SES has signed a new video deal in the Indonesian market, one of Asia’s largest broadcast markets. The operator announced Sept. 21 that Indonesian entertainment network operator Mola will use SES’s 360 Unified Media Platform to bolster its over-the-top (OTT) content services across Indonesia and the wider Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.

Mola will leverage the web-based SES 360 for an end-to-end orchestration of content management and distribution services including formatting, processing and delivering video-on-demand content to a wide variety of platforms with the required metadata.

This new agreement builds on a pre-existing relationship with Mola established in 2017 to support increasing demand in Indonesia for live football coverage. Since January 2020, SES has supported Mola in broadcasting nearly 6,000 events, totalling more than 17,350 hours of signal acquisition and close to 3,000 hours inserted live into Mola’s channels.

“We are excited to be strengthening our partnership with SES, especially as demand for OTT content peaks. SES has proven to be a reliable partner, with its expansive technology infrastructure and dedicated support team. By working directly with them now, we can better look into jointly delivering enhanced viewing experiences for our audiences on a pan-regional level,” Ching Ping Lee, Mola CTO, said in a statement.
