Globecomm to Design and Integrate DTH Platforms for Sky Design will support 16 carriers on Intelsat IS-16 for SD and HD TV channels

September 2014

Hauppauge, New York – September 8, 2014 – Globecomm announced today that it received a contract to design and integrate new DTH platforms at each of two teleports operated by Sky, a global DTH service provider. Each platform consists of an 11-meter Ku-band antenna capable of supporting up to 16 carriers on Intelsat IS-16, with indoor rack-mounted electronics, antenna-mounted broadband power amplifiers, receive subsystems and Globecomm's AxxSys® Orion network monitor and control systems. The new platforms will allow facility disaster recovery for the direct-to-home services via site diversity at the Rio de la Loza teleport and the Santa Fe teleport.

"This new project continues our long-term collaboration with Sky and Televisa in Mexico and exemplifies our vision to be the leading provider of next generation media based solutions globally" said Gerard Johnston, Vice President Americas. "We are proud to contribute to the success of one of the industry's most successful pay television providers."

Globecomm's approach to achieve its vision is to continue to design and integrate broadcast uplink facilities, complex data centers, Direct to Home (DTH) facilities, media platforms and network technology upgrades while stressing flexibility over its global fiber and satellite network for contribution to distribution and life cycle support services.

Moving content from where it originates, or where it can be picked up, to where it needs to go is what Globecomm does. Our true "contribution to distribution" model allows us to seamlessly distribute client video broadcasts on our global network and deliver it to its final destination, or destinations.
