MEASAT highlights 91.5°E at 2018 show

MEASAT Global Berhad, whose 91.5°E satellite constellation is widely accepted as a video hotslot in Asia, due to its strong lineup of SD, HD and UHD channels as well as DTH platforms, will be back at CommunicAsia this year to share more details about its satellites.

“MEASAT has transformed the 91.5°E orbital location into Asia-Pacific’s leading video neighbourhood from where it distributes over one thousand SD, HD and UHD video channels, and supports six DTH platforms in India, Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei,” commented Raj Malik, Senior Vice President of Sales at MEASAT.

“91.5°E is preferred by the broadcast community on account of its three collocated satellites including MEASAT-3, MEASAT-3a and MEASAT-3b, which make it a reliable and scalable satellite video neighbourhood. Our partnership approach and ability to offer customised and flexible solutions based on our understanding of customer needs and the ecosystem they operate in make us attractive to our end users. In addition, we collaborate and work with technology vendors to test new innovations and are an early adopter in the interest of sharing operational benefits and potential commercial gains to our customers.”

Since it began HD distribution in 2007, MEASAT claims to be the region’s preferred UHD partner with four UHD channels.

“With the ongoing support of thousands of head-ends and pay-TV operators across the region, MEASAT will continue to be a key partner in Asian video distribution,” added Malik.

He commented that CommunicAsia “attracts thousands of attendees from companies across the world”.

“It is an opportunity for MEASAT to strengthen existing relationships and build new ones as we continue to strengthen 91.5°E as the region’s leading video neighourhood by making it more compelling for new and existing channels.”
