Russian satellite operator RSCC has entered the Brazilian market through a partnership with service provider Romantis Brazil.
The pair have started broadcasting the TV Difusora channel in the state of Maranhao in northeastern Brazil. In the urban and rural areas of the state with a population of over three million, television broadcasting is delivered via the Express-AM8 satellite, which is located at 14° West, the westernmost orbital position of the RSCC satellite constellation.
A new monitoring center, built by Romantis and RSCC specialists in the city of Uberlandia, is being used to ensure reliable broadcasting in remote and hard-to-reach areas of Maranhão, according to RSCC.
Gilberto Fagundes, Director of Technology and Production at TV Difusora, said: “Tests of our television distribution network have been carried out in the interior of Maranhão via the Express-AM8 satellite, demonstrating high quality and excellent performance. We work together with Brazilian Television System, a major Brazilian television network, to provide satellite broadcasting in the state of Maranhao, which in terms of size can rival many countries, and this puts additional responsibility on us when selecting a satellite. We have made sure that the Express-AM8 delivers excellent results, and we are glad.”
Alexey Volin, RSCC general director, said: “We have entered the Brazilian television market for the first time, having signed a contract with one of the largest national television companies. I am sure that our contacts will expand. Indeed, today we provide services to national TV channels on four continents – Europe, Asia, Africa and South America, offering advanced and reliable technological solutions to make high-quality TV picture available to viewers in any locality, regardless of its distance.”
