Eutelsat S.A. Key Developments

Crystal TV Enters 10-Year Agreement with Eutelsat

Crystal TV has signed a 10-year contract with Eutelsat for capacity on the Eutelsat 16A satellite. Until now, Crystal TV conducted broadcasts through terrestrial means, but was only able to reach Ghana's main urban areas in Accra, the Ashanti Region and parts of the country's Eastern and Central regions. Using Eutelsat 16A's high-power Sub-Saharan African footprint, the company can now broadcast its Free-to-Air (FTA) and Pay-TV channels across the entire country of Ghana.

Nilesat Signs Capacity Deal on Upcoming Eutelsat 8 West B Satellite

Nilesat has leased multiple transponders on Eutelsat 8 West B, slated to launch in mid-2015. The deal will expand Nilesat's operational flexibility and improve signal integrity for client broadcasters in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Currently Nilesat uses capacity on Eutelsat 8 West C. Once Eutelsat 8 West B is placed in orbit, the company will switch services entirely to the new satellite. Eutelsat has three satellites at 7/8 degrees west, and Nilesat two, optimized for Direct-to-Home (DTH) broadcasts. Together the companies broadcast more than 1,000 TV channels to more than 52 million homes from this orbital location, with coverage spanning from Morocco to the Persian Gulf.

Eutelsat Launches UHD TV Demo Channel with Thomson in APAC

Eutelsat announced that it is launching an Ultra High Definition (UHD) demonstration channel for Southeast Asia and Australia, using the ViBE VS7000 multi-screen video system and Sapphire MPEG stream server from Thomson Video Networks. Broadcast via the Eutelsat 70B satellite, the demo channel will leverage HEVC capabilities of the Thomson Video Networks services to provide a rich UHDTV picture at up to 50 FPS and in 10-bit color.
