Recording / Catch-up TV

In addition to the satellite monitoring planned, the same platform enables us to log other channels of the Group, channels that we receive or deliver via a fiber optic link. Furthermore the solution proved to be a true Swiss Army knife thanks to a third dongle that allows us to encode, transcode, route video streams, broadcast, and more, when necessary.
