SES is launching a new dedicated sports and live content satellite delivery platform in Europe and the MENA region.
The platform uses the latest DVBS2x modulation, enabling media rights holders and authorised feed takers to enjoy high throughput, boosted network efficiency, flexibility and security, said the company.
It will support broadcasters, sports leagues, national and international sports associations, and sports rights holders transmitting major sporting events taking place globally, including winter sports and motor sports content later this year.
“With sports and live events resurging after the last two years, we have seen an ever-growing need to ensure that our partners are able to deliver their key sports content to fans reliably and in the highest picture quality possible,” said Michele Gosetti, head of sales, sports and events at SES.
“This is the first time SES has launched a platform dedicated for sports and events content over Europe and the MENA region and affirms our commitment to our sports and events customers and partners. This, coupled with our entire geostationary fleet, fibre and IP infrastructure, will enable us to continue to reach the widest audiences possible.”
