    1. Astra is a professional software to organize Digital Broadcasting Service for TV operators and broadcasters, internet service providers, hotels, etc. Astra is an acronym for "Advanced Streaming Application".

    2. DVBStreamer is an console based application to stream DVB/ATSC service(s) over UDP or to a file. It is more that just an app to stream AV though and feature a simple plugin architecture to allow more features to be added.

    3. DVBlast is written to be the core of a custom IRD, CID, or ASI gateway, based on a PC with a Linux-supported card. It is very lightweight and stable, designed for 24/7 operation.
