Tele-Cine is to install a second satellite up-link service, extending its reach to include South America and Africa, writes Barbara Marshall.
US customer ET Networks, for which Tele-Cine broadcasts distance learning content across Europe on Eutelsat, prompted the move as it is set to extend its transmissions for Cisco and IBM to south America. The new dish, which will broadcast via the Telstar 12 satellite platform, will be installed in about six weeks. Meanwhile, SNG Broadcast Services has provided a temporary solution to enable the IP streamed video service to be launched now.
