Title (EN) METHOD OF AND SYSTEM FOR PROVIDING GEOGRAPHICALLY TARGETED BROADCAST SATELLITE SERVICE
(FR) PROCEDE ET SYSTEME PERMETTANT DE FOURNIR UN SERVICE DE RADIODIFFUSION PAR SATELLITES GEOGRAPHIQUEMENT CIBLE
Abstract:
(EN) A method of and system for providing local direct broadcast satellite service by transmitting a plurality of local programming packages. The satellite (13) transmits the local programming packages to a plurality of geographically separate local ground areas (1a-1d; 2a-2d; 3a-3d).
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé et un système permettant de fournir un service de radiodiffusion locale directe par satellites en transmettant plusieurs blocs locaux de programmation d'émissions. Le satellite (13) transmet les blocs locaux de programmation d'émissions vers plusieurs zones de surface locales séparées géographiquement (1a-1d; 2a-2d; 3a-3d).
