The 1st thing many people ask when shopping for a satellite vendor on is20 to start a TV channel in Africa is, what is the price per Mbps (you asking now what is Mbps right, stay with us we will explain) They equate Mbps as a measure of quality. What if we told you this is the biggest LIE sold yet?
HIGH Mbps DOES NOT EQUAL HIGH VISUAL QUALITY. ITS A LIE MADE BY SALES PEOPLE
Mbps is the measure of bandwidth sold that the Satellite TV channel occupies. Satellite bandwidth is sold per Mbps and this usually determines price of a channel traditionally.
So traditionally if you wanted a HIGH visual quality satellite TV channel you would need more Mbps and thus incur higher monthly bills. Thus it was accepted the higher the Mbps the higher quality a channel was.
With HD arriving everyone wanted a HD channel but HD requires more bandwidth and this explains why you see few HD channels on the Free to Air platforms on Is20 Satellite in Africa. Remember more Mbps means higher cost.
SO why did we say that people selling satellite TV channels by Mbps are lying when they sell?
Mbps is a measure of bandwidth and not visual quality!
Mbps by its self does not guarantee quality. What does however, is how the vendor uses and maximizes the bandwidth used. Purple Turtle are the leader in Africa FTA broadcasting when it comes to innovation in Africa. We started Mpeg4 FTA broadcasting in 2009 well before anyone else. When we did we were told “Mpeg4 will never catch on” and yet here we are many years later. We continued to learn and innovate while others laughed.
Over the years we have been able to optimize our clients channels to new levels of quality, taking their visual quality to higher levels so they REALLY stand out vs other channels. Many of our clients people believe are HD because of their visual quality and they are actually SD at SD prices.
BUT don’t take our world for it, take a look yourself and verify visually
|PURPLE TURTLE IS20 CHANNEL||POPULAR IS20 CHANNEL|
|< 1 Mbps||2.7 Mbps|
|3x Better Visual quality than Popular channel|
|3x Cheaper per month for 3x Extra quality than the Popular channel|
Don’t be distracted by people selling IS20 satellite space by Mbps as Mbps does not equal high visual quality if the vendor is not using it correctly. It is like you having the latest 5G phone you pay for but only have a 2G network around you. The 5G phone only performs at 2G even though you paid alot.
Technology has changed massively over the years and this has a major impact on how much more efficiently bandwidth can be used. Truthfully most will try sell you more Mbps because they make more money selling you more Mbps, they are bandwidth sellers. Ask them to show you what you get visually for the Mbps and compare apples with apples visually. Look at price vs quality and ignore distracting Mbps.
