IP video technology provider VBrick Systems announced that the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) used its 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 government.
NASA is using VBrick's equipment as a secure video streaming solution to broadcast the 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 work that NASA is doing every single day in space.
NASA initially tapped VBrick in 2004 to upgrade its personal computer card-based video transmission technology to the VBrick platform. With VBrick video encoders on the ground at the Space Center in Houston, NASA can communicate its many important scientific breakthroughs to a wider audience.
"We continue to marvel at the applications that NASA is powering using our IP video streaming technology," said Michael Rubin, VP of Marketing at VBrick. "We look forward to supporting NASA with the video technology as it continues its pioneering work on Earth and in space."
