Intelsat has announced that Romantis, a global provider of satellite communication services, has secured services on Intelsat 33e to enhance its Occasional Use (OU) services to broadcasters in Russia and the CIS region.
Intelsat 33e, the second satellite in the Intelsat EpicNG platform, operates at 60° East and delivers high-throughput services for Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. This enables Romantis to provide higher performance, improved availability and expanded coverage for its OU customers operating in this region. Intelsat 33e’s powerful spot beams deliver greater throughput to smaller antennas, providing maximum quality and flexibility to Satellite News Gathering (SNG) professionals.
“Intelsat has been an essential part of media services for many years and enabled us to substantially expand our business and respond to our customers’ strong demand for premium broadcast services,” said Dmitry Belyaev, CEO, Russian subsidiary of Romantis Group. “We are transitioning our OU services to Intelsat 33e to take advantage of the higher level of service, greater flexibility and expand our service reach over a much greater geographic area. Intelsat 33e enables us to differentiate ourselves from competitors by delivering the high-quality content their viewers demand in a more cost-efficient manner.”
