Eutelsat Launches Cirrus Satellite-OTT Hybrid Solution

Eutelsat is launching Eutelsat Cirrus, a hybrid satellite-OTT delivery solution, which the company says will enable broadcasters to offer a flexible, seamless content experience across multiple screens. It will provide a turnkey content delivery solution via satellite and OTT to operators seeking to launch or upgrade their service.

Eutelsat Cirrus will provide satellite TV broadcasters with end-to-end video distribution combined with cloud-based service management. The platform will deliver live channel broadcasting, channel numbering, programme information and content security, plus subscriber and set-top box management.

A multi-screen offer will complement the traditional DTH broadcast service with simultaneous OTT streaming through a native hybrid platform. It will enable end-users to watch video content on devices such as mobile phones and tablets, access multiple programmes, record and rewind and view an array of programme information, while providing business rules management and usage reporting for Eutelsat’s broadcast customers.
