Briefly describe your facility: STN (Satellite Telecommunications Network) is a provider of solutions for broadcast over satellite. In addition to its cutting-edge facilities, STN is celebrated for its quality of services that include multiple solutions, satellites and platforms.
Expected tech trends: One of the top trends that I look forward to is the evolution of H.265 standard or High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), which is a video compression standard that is a successor to H.264/MPEG-4 AVC (Advanced Video Coding). I am particularly interested in the development progress of consumer-grade chips that will be put in the first generation of STBs and their price(s) since I believe that this will be the ultimate driver (or inhibitor) of 4K UHD (3840 pixels by 2160 lines ultra-high definition television). It will also be “fun” to see where the compression vendors are with both the encoders and their professional IRDs.
