Wallingford, Conn. – November 2, 2010 – IP video technology leader VBrick Systems today announced that the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is using its award-winning IP video streaming technology to broadcast video taken aboard the International Space Station to its entire network, and to the global community of space enthusiasts who follow the agency’s pursuits via NASA.gov.
NASA is using VBrick’s equipment as a reliable and highly secure video streaming solution to more efficiently broadcast the tremendous volume of video content generated aboard the space station to NASA employees on the ground, and to space fans the world over. VBrick’s technology allows virtually everyone on Earth to keep track of the fascinating work that NASA is doing every single day in space. Live mission coverage from the International Space Station is available at http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/
NASA initially tapped VBrick Systems in 2004 to upgrade its personal computer card-based video transmission technology to the more stable and scalable VBrick Systems platform. With VBrick video encoders on the ground at the Space Center in Houston, NASA can more easily communicate its many important scientific breakthroughs to a wider audience.
“We continue to marvel at the truly innovative applications that NASA is powering using our IP video streaming technology,” said Michael Rubin, Vice President of Marketing at VBrick. “We look forward to supporting NASA with the world’s most sophisticated, scalable and secure video technology as it continues its pioneering work on Earth and in space.”
