Arqiva Contract With Afrique

Arqiva has announced a contract with Multi TV Afrique, subsidiary of Canal Overseas-Canal+ Group, to improve the transmission quality of Canalsat Horizons, its digital multichannel TV package.
Until today, African TV channels on the digital multichannel TV package were downlinked on various sites within the Paris area. Due to five new centralised and dedicated antennas, situated away from the interference zones, Arqiva is able to guarantee the quality of C Band downlinks for all African channels forming part of the digital multichannel TV package.
Downlinked signals will be multiplexed and sent to Canalsat's playout centre in Boulogne.
RTI, Radio Television of the Ivory Coast, will be the first African channel to benefit from this new infrastructure and will be followed by Supersport 3, RTB (Burkina), CRTV (Cameroon); ORTM (Mali) and RTS (Senegal).
Using its satellite downlink facilities and fibre network, Arqiva plays a large part in the enhancement of the most popular French speaking digital multichannel TV package in Africa. From 4 February 2008, Canalsat Horizons not only offers a better signal quality on the African channels to its subscribers but also access to new TV Channels from Africa.
This new three-year contract capitalises on the increasingly important Arqiva infrastructure in France, which includes seven uplink/downlink C-Band antennas from 2.40 metres to 11 metres.
