RRsat Launches Platform on Hispasat 1E
RRsat Global Communications Network has implemented its new multi-carrier per-channel platform on Hispasat’s 1E satellite at 30 degrees West, RRsat announced April 7.
The platform will cater specifically to Latin America, using the downlink, uplink, space segment and playout services from RRsat’s playout center in Hawley, Pa. RRsat will broadcast content in SD, HD, and 3-D formats to viewers in Latin America capable of receiving digital television through DTH broadcasting and to digital terrestrial television operators, DBS operators and cable headends.
"RRsat recognizes that Latin America is the next great frontier in content broadcasting. We have always given particular focus to this region, but now with our new platform and connection to Hispasat, we are able to increase these efforts, not only in providing content to Latin America, but also in distributing the wealth of Latin American content to other parts of the world," RRsat spokesman Lior Rival said in a statement.
