Q & A – David Pollack President & CEO, Spacecom

Has IBC come at a good time for the electronic media industry? Why?

This year we are promoting Spacecom’s role as an emerging global satellite operator. In early 2016, AMOS-6 is scheduled to launch to the 4W orbital position with HTS capabilities for broadband internet in Africa and Europe, including Western Europe, a new market for us. AMOS-5 offers coverage over Africa, while AMOS-4 provides services to Asia and Africa. The AMOS 4W ‘hot-spot’ covers Eastern/Central Europe and the Middle East providing clients with multi-regional coverage and multi-beam services.

What do you think are the key developments in, or threats to, your market sector at the current time?

On the broadcast side, we are expanding services to meet our DTH customers’ needs for more HDTV and increasing sports broadcasting.

Our broadband and telecom customers are also growing via more backhaul services alongside our new hybrid cellular-satellite solution. The AMOS brand is meeting customers’ needs around the globe as the industry continues pushing ahead with new technologies and services. Our close cooperation with DTH, broadcasters and telecom and communications operators ensures that their services are top notch. We are continuing to capitalise on new trends, like UHD TV, by expanding our offerings to enhance our clients’ values.

Why should delegates visit your stand at IBC?

Delegates will hear about the AMOS brand, Spacecom’s strategic programme and news about AMOS-6. Larger than AMOS-2 and AMOS-3 combined, AMOS-6’s new technologies will allow broadcasters and service providers to re-imagine business opportunities in data and broadcast services, including mass market broadband services (via HTS). As an emerging global satellite operator, we find that IBC is the place to meet existing and potential clients to further our connections.
