Permanent distribution platforms
Permanent distribution platforms allow the distribution of TV channel signal from the headquarter to head-ends and satellite distribution platforms. Our satellite network provides several different options between encoding and modulation standards. We predominantly use DVB S2 modulation and MPEG4 H264 encoding, however more recently, we have moved to more efficient methods of multi distribution satellite delivery, building NS3 multiplexes over Europe, Asia and the Americas.
The EBU has three network operations centres across the globe. These are located in Geneva, Washington DC and Singapore. Each NOC is equipped to fully manage from end to end any transmission in the network. They all support each other simultaneously to ensure smooth operations. Our main disaster recovery site for NOC operations is located in Leuk, Switzerland. In the case of catastrophic failure at our main NOC in Geneva, our staff in Leuk are equipped to fully take over operations.
