Cygnus contribution solutions support both content providers and rightsholders in acquiring and sharing high value live content with broadcasters and network operators around the world.

Key Values

Meeting Changing Consumer Demands

Cygnus’ flexible processing solutions can be configured to provide resolutions from sub-SD all the way to 4K UHD/HDR, all from a single device, designed to provide the maximum possible flexibility for the highest possible return on investment.

Personalizing Content

Cygnus’ high density encoding solutions reduce the expense associated with acquiring and transmitting large amounts of content, enabling consumers to follow an auto race from inside the car of a favorite driver or view advertisements targeted to their own interests.

Evolving Transmission Requirements

Built-in satellite modulation and native IP capabilities (including ST 2110) are standard across Cygnus’ contribution portfolio, but the solutions also leverage cloud-based microservice and orchestration technologies to enable cloud based processing when desired.

Application view

Cygnus’ contribution solution supports content providers and rightsholders in securely managing and distributing high quality content from point of origin to broadcasters and network operators around the world.

  • Live content acquisition via satellite, IP or cloud
  • MPEG-2/MPEG-4 AVC/HEVC low latency encode
  • Up to UHD resolution
  • Dense encoding configurations for remote production
  • Secure transmissions using distributed processing techniques for ultimate flexibility
