The objective of this activity is to demonstrate the feasibility of techniques and technologies that can significantly reduce the total cost of video content delivery via satellite to the end users while improving flexibility, service quality, and the users experience in a real time platform, representing realistic system scenarios. Targeted Improvements: The target gain is to demonstrate and quantify the performance gain of payload, system and ground component techniques that can together enable significant improvements (more than twofold) in the content delivery capacity of digital broadcasting satellites, in comparison to conventional state-of the art solutions. The goal is to demonstrate a combination of such techniques working together in a real-time platform (preferably taking advantage of the existing space assets), to deliver a higher capacity under a set of system constraints (such as available power and/or bandwidth).For the full description of this activity and up-to-date intended issue quarter/intended issue week information, please consult the ARTES website: http://artes.esa.int/artes-51/tenders
