Microspace’s VELOCITY service is an economical and reliable way of delivering video, data or audio content to many locations at a low, fixed monthly cost. VELOCITY utilizes small inexpensive satellite receiving antennas and digital receivers to collect the content at each remote location. The service is fully addressable and has a high level of security.
IP Multicast is an extension of Internet Protocol that allows simultaneous one-to-many distributions of IP Data. IP Multicast, coupled with Microspace’s VELOCITY, provides a reliable, high bandwidth conduit for streaming video or multimedia file delivery. The technology dramatically conserves bandwidth requirements for Microspace clients. Terrestrial networks typically utilize unicast technology which not only requires more bandwidth but slows down the delivery of content to the remote sites.
MPEG stands for Motion Picture Experts Group, which is the industry standard for transmitting digital video and sound in a compressed format, therefore using less bandwidth than the traditional analog methods. MPEG is the de-facto standard in the digital TV world. Microspace’s VELOCITY is fully MPEG compliant, thus insuring a high quality of service.
DVB stands for Digital Video Broadcast, a standard based on MPEG-2 video, data and audio which can be transmitted via satellite. Microspace’s VELOCITY is DVB compliant. As a result, you have many options for receive site hardware. No proprietary equipment requirements to be concerned with.
Yes, AMC-1 reaches Alaska and Hawaii as well as the lower 48 states. We can also reach parts of Mexico, Canada and the Caribbean. Microspace also offers its VELOCITY service into Europe and Latin America.
Microspace understands that many networks benefit from the strength of satellite delivery combined with internet or even cellular technology. Microspace does offer these “Hybrid” solutions and they are perfect fit for many applications.
