SES (Paris:SESG) (LuxX:SESG) and Red Bee Media has unveiled an
industry leading remote recording service for satellite reception
devices. SatRecord is a new satellite-based TV remote recording service
which will provide consumers with the flexibility of recording their
favourite TV programme via internet-connected devices such as PCs,
laptops, tablets or smartphones from wherever they may be.
Consumers will enter a request to record TV programmes using their PCs,
laptops, tablets or smartphones via an EPG (electronic programming
guide). The request is then sent over-the-air directly to their set-top
boxes enabled for SatRecord service.
“Driving innovation is key to increasing the competitive proposition of
satellite TV. By enabling consumers to record their favourite TV
programmes easily, the new SatRecord initiative will create stronger
user retention to satellite infrastructure. Together with leading
consumer electronics partners, we are again demonstrating our ability to
provide additional value to the satellite TV industry,” said Wilfried
Urner, Senior Vice President, Product Development and Management of SES.
Steve Plunkett, Chief Technology Officer of Red Bee Media, commented,
“We are proud to work with SES to develop this industry leading
solution. Red Bee Media is committed to delivering technical excellence,
innovation and cutting-edge solutions that help our clients and their
consumers to stay at the very forefront of the media revolution.
Together with SES, we look forward to establishing SatRecord as the
standard of choice.”
Visitors of the SES stand (Hall 1, Stand 1.B51) at IBC in Amsterdam will
be able to see prototype devices of SatRecord-enabled PVRs and record TV
programmes via satellite. SatRecord will become available on the first
satellite receivers in Germany in 2013 and will be offered later in
specific European countries.
