The IBC 2013 conference took place this year during September 13-16, in Amsterdam and was very well attended by industry stalwarts and delegates around the world.
For the fifth year in a row, SES state-of-the-art stand organised the business briefings and showcased its fleet and various products and services for hundreds of industry experts, customers and journalists.
Here, SES presented a wide range of live demos and information sessions, focusing on the challenging topics from satellite and broadcasting industry.
Raising demand for more TV content and high quality images worldwide makes satellite the most ideal infrastructure to deliver to millions of households in both urban and rural areas for years to come.
Leading the way for innovative technology developments, SES provided useful insights about the market readiness for Ultra HD. Visitors could experience the lifelike quality of Ultra HD in a set-up with high-tech hardware applying the latest HEVC encoding and reception technology.
Our team of experts also talked about The SAT>IP communications protocol developed by SES and partners which has already been adopted by over 20 manufacturers. In the SAT>IP demo area a plethora of server and client products were shown and demonstrated. Visitors could test out the applications on iOS and Android devices including the HD Plus TV Guide with live SAT>IP functionality.
Furthermore, the SES IBC stand presented compelling service offerings, such as Broadband Services, TechCom Services, Platform Services and Global Access Services.
Google Earth Tool was available on the booth to showcase SES global fleet of 53 satellites and its beams. This app included technical data for each satellite, coverage maps, EIRP and dish size contours, teleports and fibre network information and SES office locations worldwide.
This year’s briefings have also covered the new opportunities that SES is witnessing in the satellite industry; the surge in demand for mobility services on land, sea and air as demand for connectivity increases as well as SES’ growing presence in the developing markets of Asia, Africa and Eastern Europe.
We’re looking forward to seeing you at the IBC Conference next year!
