The platforms will launch on the ABS-3A satellite at 3°West and will provide DVB-S and DVB-S2 content across Sub-Saharan Africa, including French speaking Africa and South Africa.
“Launching these services on ABS-3A creates a new era of high performance satellite services to customers in Africa,” said SkyVision CEO, Sky Ori Waterman.
ABS CEO Tom Choi added: “Our cooperation with SkyVision will result in a cost-effective solution to expand coverage in remote regions throughout Africa, add viable bandwidth and introduce new services to more customers.”
The new platforms will support both SD and HD channels in MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 encoding and coverage will focus on the free-to-air channels and pay TV markets in Sub-Saharan Africa.
SkyVision said the platforms will “effectively meet the growing demand for content and DTH services using 90cm dishes”.
