Media Broadcast Satellite Launches New Services Aboard Hispasat 30 Degrees West

A new DVB-S2 platform with new and extended services has been launched on Hispasat at the 30 degrees West slot by Media Broadcast Satellite GmbH to address the B2B market in Europe.

Announced at IBC2016 in Amsterdam, the agreement was completed by the company with the Hispasat Group, a leader of distribution of Spanish and Portuguese content. With this additional orbital position, Media Broadcast Satellite complements their existing B2B business with a new and independent high-throughput platform in DVB-S2 standard.

This marks a further step to guarantee a wide and satellite operator-neutral portfolio of satellite services to customers. In combination with the DVB- and IP-platforms, with their encryption and playout technology, Media Broadcast Satellite is able to provide tailor made distribution solutions to satisfy the individual needs of the customers in this growing market. The heart of the new platform is located at Media Broadcast Satellite´s own teleport in Usingen (Germany, close to Frankfurt/Main), which offers outstanding security and reliability standards with the highest levels of connectivity.

According to Christian Fleischhauer, the Managing Director at Media Broadcast Satellite GmbH, this highly competitive video and data distribution platform on Hispasat 30 degrees West will enable customers to deliver content within the selected footprint with outstanding conditions and performance.
