Transmission of multiple paths from an event is now a regular occurence.
The costs involved in retrieving signals from remote locations can now be balanced by the gains that can be made by having the additional material available.
Interactive services, or covering several simultaneous events at a sports event becomes extremely cost effective when it can be generated from one uplink.
Solo can offer, single path, dual path, fixed rate multiplexing of services for your events, and also statistical multiplexing.
Single path - An uplink transmits one
service. occupying 'x' amount of bandwidth (satellite space segment) on satellite - parameters are set to give a usable
bit rate that will not exceed the amount of bandwidth purchased, these parameters include a 'fixed cost' of getting any transmission on air.
Fixed Rate Multiplex
