Media Networks recently organised a new edition of its direct-to-home (DTH) workshop in Peru's capital Lima to promote the installations of its satellite hub among Latin American pay-TV operators.

The meeting gathered many clients of Media Network's wholesale service and its main technological partners. Chile's Entel, Brazil's CTBC, Unotel, Reditel and Superitelcom and Ecuador's CNT, VGL and Univisa, among others, visited the regional network operations centre.

During the workshop, participants experienced UltraHD TV formats, second-screen and over-the-top (OTT) services and new subscriber communication channels. Some of the latest developments in set-top box (STB) technology were also presented.

In addition to pay-TV operators, Media Networks partners including Hispasat, Thomson, Nagra, Intraway, Broadcom, ST, Mstar, Jizhou, Echostar, Easy Digital, Sagemcom, SmartDTV, Kaon and Observa Telecom assisted in the event.

"The pay-TV service is an essential element in our clients' offers, which is why we try to improve our relationship with them in order to become strategic partners," said Javier Izquierdo, Media Networks' director for wholesaler operations. "We also work closely with our technological partners to keep our clients up-to-date."
