Fashiotv H3D to launch soon, rides on RRsat support

MUMBAI: Fashion TV (FTV) will soon launch fashiontv H3D, its high-definition 3D channel, in Paris.

For this, the channel had appointed RRsat Global Communications Network Ltd, a leading provider of comprehensive content management and global distribution services to the television and radio broadcasting industries.
As part of a week-long trial run, RRSat started beaming daily fashiontv 3D broadcasts from 18 February, in 10-minute programmes.
RRsat has doubled the shows beamed on its DTH platforms - on the Intelsat-805 satellite over North, Central and South America; on the EUROBIRD-9A satellite to Europe, the Middle East and Africa; and on the Asiasat-5 satellite to Asia and Australia.

Said FTV President and CEO Michel Adam, "FTV is among the pioneers in delivering high quality 3D programming over DTH networks. Based on the feedback we are receiving from our viewers, we expect to launch our 3D channel over DTH to a number of satellite, cable, IP and mobile platforms all over the world during the summer of 2011. Fashion never looked better and we appreciate RRsat‘s ability to get us launched with quality programming, meeting a very tight schedule." 
Commented RRsat CTO and VP Business Development Ziv Mor, "Following RRsat‘s delivery over terrestrial fiber of a live 3D interactive event between Tel Aviv and London together with BT, and our subsequent real-time delivery by satellite of 3D sports events over Europe, this effort is another testament to our ability to play out and deliver 3D content in multiple languages, over multiple satellites integrated within an HD platform. We look forward to broadcasting our first 24 hour 3D channel in 2011."

Accordingly, RRsat will soon start providing uplink, play out and connectivity services for Fashion TV (FTV).
Fashion TV broadcasts in 193 countries to over 350 million households and 7 million public locations across the five continents.
