The airscreen Server is a fully compliant and certified SAT>IP Server with 4 tuners. The airscreen Server can receive up to 4 transponders and stream selected SD/HD TV & Radio programs to 4 Client devices over LAN/WLAN allowing users to watch live satellite TV on their tablets, smart phones, smart TVs, game consoles and connected video player devices with compatible software/application. The airscreen Server streams out programs that were selected by the SAT>IP Clients and maintains encryption (for pay-TV channels) intact. The airscreen Server features a DLNA/UPnP-compatible Server mode that allows DLNA/UPnP Client devices and applications (that are not SAT>IP compatible Clients) such as DLNA-compatible TVs or Media Players to access the Live satellite TV and Radio streams over the LAN/WLAN too. DLNA/UPnP Clients access and navigate through live TV programs using a channel list provided by the airscreen Server. The channel list can be edited/exported/imported through the device’s configuration and management menus which are accessible over a simple and intuitive web interface.

Through its built in DLNA/UPnP compatible server, the airscreen Server will soon be able to turn a connected USB drive into a network media share for the Client devices to access around the home or set as a local network PVR. The airscreen Server can be connected to the home LAN/WLAN router/access point over its Ethernet port via an Ethernet cable or through a HomePlug AV or PLC (Ethernet over power line) adaptors.

The airscreen Server was designed to support Unicable II LNBs and Multiswitches - an essential component of the Sat>IP eco-system - providing the most elegant and cost effective single cable distribution solution*. Using Unicable II LNB or Multiswitch enables a quick and simple upgrade of existing installations, allowing to install one or multiple airscreen Servers using an existing single coax drop from the dish antenna into the house/building. Unicable II LNBs and Multiswitches provide digital Channel Stacking of up to 32 user bands based on the latest full-band capture technology and the EN50607 standard.

The development of the SAT>IP protocol was led by SES-Astra for its customers who are seeking to benefit from the increasing popularity of tablet and smart phone devices and address the change in how viewers consume their TV content and their ultimate demand for TV anywhere on any screen. airscreen Server with DVB-C and DVB-T front ends are available as well.
