the versatile data broadcasting system
SkyScraper provides point-to-multipoint DTV content distribution, with targeted point-to-point delivery. It's the most widely used datacasting system in North America, supporting all broadcast media, including terrestrial, cable, satellite, and IP multicast TV.
New distribution and revenue opportunities
Here are some of the many ways SkyScraper is used:
- Corporations distribute digital content to branch offices, stores, customers, and partners to support training, advertising, and information management.
- TV networks and station groups use satellite links to distribute ads and programs to affiliate and member stations, reducing costs and ensuring quality.
- Public TV stations use available DTV bandwidth to support their charter and deliver multimedia content for education, homeland security, and other services.
SkyScraper is a highly scalable and extensible system. Open interfaces and modular architecture provide an end-to-end environment for content distribution applications that can be adapted to any DTV network.
