MODULAR VIDEO DISTRIBUTION

Offering a comprehensive user experience

With a rich choice of features, and offering a consistent multi-screen user experience, Eutelsat CIRRUS’ modular approach meets varying needs.

Turnkey DTH


A Turnkey DTH service provides end-to-end video distribution combined with cloud-based service management, enabling broadcasters to rapidly launch fully-managed TV services, delivering the highest image quality, with maximum audience reach. Bringing together the strengths of traditional satellite broadcasting with next-generation features, the fully integrated platform delivers an enriched viewer experience, with features including live channel broadcasting, channel numbering, comprehensive programme information, content security, subscriber management and a full range of white label set-top-boxes.

OTT Multiscreen

An OTT Multiscreen solution enables broadcasters to launch a fully-managed multiscreen TV package, available anywhere, in particular to reach expatriate audiences. The turnkey application for IP devices is available for iOS, Android, Android TV and browsers. A rich programme guide offers a modern content navigation experience.

Video-on-Demand

Video-on-Demand enables broadcasters to increase their end-user offer through their “long-tail” content catalogue. Programmes are presented with a modern user experience facilitating content discovery, and end-users can watch programmes at their convenience.

Catch-Up and Start-Over

Catch-up and start-over functionality give end-users access at any time to all linear content aired over the past seven days, or to re-start programmes currently airing. Sharp Playback is a unique AI-powered solution that helps broadcasters provide high-quality start-over and catch-up services, through real-time analysis and adjustment of actual TV programme start times.

Satellite Multiscreen

Satellite Multiscreen increases a broadcaster’s reach to mobile screens in areas where internet is not sufficient. Content multicast over satellite can be watched on IP devices, irrespective of the quality of the internet connection, enabling broadcasters to distribute content to all screens and regions, no matter how remote their audience.

ENHANCED FREE-TO-AIR VIEWING

Enabling a richer, simpler user experience

Reinventing content discovery for FTA satellite TV channels


For the free-to-air (FTA) ecosystem, the Eutelsat CIRRUS media platform brings a unique value, enabling broadcasters to target specific markets from Eutelsat’s video hotspots and engage with massive audiences. Channels are referenced in Eutelsat’s new FTA set-top-boxes, with prominent channel numbering for each relevant market, comprehensive programme information, content search and reminders, maximising the conversion of massive satellite reach into real TV audience. Unique features for the FTA world, such as a channel line-up that is regionalised and always up-to-date, and PVR functionality, give audiences an enhanced user experience with relevant content to watch.

Extending broadcaster engagement through companion screens


Designed to increase broadcaster engagement with their audiences, a mobile version of the Free-to-Air Programme Guide is also available on mobile devices. This app, Sat.tv, has already registered over one million downloads.

Sat.tv gives users extensive access to programme details in the HOTBIRD and 7/8° West channel line-ups, with options to browse by time, channel or type of content. Preferred content can be selected in a click, and personalised recommendations generated based on viewer tastes. Viewers can also share app content on their social media profiles. The user-friendly programme guide interface is available for viewers in five languages (English, French, Russian, Italian, Arabic).
