Telespazio Commits to Driving More HD, Ultra-HD to Eutelsat’s Hotbird Satellites
[Via Satellite 10-20-2016] Telespazio, a global broadcast service provider, has formed a new agreement with Eutelsat to promote the growth of higher resolution video channels at the operator’s Hotbird video neighborhood. In addition to pursuing transmissions of standard digital platforms in first and Second Generation Digital Video Broadcast-Satellite (DVB-S and DVB-S2), Telespazio has committed to accelerating the move to High Definition and Ultra-HD from the video neighborhood.
Eutelsat’s cluster of three high-power Hotbird satellites at 13 degrees east provide coverage of Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. Together they deliver 1,000 channels in 40 languages to more than 135 million homes through Direct-to-Home (DTH) reception, cable, IP and Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) networks.
