360 Systems The Product Of Choice By Middle East Satellite TV Providers

The broadcast community in the Middle East is increasingly turning to 360 Systems Image Servers and their 2470 Broadcast Time Delay as reliable, affordable solutions to meet escalating demand for satellite TV broadcasting in the Middle East, a market that is predicted to double by 2010.
There are currently nine 360 Systems Image Servers in use at Noorsat, a Bahrain-based satellite provider that transmits eight pay-TV and free-to-air (TFA) services, carrying more than 100 TV channels on its three direct-to-home satellites reaching the Arab world and Europe.
Noorsat prefers Image Servers because they are cost-effective, reliable and simple to operate, making them ideal play-out servers for a growing number of TV stations using Noorsat services.
Three Image Servers handle play-out at Samacom, a vertically integrated satellite services provider in Dubai, United Arab Emirate, that operates several digital direct-to-home platforms. In addition, an Image Server is in use at UAE-based Ajman TV channel 4, broadcasting locally and via satellite to 26 channels in the Middle East, Africa and Europe.
Middle Eastern satellite providers also use 360 Systems' 2470 Broadcast Time Delay units to re-broadcast to different time zones. Four 2470 Delays transmit time-delayed programming for Orbit Communications, a satellite provider operating 24 TV and 24 radio channels, which serve 50 million viewers across the Middle East and Africa.
