August 31, 2022
Babeleye, the specialists in TV & entertainment metadata for video platforms, has announced that Eutelsat, the global satellite operator, has reconfirmed Babeleye as the supplier of metadata for its free to air content discovery platform Sat.tv
With Babeleye’s expertise and unique position in MEA, Eutelsat has lifted the user experience when finding content and improved the visibility of linear channels. Without any subscription costs and with no internet connection, viewers can consult an images-rich multi-lingual guide with content grouped per genre, from a myriad of linear channels. All data is provided over satellite through a Sat.tv Set Top Box, which is useful for TV viewers living in regions where home broadband Internet may be unreliable or unavailable.
Jean Luc Deroudilhe, SVP Advanced TV Services at Eutelsat, said: ”Babeleye has proven over the last years to be a trusted and efficient partner in feeding our Sat.tv platform with top quality data and images. They have shown agility in rapidly adapting to changing needs over time. Targeting currently 60 million homes on 7/8W orbital position, reliable metadata is paramount to the success of this project.”
“We are very pleased to continue providing Eutelsat with the high quality rich metadata needed to elevate the user experience and catering to the MENA viewer,” added Lasse Schmidt, Sales Director at Babeleye.
