Optibase announced the deployment of its encoding and streaming platforms by Antena 3, one of Spain’s largest broadcasting companies, for the distribution of news throughout Spain and correspondent offices worldwide including New York, Rome, Paris and London. Antena 3’s dozens of offices are all connected by a Native ATM network which is available at all times, creating an open link between regional offices and headquarters. The streaming system enables live delivery of news between production centers.
The offices are equipped with Optibase MPEG MovieMaker encoding boards and MPEG ComMotion streaming software which transmit broadcast quality video over the ATM network to a news operation center at Antena 3’s headquarters in Madrid.
Each office handles two types of footage: footage that is encoded into MPEG-2 format and stored for later transmission and footage that is encoded and transmitted live to headquarters. At the receiving end, Optibase’s VideoPlex Xpress and ComMotion Receiver decode the MPEG-2 videostream and maintain image quality.
