Tel Aviv: In mid-June, Satlink Communications with its satellite and fibre transmission facilities and the MTVS digital broadcast facility, joined forces in Tel Aviv to provide broadcasters with a one-stop service for productions and programming from Israel.
To achieve this both companies are co-locating digital equipment for ease of operation.
Step one has been for MTVS and Satlink to install fibre optic connectivity between their respective facilities allowing two way content delivery.
In addition, MTVS has co-located its transmission, fiber and satellite gateway at Satlink's premises, while Satlink has co-located its play out facilities at MTVS at the heart of Israel's broadcasting district in Habarzel Street, Tel Aviv.
What this means is that Satlink clients will now have access to the recently launched new automation (Harris D Series) system and archiving (Masstech digital archive technology) for nearline storage.
MTVS clients now have seamless access to Satlink uplinking to worldwide satellite distribution, achieved through parent company, Globecast Global satellite and fibre optic network for worldwide television broadcast distribution.
