Business description: SkyStream Networks® provides IP video delivery platforms that enables service providers to transform their business. With SkyStream products, they can better manage their existing services and generate new revenues from broadcast TV, movies on demand and multimedia. By taking IP closer to the edge, SkyStream’s software and hardware products dramatically lower costs in service delivery and optimize video delivery in any network. Mediaplex ™ is the industry’s first all-inclusive video delivery platform for telecommunications carriers, satellite service providers and cable operators to transport video services over their existing networks. Mediaplex is a scalable, chassis-based video headend system that allows the operator to deploy multi-channel video services cost effectively over satellite, cable, and IP. With Mediaplex, service providers can double revenue streams with new video services, while cutting capital and operational expenses by 40%. SkyStream’s Source Media Routers (SMRs) enable satellite providers and digital television broadcasters to encapsulate IP content into an MPEG-2 video stream, allowing them to use their existing video network to deliver advanced video and data services.
