Eutelsat launches satellite-OTT delivery solution for broadcasters

Eutelsat Communications is launching Eutelsat CIRRUS, a satellite-OTT delivery solution, enabling broadcasters to offer seamless content experience across multiple screens.
tvEutelsat CIRRUS will provide a turnkey content delivery solution via satellite and OTT to operators seeking to launch or upgrade their service.

The rapid deployment of video services, low operational costs, high image quality and consistent end-user experience are the main benefits.

This new service represents a further step for Eutelsat in the integration of satellite into the IP ecosystem through its dual offer of turnkey DTH services and OTT multiscreen delivery.

Eutelsat CIRRUS’ turnkey DTH service will provide satellite TV broadcasters with end-to-end video distribution combined with cloud-based service management. The platform will deliver better viewer experience through live channel broadcasting, channel numbering, programme information, content security, subscriber and set-top box management.

A multi-screen offer will enable users to watch video content on devices such as mobile phones and tablets, access multiple programmes, record and rewind, and view programme information, while providing business rules management and usage reporting for Eutelsat’s broadcast customers.

“Eutelsat CIRRUS reinforces our value proposition in the video segment, which is at the core of our business,” said Gerry O’Sullivan, executive vice president, Global TV and Video of Eutelsat.

“The launch of Eutelsat CIRRUS sits firmly within our broader strategy to reinforce and develop our core video vertical,” Rodolphe Belmer, CEO of Eutelsat, said.
