ERT Selects Globecast For European Distribution

News Image
Globecast has been selected by broadcaster ERT for its pan-European television and radio distribution.

ERT is a state-owned national broadcaster in Greece and chose Globecast to deliver ERT World and five radio channels to the Greek diaspora throughout Europe.

Globecast will provide fibre connectivity for the content to its Paris headquarters where the signals are then uplinked to HotBird capacity.

Biliana Pumpalovic, General Director of Globecast Moscow, said: "ERT was previously carried on HotBird satellite capacity but because of the country's well-documented problems, it ceased to exist in 2013 and was replaced by NERIT. In 2015 the Greek parliament approved the re-opening of ERT. We launched these new services over Europe in April this year. It's vital for these services to reach the Greek diaspora, hence the need to be compatible with legacy equipment. The customer also specified reliable, fully secured contribution from their premises to the teleport, which of course we are using our unrivalled global connectivity to provide."
