The contract ensures that, in case of any technical issues with Sky Deutschland’s main signal, the broadcaster’s programming will be restored in a short time-frame, from the MX1 Broadcasting Centre in Unterfoehring, Germany.
The agreement includes playout and turnaround services, such as encoding, multiplexing and encryption, and uplink services. To support these services, the MX1 Broadcast Centre will concurrently receive all necessary data and video transmission material from the Sky channels.
“The signing of the contract with Sky is good news for movie fans and sports enthusiasts,” said Christoph Muehleib, SES Vice President Sales and Marketing responsible for ASTRA and MX1 in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. “This new agreement with Sky confirms the trend that business continuity is becoming more and more important, even in the broadcasting industry. All our existing customers, new customers as well as other stand-alone broadcast channels can benefit from these continuity services,” Christoph concluded.
Stefan Kunz, Vice President Broadcast Services at Sky Deutschland: “The absolute reliability of our services for our broadcasting operations is very important to us. With the solution provided by MX1, we are able to sustain our broadcasting operation and the service availability in case of critical issues in our main site as seamlessly as possible.”
