[SatNews] SkyVision Global Networks Ltd. has recently added broadcast services and engineering solutions to its diverse IP connectivity services and solutions portfolio—and has brought on board a new Senior Director to handle the firm's broadcast services division.
The increasing demand in Africa and the Middle East for DTH and IPTV services is overwhelming. Over the past several years, there has been a growing demand for reliable video solutions across many segments—including governments and broadcasters—wanting to cover national and international events such as the Africa Cup of Nations, the World Cup, African U-20 Championship and more.
Leveraging on its global MPLS network, extensive points of presence and vast teleport operations in the US, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and the comprehensive satellite coverage under its command, SkyVision offers broadcasters—and any client that needs to deliver video services—a one-stop-shop for contribution, distribution, IPTV, OTT, turnaround and occasional-use services. In addition to the broadcast services, SkyVision has also launched its engineering solutions specifically suited to satellite operators, such as TT&C, CSM, Satellite collocations and hosting services.
"Following the vast number of customers requesting broadcast services, we quickly took the steps needed to respond to their requirements. As this is a new domain to SkyVision, we saw it only fit to recruit a dedicated Senior Director, well experienced in the field of broadcast—Eyal Maimon is that individual, who is now SkyVision's Broadcast and Engineering Solutions Director and brings more than 17 years of hands on technical and sales experience in broadcast services," said Ori Watermann, SkyVision's CEO."Adding global TV satellite distribution and content management fields to our current portfolio of services and solutions seemed only natural, as we have the proven experience, infrastructure and local presence and support to respond to broadcasters and service providers' needs, wherever they are," added Watermann.
