SES' new capacity for Trinity channels

MUMBAI: SES World Skies has announced a new capacity deal on two SES satellites with transmission and live production provider Pacific Television Center aimed at expanding and enhancing the delivery of Trinity Broadcasting Networks‘s Christian-based programming around the world.

As part of the five-year agreement, Pacific Television Center is utilising MPEG-4 technology and capacity on a global C-band transponder aboard SES‘ NSS-9 satellite to distribute Trinity‘s 4 channels of network programming to audiences across the Pacific Ocean Region.
Pacific Television Center is also leveraging C-band capacity aboard the NSS-5 spacecraft, enabling Trinity to reach viewers in the Americas, Africa, Europe and the Middle East. Pacific Television Center is using 24 MHz of capacity aboard the two advanced satellites.

Pacific Television Center VP of broadcast services Howard Fine said,"By moving to the SES World Skies distribution platform, we are providing Trinity Broadcasting with significantly better reach, reliability and picture quality. We have broadened our distribution footprint and power and the introduction of MPEG-4 is enabling Trinity Broadcasting audiences to enjoy a much sharper picture".

We look forward to enabling Pacific Television Center to meet the needs of Trinity Broadcasting and other leading broadcasters with an advanced, global fleet and unrivaled expertise on the ground in virtually every market on earth".
