By signing new agreements with international telecom centres, Hispasat has reinforced and expanded its broadcasting services, launching broadcast platforms and increasing the coverage of its infrastructure.
hispasatcentreThe Spanish company is adding connection points and coverage over the 30º West orbital position, also increasing the number of shared digital platforms on its fleet. These platforms enable individual audiovisual channels to be broadcast within digital multiplexes, sharing their carrier with other television channels
The satellite service targets small TV networks, seeking to distribute or broadcast audiovisual content without having to contract the full capacity of a transponder.
In order to broaden its broadcasting service, Hispasat has secured several agreements with the telecom centres of RRsat, Overon and Telefónica Servicios Audiovisuales. This infrastructure is available under the connections offered by its satellites over Europe, America and North Africa, as well as under its transatlantic capacity. Indeed, HISPASAT continues to expand its service offer by deploying new interconnection and broadcast points placed in European capitals such as Madrid, London, Budapest or Sofia and Hawley (the US) and Tel Aviv.
Hispasat intends to offer a flexible service for broadcasters, whether directly to the user (DTH), indirectly by transporting their TV channel to cable head-ends or via terrestrial broadcast.
