January 8, 2018
Globecast has extended its partnership with SES for the premium TV distribution services it provides to Orange Romania using SES’s satellite capacity.
Under the multi-year extension announced by SES, Globecast will lease several transponders on ASTRA 5B at 31.5 degrees East to serve Orange Romania, which uses the capacity to broadcast 112 channels, of which 52 are in HD, using the DVB-S2 and MPEG-4 technical standards. Globecast manages the contribution, encryption and encoding for the entire TV package, as well as signal transport to the uplink facilities for ASTRA 5B.
“We’ve worked extensively with SES and this is another example of the benefits of this partnership for our customers. In such a competitive market, quality of service is an essential factor in determining success, and we are pleased to extend this specific part of the relationship,” said Biliana Pumpalovic, General Director of Globecast in Moscow.
