Demonstrating its latest capabilities in IP delivery for both contribution and distribution markets is Sematron, which is highlighting the company’s MBNG (Multi-Bearer News Gathering) solution that it says will increase reliability and reduce operational risk, utilising 3G/4G cellular, Ka and Ku-Band satellite and its MIMO wi-fi mesh.
Sematron’s MBNG solution is designed to provide reliable delivery of video and data over any available bearer, giving users the peace of mind that, if one bearer degrades during a broadcast, video quality will remain constant. This, says the company, is ideal for content critical broadcasting from remote or challenging locations.
The MBNG solution can bond up to 10 cellular connections with two Ethernet ports for satellite connectivity and a wired internet. It also has a built-in wi-fi modem to allow connection via Sematron’s wi-fi mesh.
Sematron is also showing a selection of what it describes as high efficiency IP satellite modem solutions, as well as its encoding/decoding technology
