The Middle Eastern broadcast community is increasingly turning to 360 Systems’ Image Servers and 2470 Broadcast Time Delay to meet escalating demand for satellite TV broadcasting in the Middle East, a market that is predicted to double by 2010.
There are currently nine 360 Systems Image Servers in use at Noorsat, a Bahrain-based satellite provider that transmits eight pay-TV and free-to-air (FTA) services, carrying more than 100 TV channels on its three direct-to-home satellites reaching the Middle East and Europe.
Three Image Servers handle playout at Samacom, a vertically integrated satellite services provider in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, that operates several digital direct-to-home platforms.
Middle Eastern satellite providers also use 360 Systems’ 2470 Broadcast Time Delay units to re-broadcast to different time zones with four 2470 Delays transmitting time-delayed programming for Orbit Communications.
