[Via Satellite 09-11-2014] Hispasat is expanding its capacity and offerings with new connection points and coverage over its orbital position at 30 degrees west. The operator is increasing the number of shared digital platforms available on its fleet, which enable individual audiovisual channels to broadcast within digital multiplexes, sharing their carrier with other television channels. This means Hispasat clients may therefore derive benefit from all the power offered by its satellites’ transponders, despite the fact they do not occupy them completely.

According to the operator, this service will benefit smaller television channels seeking to distribute or broadcast audiovisual content without having to contract the full capacity of a transponder. The service enables them to broadcast at full power and use smaller antennae for reception within the coverage of Hispasat’s fleet, the operator says.

In order to set this service into motion, Hispasat has secured agreements with teleports RRsat, Overon and Telefónica Servicios Audiovisuales, all of which can be accessed from the company’s orbital position at 30 degrees west. This infrastructure is available under the connections offered by Hispasat satellites over Europe, America and North Africa, as well as under its transatlantic capacity.
