Sen streams 4K video from space

19.05.19

Sen announces that it has successfully demonstrated its 4K video streaming platform in orbit, hosted aboard a satellite manufactured by S. P. Korolev Rocket and Space Public Corporation Energia (“RSC Energia”).

Sen’s system is the world’s first 4K video streaming platform from a satellite.

The platform, which comprises six video cameras and the Sen Video Unit containing a computer system to operate the video cameras and process the video data, was designed, developed and built by Sen.

The platform has demonstrated successfully its capability of recording six 4K video streams simultaneously in order to provide information about the spacecraft. Sen’s video cameras can stream real-time 4K video from the spacecraft, and two of the cameras are robotically steerable to capture a range of views of the spacecraft and also to film wide angle imagery of Earth.

Charles Black, Founder & CEO of Sen, said “We’ve spent years planning and developing the technology to stream real-time 4K video from space, so it's a great achievement to have our first successful mission. The mission is our tech demonstration of the world’s first 4K video from a satellite and the world’s most powerful video platform ever to operate in space. This mission validates our core technology which will be deployed in future on both hosted cameras and our own satellites as Sen develops its business of streaming videos from space for the benefit of humanity.”

Employees of RSC Energia appreciate Sen for providing the 4K video system for the satellite, including moving cameras, and are happy with the opportunity to be the first to implement Sen’s innovative platform to acquire additional information about the health and operations of the satellite. RSC Energia is planning to use Sen’s video streaming platform on future spacecraft that are being developed.
