News Image
SIS LIVE and ABS have announced a new dedicated solution for OU services.

The SIS LIVE Gateway Service solution for ABS Occasional Use services was announced at IBC2017 earlier this month and offers broadcasters and service providers a flexible Occasional Use platform at competitive rates. The SIS LIVE Gateway Service provides Occasional Use booking services and satellite line-up support for the Ku-band European beam capacity of the ABS-3A satellite. ABS-3 is located at 3°W, which connects the Americas, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.

The service is managed in collaboration with ABS technical and operational staff through SIS LIVE's OU booking desk and MCR technical staff, utilising SIS LIVE's teleports and connectivity infrastructure. The gateway service serves ABS customers, providing a platform to deliver video and data feeds to a wide broadcasters' community in Europe.

David Meynell, Managing Director, SIS Live, said: "We are delighted to couple our respective areas of expertise with ABS in the provision of these new services. Our Gateway Services offering enables customers to take advantage of the world-class broadcast assets and expertise of both companies to tailor a unique Opex model that precisely suits their needs."

Tom Choi, CEO, ABS, added: "SIS LIVE is highly regarded, with a deep understanding of the OU market on multiple platforms, and for multiple applications. This is a major boost for both companies that will further enhance our respective businesses overall. The ability to provide this new platform will accelerate the development of new opportunities in Europe and potentially other markets in the future."
