V-Nova teams with D-Orbit and Unibap to demonstrate VC-6 for on-orbit satellite imagery acceleration

V-Nova, a leading provider of video compression solutions today announced that their SMPTE VC-6 ST 2117 data coding standard has teamed up with D-Orbit, experts in the field of in-orbit transportation, in partnership with intelligent automation specialists Unibap, to demonstrate next generation hyper-spectral imaging from Polar orbit. VC-6 high-performance AI-powered software library will be integrated into Unibap’s SpaceCloud® computing platform onboard a satellite scheduled for launch in Q2 2021.

Unibap is supported by the European Space Agency and is partnered with telecommunications software developer ENEA and launch partner D-Orbit. Together with V-Nova, they will demonstrate compression methods and algorithms and evaluate alongside Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems (CCSDS) standards for emerging data-driven commercial services from space.

Time is critical to transmit images back to earth since the satellite is small, operates in a low orbit and is only visible to the earth station for a very short period. VC-6 optimizes the use of contended downlinks by progressively downloading high quality (even lossless) lower resolutions, allowing early access of images to the user, then providing higher resolutions with no redundant data until the full resolution is available. Alternatively, if a Region of Interest (RoI) of the image is required, only the high resolution of the RoI is downloaded. All these actions can be automated by computer vision on the ground, working in tandem with computer vision algorithms.

Guido Meardi, CEO and Co-founder, V-Nova said, “This extremely important and exciting project highlights the diversity of high-tech industries which V-Nova is able to help innovate. The fact that VC-6 is able to prioritize transmission of sections of an image in high-resolution is a big advantage since it means the platform need only invest resources into the precise parts of the image that are required at any time. The majority of uses of the imagery from these missions is for scientific use requiring lossless encoding. Being able to compress with low complexity and accelerate the download will allow space systems to become more agile. V-Nova is proud to work with D-Orbit and Unibap towards the development of more efficient satellite imagery systems.”

Dr. Fredrik Bruhn, Chief evangelist, and board member, Unibap, said, “We are very pleased to be the first to demonstrate VC-6 on SpaceCloud in orbit. We will upload additional SpaceCloud applications and experiments throughout the mission lifetime to open up the business potential of in-space data processing.”

Simon Reid, D-Orbit UK COO said, ”D-Orbit’s ION Satellite Carrier provides unique opportunties to demonstrate new technologies – in this case working with V-Nova and Unibap to evaluate performance of VC-6 compression in a real on-orbit environment. Cloud/AI enabled image processing is an important element in the range of On-Orbit services that D-Orbit will offer to customers”.

V-Nova’s VC-6 technology will be deployed into Unibap’s SpaceCloud solution and integrated into D-Orbit’s ION SCV Dauntless David spacecraft which is scheduled for launch in June 2021.

About D-Orbit

D-Orbit is a market leader in the space logistics and transportation services industry with a track record of space-proven technologies and successful missions.

Founded in 2011, before the dawn of the New Space market, D-Orbit is the first company addressing the logistics needs of the space market. ION Satellite Carrier, for example, is a space vehicle that can transport satellites in orbit and release them individually into distinct orbital slots, reducing the time from launch to operations by up to 85% and the launch costs of an entire satellite constellation by up to 40%. ION can also accommodate multiple third-party payloads like innovative technologies developed by startups, experiments from research entities, and instruments from traditional space companies requiring a test in orbit.

D-Orbit is a space infrastructure pioneer with offices in Italy, Portugal, UK, and the US; its commitment to pursuing business models that are profitable, friendly for the environment, and socially beneficial, led to D-Orbit becoming the first certified B-Corp space company in the world.

TV Globo Transitions from ScheduALL to Xytech and rsquo;s MediaPulse Cloud

In 2019, free-to-air, Brazilian television network TV Globo launched UMASO GLOBO, the unification of five companies in the TV Globo group. As part of the unification strategy, TV Globo aimed to optimize all of its application portfolios. One of the most important transformational project for the broadcaster wasthe consolidation of its existing planning and resource management solutions. With cloud architecture as a key driver, TV Globo selected Xytech’s MediaPulse Managed Cloud to unify its planning, resource and billing solutions. This project upgraded their ScheduALL system. Xytech acquired ScheduALL in April of 2021, and TV Globo is the first major broadcaster to undergo the upgrade process to MediaPulse.

One monitor to fit all: new multiviewing tool combines flexibility and usability Posted: 19/05/2022
One monitor to fit all: new multiviewing tool combines flexibility and usability

With G&D’s new PersonalWorkplace-Controller, the KVM experts unite the best of multiviewing and KVM: Displaying, arranging, and operating multiple sources on one monitor. This way, each user will be able to individually design their own workstation and operate it with just one mouse and one keyboard. Especially in critical environments, it is extremely important to keep an overview of all processes. But instead of having to use a separate monitor for each process, the PersonalWorkplace-Controller now allows multiple video signals to be displayed on just one large monitor or multiple displays. In addition to getting a clearly arranged overview of all processes, users can simultaneously and flexibly access all the data needed. Displaying multiple computer sources in real time on one large monitor, and thus providing latency-free operation of multiple computers from a single console facilitates work processes immensely.
