International Datacasting supports CAD $450,000 Refresh of U.S. Government Broadcast Network Head-End

Posted on September 21, 2015

Ottawa, ON, September 21st, 2015 – International Datacasting Corporation (TSX: IDC), a technology provider to the world’s premiere broadcasters, today announced a new order totaling over CAD $450,000 to support the US Government headend refresh of its secure worldwide satellite broadcast network. 

The broadcast network provides secure, high-speed, broadband IP connectivity as well as broadcast content delivery to US forces and government agencies in the field. As part of the headend refresh, IDC will supply a large number of IP Encapsulators 4000 (IPE-4000) to encapsulate IP data such that it can be delivered over satellite.

The IPE is a high-performance unit that is capable of encapsulating any kind of IP data at up to 200 Mbs such that it can be inserted into a broadcast network. The IPE is particularly ground-breaking as it supports opportunistic data insertion, that allows making use of unused bandwidth on a DVB or ATSC network to deliver the data as quickly and efficiently as possible.

“IDC is proud to support the expansion of this best-in-class worldwide satellite content distribution network.” said Steeve Huin, IDC’s Co-Chief Executive Officer. “It affirms our commitment to technical leadership in our products and solutions.”
