DTT & DTC for Broadcasters

Enabling instant network expansion

Our Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) and Direct to Cable (DTC) signal feeding solutions allow you to cost-effectively expand your network to serve high-quality linear content to even the most distant locations—without investing in additional infrastructure.

As Audience Demand Grows for Broadcast Content, So Does the Need to Aggregate Top-Quality Content

Keeping up with viewer demand is increasingly important for broadcasters as audiences have more time to watch content on their chosen screen or device. Traditional linear TV, live news and sports content is still relevant and popular, but viewers are increasingly dedicating a higher percentage of their viewing time to on-demand OTT and pay-TV services.

Broadcasters need to constantly increase the quality and variety of their content while launching innovative new services with minimal costs and resources. With increased competition, this is essential to maintain their viewers’ satisfaction and increase viewership worldwide. Content aggregation plays a key role in this. Broadcasters need to add to video content to their portfolio by aggregating content from many sources, giving their customers more choice and viewing pleasure. By also making these available on all types of screens in high video-quality, the broadcaster guarantees customer satisfaction in a fluid and ever-changing market.

Cost-effectively expand your network to serve high-quality linear content

Yet, the lack of terrestrial connectivity and infrastructure in hard-to-reach areas—like rural villages and remote islands—impedes your quest to offer nationwide coverage. Our Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) and Direct to Cable (DTC) signal feeding solutions allow you to cost-effectively expand your network to serve high-quality linear content to even the most distant locations—without investing in additional infrastructure.

We ensure you can extend your cable or terrestrial TV service to entire populations—right from day one. We enable streamlined delivery of bandwidth-heavy HD content into your networks—so viewers everywhere can enjoy immersive linear viewing experiences. And our worldwide network of teleports and infrastructure allows us to quickly acquire new channels when needed—be it an Ultra HD nature and wildlife channel, or a live news channel specific to your region.

To ensure you can address any gaps in your DTT or cable TV coverage, we provide you with access to a hybrid distribution solution—combining DTT or cable TV video distribution with a direct-to-home (DTH) solution so you can reach areas that lie beyond the reach of terrestrial connectivity. For a hybrid DTT/DTH or DTC/DTH network, a channel transmitted once via satellite is fed into various networks—DTH, cable head-ends, or DTT towers—allowing you to reach millions of viewers at the same time.
