SES and Red Bee Media have 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."
