MEASAT and Travelxp Join Forces for 4K Asian Distribution

MEASAT Satellite Systems Sdn. Bhd. (“MEASAT”) now has an agreement with Celebrities Management Private Limited (“CMPL”) to distribute the Travelxp 4K HDR channel across the Asia Pacific.

The international travel channel will join MEASAT’s UHD video neighborhood at 91.5 degrees E, where it will be distributed to television platforms and operators in more than 100 countries across Asia. Based in India, Travelxp 4K is India’s first 4K / UHD channel and the world’s first 4K/UHD HDR travel channel. The channel offers hundreds of hours of world-class travel programs from all over the world. Travelxp 4K brings the experience and excitement of travel closer to the viewer than ever before. It is produced by CMPL.

The 91.5 degrees E prime video hot slot is home to the MEASAT-3, MEASAT-3a and MEASAT- 3b satellites, forming the region’s strongest video neighborhood. From 91.5 degrees E, MEASAT supports broadcasters and DTH operators to distribute UHD, HD and SD channels to audiences across Asia, Australia, East Africa and South Eastern Europe.

MEASAT will be showcasing their services during the 30th International Communications and Information Technology Exhibition and Conference (CommunicAsia 2019) from 18-20 June. For more information, please visit MEASAT’s stand at 1T3 – 01, Level 1, Hall C, Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Singapore.

Prashant Chothani, CEO, Travelxp 4K, said the channel is all about bringing the world to homes in stunning resolution — 10 bit REC2020 with HLG HDR will make the viewing experience more immersive and vivid. It’s not just about more pixels in 4K but better pixels. By joining MEASAT’s region-leading UHD lineup and content distribution platform, Travelxp 4K is well-positioned to reach significant audiences across Asia.

Yau Chyong Lim, COO, MEASAT, noted that UHD content is gaining further traction  in Asia and the addition of Travelxp reinforces MEASAT as Asia’s preferred UHD distribution partner.
