Satellite Media application is the main space downstream activity. After more than 50 years of growth, driven by successful Broadcast satellites in GEO, Satellite Media market trend is today stagnant or in slow decrease. This downturn comes from new entrants platforms delivering their Media services, mainly Video On Demand, using Public Internet in Over The Top. These new Media services over Internet require high bandwidth, low latency, high quality capabilities with bidirectional links, for interactivity and metrics collection. More actors are now delivering their services in dual by satellite and over Internet in OTT generating additional costs. In parallel, GEO satellites evolve to High Throughput Satellites, providing more bandwidth and bidirectional links to answer this evolution but latency stays high. With LEO constellations low latency capabilities, satellite could stay preferred choice for service providers.
The project evaluates if a paradigm shift can take place by using the new planned LEO constellations to replace the traditional GEO communication satellites. New constellations technical and economic characteristics will be compared with current video services requirements. In case such replacement is considered feasible, a focus will be placed on how such shift will occur in the market for satellite operators and Media content providers.
