This standard describes a new communication protocol for the distribution of satellite signals onto IP networks. This technology concept is commonly referred to as SAT>IP. It effectively translates TV signals, received from satellites in the DVB-S and DVB-S2 formats and supplied in the first intermediate frequency range (1st IF range), into signals for use on internet-based devices in the IP world. This technology enables the reception of satellite TV on devices that do not have an integrated satellite receiver. Satellite signals can thus be transported via every IP infrastructure with or without cable. This way, the entire "satellite household" can be provided with TV and sound radio programmes on tablets, PCs, laptops, smart phones, connected TVs, game consoles and media players. The control protocol as well as the media transport are specified. The responsible committee is DKE/K 735 "Kabelnetze und Antennen für Fernsehsignale, Tonsignale und interaktive Dienste" ("Cable networks for television signals, sound signals and interactive services") of the DKE (German Commission for Electrical, Electronic and Information Technologies) at DIN and VDE.
