadcast Encoder (OBE) for its national ISDB-T platform. OBE is used to encode HD MPEG-4/AVC services compliant with the ISDB-T standard as used in Latin America. A further 15 channels throughout Uruguay will also be using OBE as part of systems integration work by the local team who delivered the encoding platform for Saeta TV.
As a software-defined encoder, OBE is said to allow broadcasters to deploy high quality broadcast encoding on commodity hardware, allowing for new encoders to be rolled out within a very short space of time, simplifying and adding flexibility to operations.
“OBE has been a stable and high quality encoder for our channels that we have been able to build and install locally,” said Marcelo Coggan, chief technology officer of Saeta TV.
