Content Distribution – Application used for Multicasting
On Satellite Networks
Multicasting Using FAZZT Application by Newtec HUB
EgyptSat's flagship product, the Content Distribution Digital Delivery System, is a state-of-the-art broadcast system which can reliably deliver large files to authorized computers at thousands of remote sites. The off-the-shelf package will have you broadcasting in minutes. EgyptSat's powerful scripting tools and our extensive library of add-ons will quickly integrate Content Distribution with the rest of your system.
Behind the intuitive interface is the world's most sophisticated, powerful, and flexible data casting software. EgyptSat offers unmatched reliability for one-way broadcasting without a return link. The revolutionary Content Distribution Forward Error Correction algorithm eliminates the need for return links by reconstructing damaged files at the receiver, even after extended rain outages. No retransmissions necessary. Content Distribution is equally reliable in two-way environments.

An impressive list of powerful features, an extensible architecture, and a built-in scripting engine give Content Distribution unsurpassed flexibility. Content Distribution comes with an integrated archiving utility, compression capability, and embedded support for Internet transactions. Interactive Internet requests allow end-users to initiate transmissions from anywhere with any standard web browser. Batch processing tools and extensive scheduling capabilities provide complete automation. Hot Folders enable quick transfers; the publication database provides additional control. Use group management for selective delivery, and filtering for selective reception.
Easy integration with other systems EgyptSat uses all open standards. You can control the Content Distribution from anywhere through a web interface. Transfer the files from anywhere with FTP or other protocols. Content Distribution supports SNMP, handles CGI calls with built-in password management, and transmits over IP multicast, RS-422, or RS-232 networks. Switch satellite networks, transmitters and receivers, or operating systems, and your Content Distribution system remains unchanged. Content Distribution comes with an easy-to-use scripting engine with hundreds of powerful functions and over 100 sample scripts and templates to get you started.
Content Distribution Forward Error Correction*
It allows reliable one-way transmissions by using a proprietary mathematical algorithm to reconstruct damaged transmissions when they are received. This works on any file type, even for extended outages. Content Distribution technology also works on streams of live data. Send the data once, and only once. No costly retransmissions, power boosts, or return link are required. Content Distribution will save you time and money by ensuring that your data arrives intact despite adverse conditions that inevitably arise.
Content Distribution File Validation*
Verifies the file as reconstructed is identical to the file as sent. Compression. Compress files before sending to decrease needed bandwidth. Compression can be configured universally or on a per-transmission basis. Optimized retransmission*. If a return link is available and a file arrives at one or more receive sites too damaged to be reconstructed, Content Distribution will optimize retransmission of the missing data.
* Patented and other patents pending

Content database
Content Distribution maintains an internal database of content, along with meta-data information about the content.
Hot Folders
Directories can be configured to wait for files to be dropped in them, and immediately transmit the files over the satellite network with given transmission parameters.
Dynamic channels
Multiple channels of content, either files or streams or a combination of both can be multicast. The client can filter and tune among them. Channels can be permanent or temporary, set up and taken down on the fly.
Distribution Center for Content on Demand
Clients can directly subscribe to channels or streams available at the server, or order content through a searchable catalog.
Flow control
Integrated opportunistic bandwidth support with IP encapsulations allows Content Distribution to make use of the maximum available bandwidth.
Send multiple files concurrently; high priority files are sent first.
Transmission queue management
Multiple scheduling and queuing algorithm options allow added control over transmission priority.
Selective transmission
Send files only to select receive sites, if desired. Define groups of receive sites, or groups of groups, allow publishers to define their own groups, or tap into an existing user database using ODBC. Content Distribution's addressing scheme imposes no limit on the number of receive sites.
Selective reception
Remote users can choose which categories of files to receive using filters, or select files from a carousel. Carousels and category lists can be broadcast to all receive sites and updated.
Content Distribution can easily mirror FTP sites, web sites, or data banks.
The Packager utility wraps multiple files into a package. This package can later be transmitted, and will be unpackaged into the original directory tree upon arrival at the receive site. A script can be included which will run automatically at the receive site, processing the package in customizable ways. The Package includes a Windows graphical user interface, a console interface, dozens of options and a wide range of automation features. A UNIX version is also available.
Content Distribution Digital Recorder
It allows scheduled or spontaneous recording of incoming streams at the client, for later viewing or playback.
Transfer files over TCP/IP from one Content Distribution machine to another using ISDN, Internet, or modems.
Extensive, flexible logging functionality allows for easy tracking and reporting of system operations.
Full online help and 24/7 technical support available
Scripting Engine
Automate common maintenance tasks, build simple interactive applications, and easily integrate Content Distribution with your existing system using scripts. Scripts can be run on any Content Distribution PC and scheduled for any recurrence pattern. Content Distribution machines can run scripts on other Content Distribution machines, easing system integration and simplifying maintenance. Since scripting is integrated system-wide at a low level, every system function can be controlled through scripting.
For the Schedule files or packages which are going to be sent in the future. The graphical user interface allows an extensive variety of recurring transmission schedules to be programmed. Scripts can also be scheduled for execution. Scheduling can be configured through the user interface or through scripts.
Interactive Internet applications
Easily build messaging systems, video on demand, and files on demand systems, which can be controlled through any web browser, anywhere.
Centralized management
Receive sites can be controlled by the uplink site. The Server can run scripts at receive sites for configuration or maintenance, or upgrade Client software by simply sending one file.
Distributed Control
Control Content Distribution from the server, publisher, client, or any web browser.
Email support. Content Distribution supports the POP3 and SMTP standards, which allow the system to, for example, forward email to client computers, retrieve instructions via email, send emails upon receipt of files, or email a pager if an error occurs.
Open database support
Content Distribution can integrate with any enterprise database system through ODBC. Simple Content Distribution scripts can make arbitrary SQL calls, receiving instructions through a database or reporting back to one. FTP, SNMP, and CGI support. Configure Content Distribution to download files from any operating system with FTP, and transmit them over satellite. Use Content Distribution scripts as CGI processes, or configure Content Distribution to send SNMP traps.
Content Distribution software runs on Red Hat Linux and all 32-bit Windows platforms, including Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003. Content Distribution Client software is also available for Windows CE, other Linux distributions, FreeBSD, UnixWare, and Apple MAC OSX. Embedded support for Internet standards ensures that files can be downloaded for transmission from any computer on the Internet, and routed to any machine upon remote arrival. Content Distribution supports IP (including TCP, UDP, and IP Multicasting over IPv4 and IPv6), RS-422 and RS-232 standards. Mobility. Content Distribution clients can be PCs and/or handheld PDAs, with much of the capability similar across the network.
