WEGENER® provides a cost-effective solution to efficiently manage TV distribution to multiple time zones and launch supplementary channels. The WEGENER file-based solution allows networks to distribute programming once, and then seamlessly recombine the video files back into high quality broadcast channels.
The iPump Media Server is an integrated digital satellite receiver and multimedia server. It is part of WEGENER’s complete end-to-end solution for content delivery and management of live and file-based content.
Networks can use WEGENER’s file-based TV distribution solution to introduce new regional programming and/or regional advertising. Alternately, networks can rapidly test new channel concepts with mimimum bandwidth commitments.
As with all WEGENER downlink devices, elements of advanced network control are tightly integrated to enable ‘hands-free’ downlink operations. It allows a central network operator to seamlessly automate support for video headends at multiple locations and in different time zones.
