SIS Live has installed a new iDirect hub at its MediaCityUK base in Salford to provide IP services to UK and overseas customers.

The hub will run on multiple satellites, including a new SIS Ka Band service utilising an 8.1 metre antenna at SIS Live’s MediaCityUK teleport.

It will also work alongside the existing SIS Live iDirect services, which operate out of the company’s Milton Keynes teleport.

SIS Live managing director David Meynell said: “We have developed a bookings and IP proposition that is unique to the marketplace and will appeal to all serious broadcasters in the UK and beyond.”
