Wegener Corporation, through its subsidiary, Wegener Communications, Inc., designs, manufactures, and distributes satellite communications electronics equipment in the United States and internationally. The company provides digital video and audio solutions for broadcast television, radio, telco, private, and cable networks. It offers products for scheduling, management, and delivery of media content to various devices, including video screens, computers, and audio devices. Products The company’s products include iPump media servers, unity satellite receivers, compel network control and content management systems, Nielsen media research products, digital television (DTV) digital stream processors, third-party uplink products, and customized products. iPump Media Servers The iPump product line combines the features of its integrated receiver decoders (IRD) with media server functionality and IP router capabilities. The iPump receives and stores television, radio and other digital files from broadcast, cable and business network operations utilizing file-based broadcasting technology compared to traditional real-time linear broadcasts. File-based broadcasting technology allows network operators to store content at receive locations with an iPump and then play back the content locally either based on schedules or on-demand user selection. There are four models of the iPump that utilize file-based broadcasting technology. The iPump 6400 Professional Media Server is designed for broadcast television and private network customers. The iPump 6420 Audio Media Server is designed specifically to serve the needs of radio broadcasters. The iPump 562 and iPump 525 Enterprise Media Servers are designed specifically for private network and enterprise applications, such as digital signage. The iPump 562 and iPump 525 Media Servers support MPEG-4/h.264 video decoding for high definition and standard definition video. In addition, the iPump 562 supports digital video broadcast (DVB)-S2 satellite demodulation. The iPump 525 is designed specifically to support terrestrial content distribution and control. The company targets its core markets for the iPump product line. Within these markets, applications for the iPump products include digital signage, corporate communications, training/education, time-zone shifting, regional advertising insertion, and news distribution. Unity Receivers The Unity 552 is targeted to serve the needs of private and business television networks. The Unity 552 supports MPEG-2 and MPEG-4/h.264 video with high definition support and DVB-S and DVB-S2 demodulation. By upgrading to MPEG-4/h.264 video and DVB-S2 modulation, network operators can reduce their bandwidth utilization by approximately half. The Unity 551 utilizes MPEG-2 for video distribution and is also targeted for private and business television networks. The Unity 4600 receiver is a digital satellite receiver used primarily by program originators to distribute analog and digital programming. DVB-S2 satellite demodulation support is available on the product. The Unity 202 audio receiver is designed for business music providers. It allows users to select audio formats and offers audio storage for advertising insertion and disaster recovery. It is its second generation file-based broadcasting business music receiver. Compel Network Control Systems The company’s Compel Network Control System is used in networks worldwide to control approximately 100,000 receivers, and it features grouping and addressing controls that provide flexibility in network management. Receivers can be controlled as individual sites and as groups. Commands are synchronized with video and audio programming, which allows users to regionalize programming and blackout programming from nonsubscribers, as well as target commercials to subscribers. Compel network control systems include Compel for radio broadcasting and background music applications and Compel 2 for advanced content ingest, content management, digital signage, live, and file-based video applications. Compel option modules include Conditional Access for satellite-enabled broadcasts. Co
