OU Flex

Enabling live experiences on multiple platforms

Live experiences are no longer confined to a single screen. During a breaking news story, viewers expect to be taken to the scene of the action as quickly as possible—whether they are in front of a television screen or browsing a social media feed on their mobile phones.

Sports fans demand access to high-definition (HD) and live 4K Ultra HD sports events, both at home and on the move. To meet viewer expectations, you need a solution that can handle multiple video formats for distribution on multiple platforms—even when mobile and terrestrial networks are congested or unavailable at the venue. OU Flex combines IP-based bi-directional satellite contribution links to help you deliver a superior live experience—from your venue to multiple screens.

Instead of a traditional one-way feed for video broadcast alone, OU Flex provides a two-way connection between the site and your studio—enabling quick exchange of information and video files between locations. Add an OU Flex modem to your SNG set-up to enable seamless, high-quality live broadcasting via traditional Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) links, as well as the ability to immediately handle IP formats—so you can feed live video content directly to social media and streaming platforms. This means you can successfully provide viewers with both an hour-long breaking news story on a linear channel, and a quick two-minute update on a social media platform—without compromising on quality.
