RRsat’s internet/OTT networks enable content uplink and delivery, free-to-air or encrypted, to a diverse global audience over DTH platforms or over the top of the Internet.
Programs to be streamed over the Internet may be encoded in a wide range of video and audio formats, including WMV-9, VC-1, H.264, H.263, WMA, AAC, MP3, Vorbis and more. Supported encapsulation formats include ASF, WMV, WMA, FLV and Flash, among others. Encoding is generally performed at one of the RRsat teleports. Content is delivered to distribution servers at POPs or ISPs via the private RRsat network at low bitrates. Distribution servers connect to the Internet and deliver the programs to end users or CDNs.
