Open Broadcast Systems has supplied a bespoke decoder to deliver Gaelic sport to viewers across Ireland.
The decoder delivers four simultaneous satellite feeds for production company Nemeton TV.
Nemeton TV is using the decoder to decrypt and decode satellite feeds from Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) sporting matches held across the country.
The feeds are received via satellite, decrypted and decoded, then converted for IP delivery to the GAA’s website and social channels, as well as being delivered for a Monday evening highlights programme on TG4, the Irish language television channel.
Open Broadcast Systems also added DVB-S2 demodulation and Basic Interoperable Scrambling System (BISS) Descrambling to the C200 decoder in order to make it even more efficient.
Kieran Kunhya, managing director, Open Broadcast Systems, said: “Satellite technology remains a key way for production companies and broadcasters to gather feeds from the field. However, it can be challenging to convert these quickly and easily for delivering via IP. Putting all of those processes together in one piece of equipment has really streamlined the workflow for Nemeton TV, enabling it to easily extend its coverage to simultaneous matches.”
