SatLink Communications has opened a new HD playout centre in the heart of Tel Aviv’s broadcast district.
The playout centre is offering content management, digital archival, content localisation, disaster recovery and OTT services.
It was purchased from MTVS Studios, one of Israel’s leading television production facilities providers, and already delivers playout and content management services to Israeli and international customers such as Disney, NTV-MIR, ESPN and others.
David Hochner, SatLink’s CEO commented: “The new HD playout centre complements our current offerings and is part of our ongoing strategy to provide a ‘one stop shop’ for international broadcasters requiring high quality end-to-end production, content management, transmission and distribution solutions. The centre will allow both international and local broadcasters to reach viewers using a fast, reliable and proven solution and help channels entering new markets, such as the rapidly growing African, Eastern European and Asian regions, to create regionalised feeds and content.
The HD Playout centre is connected to SatLink’s state-of-the-art teleport facilities via fully redundant SDH based fibres from two different suppliers using different routes to offer global content distribution over satellite, fibre or IP communication channels.
