Hosted Satellite Distribution using XDS - Shared Satellite Services
Hosted distribution on XDS is the most popular and efficient way to reach a large affiliate base with as many channels as desired. While maintaining your own uplink has been the most economical in the past, if you are on an old system like Comstream with potentially devastating outages just one or two equipment failures away, it may be worth your peace of mind to consider hosted distribution.
Your radio programming is sent to OMNi's Denver Network Operations Center using a backhual device of your choosing (for best results, we recommend a pair of APT Horizons with Surestream). Your content is then distributed to your affiliate base via C-Band or Ku-Band through our triple-redundant facility and impressive antenna farm. We specialize in X-Digital distribution, but we also have many happy clients utilizing the 2WCom platform. Save time and money by using only the space and services you need - you can contact our satellite service representative to see if our services are a good fit for your network.
Our MCPC service offers power, encoding, and transmission redundancy to keep your network up and running. We boast a 24/7/365 NOC staffed with XDS experts, ready to help you and your affiliates at any time of day or night.
