EBU seals long-term leases with Eutelsat

March 14, 2012

The EBU, the world’s largest association of broadcasters, is consolidating its longstanding relationship with Eutelsat Communications with a multiple-transponder contract on two satellites. The renewal of four transponders on Eutelsat 7A (ex W3A) up to 2016 and the further renewal of four more transponders on Eutelsat 10A (ex W2A) will support the association’s network that serves 85 national media organisations in 56 countries in and around Europe.

The EBU is also validating the new-generation satellite newsgathering solution that Eutelsat has launched on its KA-SAT High Throughput Satellite. Called NewsSpotter, this IP service is designed to enable broadcasters to deliver more from the field at low cost, further diversifying live news reporting.
