Satellite transmission and reception
Teleport of terrestrial programming to a satellite or reception of a satellite signal for uninterrupted terrestrial transmission.
We transmit terrestrial television and radio programming to Eutelsat 16A from our Satellite Centre at Deanovec.
Using our PlayOut Max and HeadEnd Max, we can convert television and radio programming from other sources (OTT, IP/TV, Cable or HTTP stream) to a DVB-S signal and transmit it to a satellite.
The content that we broadcast by satellite can be received downstream and forwarded for broadcasting via terrestrial signal (DVB-T2 or DAB+ for digital radio) or, as needed, to OTT, IP/TV or cable distribution.
Transmission to Eutelsat 16A is intended for so-called DTH (Direct-to-Home) distribution, i.e., for direct distribution to end-users and distribution to cable distributers.
From OIV’s Satellite and Multimedia Centre, equipped with 10 satellite transmission stations with dishes ranging from 2.4 to 7.6 m in diameter and over 20 satellite receiver dishes with diameters of 3.7 m and 2.4 m and with automated de-icing systems installed, we can transmit television and radio programming to any satellite visible from Croatian territory.
Broadcasting to satellites not visible from Croatia’s territory (e.g., satellites meant to cover the Americas or Australia) can be done through cooperation with our partners.
Uncoded (free-to-air) radio and television programming can be received by any DVB-S MPEG4 receiver, while coded content requires a DVB-S MPEG4 receiver with a built-in Viaccess decoder module and a decoder card from the relevant television broadcaster.
