Satellite operator Eutelsat and content delivery network (CDN) technologies provider Broadpeak have teamed up to launch a new platform that delivers satellite-based multiscreen video to connected devices. The new offer, dubbed Smartbeam, is designed to enable broadcasters and pay-TV operators to harness ubiquitous satellite coverage to broadcast video content in IP format, creating a network dedicated to IP-native terminals, including tablets and smartphones. SmartBeam works with any WiFi-enabled device, supporting instant channel change, DRM security, and low latency, said the partners.
