Satellite, Cellmux and Fiber; Alternatives to Ethernet

Suppose you’re tasked with producing a high-profile live event. Perhaps the location has Ethernet connectivity, but you also want a redundant connection in case the Ethernet goes down. Or perhaps the location doesn’t offer Ethernet. What are your options? 

That was the pitch for my article, Video for the Long Haul: Exploring Backhaul Options, which recently went live on the Streaming Media website. In it, you’ll learn:

  • How on-the-fly transcoding for live events has dramatically changed the typical workflow for live event production.
  • What 4G/LTE Cellmuxers are and what to look for in a system
  • Affordable options for satellite distribution
  • What fiber is and how it works

Overall, you’ll get a quick overview of transport options like satellite, fiber and cellmux, and will learn how they work and how much they cost.
