GlobeCast takes 2 more from Eutelsat - 08-September-2009, 07:01

Satellite services company GlobeCast is taking 2 additional transponders from Eutelsat on its Atlantic Bird 1 and W2A satellites. The contracts cover a pair of 36 MHz (equivalent) transponders and will run for 3 years. Financial terms were not revealed.

GlobeCast says the new capacity will be used for professional video services in order to boost GlobeCast's response to increasing requirements from client broadcasters and news agencies to deliver live coverage of sports, breaking news and special events across Europe.


GlobeCast, owned by France Telecom, is a major player in terms of satellite contribution and distribution of TV programmes and feeds. GlobeCast says using its Satellite News Gathering (SNG) vehicles and flyaway antennas, it will leverage the new capacity for a full suite of occasional services in Standard Digital and High-Definition. GlobeCast's Europe-based fleet comprises 39 SNG vehicles and Flyaways of which seven are located in the UK, 10 in Italy and 22 in France. GlobeCast also provides global coordination services (logistics, dedicated teams, accreditation) and distribution by satellite or fibre to platforms located on five continents.
