Realize Your Optimal Programming Vision

IntelsatOne® Prism

Today’s consumers have an insatiable appetite for TV Everywhere and over-the-top (OTT) content. The pressures of changing consumer viewing behavior means scaling and augmenting traditional business operations to ensure you provide programming across all platforms, devices and formats.

Media Distribution is Changing

Media distribution models are changing dramatically to address the new ways audiences are consuming content. This has caused programmers to scramble in order to find new alternative methods of delivering video content to consumers. To stay relevant, you’re looking to transition from facts-media-prismyour traditional media content delivery methods to a next generation network that will support the future of your business.

But how do you move forward? These shifts are costly. You need to navigate increased network complexity and invest in more bandwidth, hardware and software to make your platform available to more viewers. You want to innovate and tap into these new revenue streams, but with finite resources and high costs this can be extremely difficult to achieve.

IntelsatOne Prism in Action

Broadcast Network Connectivity
Your current broadcast network uses a typical segmented topology where distribution of programming, linear content exchange, satellite news gathering and data networking including files transfers are all operated independently with different manual workflows and network assets. It takes money, resources and time to maintain this type of network. And it’s getting harder to justify as the number of formats, last-mile networks
and consumer devices you need to support are increasing exponentially. Programming costs are rising, your traditional subscriber base is shrinking and your subscription and advertising revenues are suffering.
With IntelsatOne Prism, broadcasters can efficiently share bandwidth and network assets across multiple applications, such as full-time linear video distribution, non-linear video delivery, voice, Internet, OU and remote contribution. During times of bandwidth peaks, IntelsatOne Prism will allow you to seamlessly overflow from your full-time bandwidth to Intelsat OU capacity.
Fast Access Event Coverage
Executing live events requires an array of services including satellite uplink, production, satellite capacity for live video, telephone circuits for voice coordination and internet access. These traditionally come from a variety of vendors and local carriers that carry high and unpredictable costs, hit-or-miss performance standards, additional engineering expertise to support and often long pre-coordination times to order services.
With IntelsatOne Prism, content production companies can implement a simple, integrated “triple-play” multimedia transmission solution for special events that provides near instantaneous and automated access to all of these services while minimizing engineering resources on site. The results are impressive – reduced and predictable costs, minimal advance preparation time.
