The OU Flex Ka- or Ku-Band service from SES combines the traditional DVB links with full-service IP connectivity.

At IBC, Sematron will be showing visitors what it says is a fast, low cost and simple way for any broadcaster or DSNG operator to access the benefits of the OU Flex platform.

The company’s recommendation is that prospective users should equip their SNG vehicles with a complete package from the company – roof mount, flyaway VSATs, man-portable terminals and so on – and Sematron’s OU Flex modem shelf (which includes an integrated Newtec Dialog modem) and WiFi router to allow multiple users to connect.

This comes ready for installation into any flight case or DSNG vehicle. 

Richer media content is ensured, according to Sematron, via bi-directional broadband links, with minimal infrastructure investment and low operating costs.

With tailored service packages for media communications, IP video streaming, social media and file transfer, Sematron says that its OU Flex shelf enables users to stream live video from sporting events, share content on social media platforms, transmit content into archives, and exchange large files between locations. Revenue can, the company says, be increased while saving time and costs using centralised production.
