Television broadcast services offered:

Stellar's broadcast solutions begin with fixed or mobile contributions from point of origin.

Most commonly, a media company delivers content to one of the PoP's (Points of Presence) on our fiber-optic network. Such fiber feeds perform redundantly and guarantee the best signal regardless of weather conditions.

We also offer satellite links to contribute raw TV content from remote areas to our multiplexer, such as for Muvi TV in Africa. Here, we operate a remote headend in sub-Saharan Africa.

Distribution

Stellar offers solutions for Direct-to-Home (DTH) and Direct-to-Cable (DTC) broadcasts.

With advanced production and transmission technologies, Stellar can broadcast a wide range of material and formats for IP TV and OTT applications across a global network. Stellar leases full transponders to deliver content to large digital pay-TV distribution platforms.

At the moment we distribute 350TV channels on different DTH platforms and use our Ka-band antenna for distribution of TV content to Africa.

Playout Service

Stellar delivers fully-managed play-out services from an automated, state-of-the-art, high capacity facility with servers that enable you to expand the number of channels you wish to broadcast.

All servers perform redundantly and guarantee seamless switching in case of disturbances. If desired, we also offer live connections to other channels for your playout.

All playout channels are bundled on multiplex ready to be distributed via our 6.2 m antennas in Ka-band. Our Network Operation Centre in Huerth monitor the playout and returning feed 24/7.
