The IRD is the interface between a receiving satellite dish or antenna and is generally used for the reception feeds that are intended for re-broadcasting. IRD’s get signal from satellite or terrestrial antenna, both for Free to Air (FTA) and encrypted content. DVB-S/S2, DVB-T/T2 are both supported. These days, the output of the IRD is a digital format.


Encoding takes an analogue source content and converts it to a digital format. Encoders are often part of IRDs to covert analogue satellite signal to a digital format.


Transcoding takes an existing digital format and converts it to a different digital format, as is the case when you take the IP format from the IRD and convert it to an adaptive bitrate format such as HTTP-Live-Streaming (HLS).

Our Transcoding Solutions format linear content to multi-screen formats (TV and Mobile), in single, multiple or adaptive bit rates, aligned with the network or internet connection of you target markets.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Broadcasting refers to the technique of transmitting information, such as audio or video content, to a broad public audience. Traditionally done through radio and television, broadcasting now also encompasses digital channels such as the internet. The term can be used to denote both the method of transmission as well as the content itself.

Broadcasting typically refers to the distribution of audio or video content to a dispersed audience via any electronic mass communication medium, but primarily using the electromagnetic spectrum. The three main types of broadcasting are:


  1. Radio Broadcasting: This involves the transmission of audio content through radio waves to reach a wide audience. Radio broadcasting is typically done via AM and FM radio stations where listeners tune in with a receiver.
  2. Television Broadcasting: This includes the dissemination of content through television signals. It can be done through various mediums such as terrestrial television (over-the-air), satellite TV, and cable TV.

  3. Internet Broadcasting (Webcasting): This newer form of broadcasting involves streaming media where audio or video content is transmitted over the Internet. This can include live broadcasts (like live sports events) and on-demand services (such as Netflix).

An example of broadcasting is a national television network distributing daily news programs to viewers across the country via satellite and cable networks. Another example is a radio station broadcasting music and live interviews to listeners through FM and AM frequencies, or streaming the same content online to reach a global audience.

A broadcasting company operates by producing content, such as news, entertainment shows, and educational programs, and transmitting this content through radio waves, cable networks, or the internet to a large audience. These companies manage the operational aspects of content creation, scheduling, and distribution. They may also handle advertising, marketing, and regulatory compliance.

Broadcasting is a sector within the media and entertainment industry. It is primarily service-oriented, focusing on content delivery to a mass audience. This sector includes television and radio stations, satellite and cable companies, and increasingly, digital streaming services that offer diverse programming to meet the wide-ranging needs of the global audience.

Broadcasting on the internet, often called webcasting or streaming, involves sending live or pre-recorded audio and video content to users via the internet. Unlike traditional broadcasting, internet broadcasting can be interactive, allowing viewers to engage directly with content creators through comments, shares, and likes.

Broadcasting a message involves sending information, such as announcements or promotional material, to a wide audience through various broadcasting mediums like television, radio, or the internet. This can include anything from a public service announcement to a commercial ad, aiming to reach as many people as possible.

While both streaming and broadcasting involve the distribution of content to audiences, streaming usually refers to the transmission of content over the internet in real-time or on-demand, allowing for more personal interaction and viewing flexibility. Broadcasting, on the other hand, is traditionally tied to scheduled programs via radio or television networks and is less interactive.
