The most important facts about the multi-service system

EUMETCast is a multi-service dissemination system based on multicast technology. It uses commercial telecommunication geostationary satellites using DVB standards.

Files are transferred via a dedicated communications line from EUMETSAT to the uplink facility. These files are transmitted to a geostationary communications satellite for broadcast to user receiving stations. Each receiving station decodes the signal and recreates the data/products.

A single reception station can receive any combination of the services provided on EUMETCast.
