August 12, 2014

RRsat Global Communications Network has confirmed the signing of a seven year agreement with Cisneros Media, one of the largest producers of Spanish-language content in the Americas, as well as the owner and operator of three pay-TV channels in the region through its Venevision Continental unit.

RRsat will provide Cisneros Media with full playout and global distribution services of their pay-TV channels – Venevision Plus, VmasTV and VePlusTV – for the enjoyment of the Latin American community. As business and operations expand, a new RRsat playout centre will be established at the Venevision Studios. The planned playout center will be housed at Cisneros Media’s Miami studios, one of South Florida’s largest and most prominent production facilities with over 120,000 square feet, encompassing six sound stages as well as post-production and office space.

“RRsat’s high standards and quality service enables us to exceed the growing necessities of our clients and the demands of our viewers for more variety of content, expanded reach, greater accessibility and viewing experience,” said Jonathan Blum, President of Cisneros Media. “They also offer us the capability of efficiently managing and maximising the potential of our content, greatly improving our workflow.”
