NASA is using VBrick’s equipment 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.
NASA initially approached VBrick Systems in 2004 to upgrade its personal computer card-based video transmission technology to a more stable and scalable 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.
