Olympusat has launched 40+ channels on Choice Cable and Mediacom using OT Express, a point-to-point content delivery solution, enabling them to broadcast SD and HD Spanish-language content in the United States and Puerto Rico.

OT Express is a content distribution service that can help deliver large volumes of SD and HD content with lower bandwidth requirements compared to standard satellite technologies, Olympusat said. Operators can integrate their existing systems without any interruption to their current workflow through OT Express' advanced technology and convenient monitoring and management tools.

"Olympusat offers distributors flexible content solutions, as well as a rich suite of Spanish-language TV brands," said Nick Febrizio, senior vice president of distribution at Olympusat. "Through our leading content delivery solution, OT Express, Olympusat is able to provide our distributor partners with a unique and effective transport of Olympusat's content."

In addition, OT Express also offers cable providers the ability to use certified complementary components such as set-top boxes to bring 1080p HD video to customers via secure video distribution over remote sites.

"We are excited to help provide our partners with a solution that both enhances and manages their content allowing for advanced video delivery at a cost-effective rate," said Austin Powers, president of Olympusat Telecom. "In addition to offering OT Express as a solution for receiving Olympusat's content, the OT Express solution is available to any distributor and their respective content needs."

Olympusat plans on using OT Express in 2014 to launch additional networks throughout the United States and Latin America.
