RRsat Presents end-to-end broadcasting solutions for African market

September 12, 2013

RRsat Global Communications Network, a provider of comprehensive digital content management and global distribution services to the television and radio broadcasting industry, has introduced two valuable solutions for broadcasters and media companies seeking to reach households in the African market. The first solution, which utilises RRsat’s dedicated neighborhood for Christian and ethnic channels on the Amos 5 platform, has already grown to include four Christian channels. The second solution, which delivers high-quality channels across the continent, utilises the RRsat’s AFRICASAT 1a platform positioned at 46.0˚E. RRsat solutions for the African market combine each of two outstanding RRsat platforms with its comprehensive playout and content management services.

Channels that have joined the dedicated Christian bouquet on the Amos 5 platform include Bride TV, Fortis TV, Calvary Network International (CNI) and RTV, which RRsat has recently begun to distribute across the African continent. With its strong neighborhood of channels and Pan-African footprint, the dedicated platform is the preferred solution for delivering the Good Word across Africa.

Leading entertainment and media companies delivering premium content to the African market via the RRsat AFRICASAT 1a platform include Fox International Channels’ National Geographic, Nat Geo Wild and Voyage.

“We welcome Bride TV, Fortis TV, RTV and CNI to the family of over 50 Christian channels that RRsat delivers to dedicated viewers of Christian content throughout the world,” said Lior Rival, Chief Commercial Officer of RRsat. “We are proud to offer professional broadcasting solutions for every broadcaster seeking to deliver high quality premium content to households across Africa, whether it is an ethnic channel or a major broadcaster.”
