Es’hailSat, the Qatar Satellite Company, will be at the 20th Arab Radio and TV Festival being held on June 28th – 30th in Culture City in Tunis. The annual festival, organised by Arab States Broadcasting Union (ASBU), aims to contribute to the development of Arab radio and television production, enhance its quality and promote innovative and meaningful trends in the industry.
Es’hailSat will be showcasing Es’hail-1, Es’hail-2 and new state of the art teleport. Es’hail-1 and Es’hail-2 are currently transmitting high quality, premium DTH television content from the 25.5°/26° E hotspot. In addition to providing transmission and expansion opportunities for established news and sports channels, Es’hailSat supports niche channels to launch their services within the region.
Es’hailSat’s new teleport which became commercially operational in Q1 of 2019, provide customers with secure and independent satellite transmission. The facility supports satellite TT&C and capacity management together with a wide range of services such as uplink, downlink, multiplexing, encoding, playout and other value added services. The high-tech teleport will also provide back-up studios for TV channels and serve as a disaster recovery facility for customers.
Ali Al Kuwari, President and CEO of Es’hailSat, said: “The Arab Radio and TV Festival gives us the right platform to engage with customers and partners. With the new satellite and teleport operating successfully, we see this festival as an important element in our strategy to attract customers from across the region who value broadcasting independence and high quality of service, to launch their services with Es’hailSat”.
