The Project

  • eurosport Transmissions Management software

    To provide a single interface to control all incoming satellite signals.

  • To facilitate and to secure the reception of satellite signals.

  • To provide a customised interface to suit Eurosport's needs.

NETIA solution

  • NETIA's solution is used to select the satellite from which there will be an incoming signal.

  • NETIA's solution indicates which satellite dishes are available to access the satellite.

  • If the satellite dish is motorised the software positions it automatically to the correct satellite.

  • The software is used to select one or more IRDs to decode the signal. The radio frequency grid automatically switches the satellite dish to the selected IRDs.

  • NETIA's solution is also used to set the parameters for the selected IRDs.

  • After validation the signal is made available within Eurosport as a serial digital interface.

Product Benefits
