ONE CONNXT Delivers in the Clutch for Middle-Eastern Clients When Satellite Goes Down
On Sunday, December 2, 2012, NileSat 101 changed its orbital position, affecting channels on the satellite that transmit content to Europe. Due to the change, several Middle Eastern channels lost their signals and were dark for over 24 hours. During this crucial time, ONE CONNXT assisted its full-time and ad-hoc broadcast customers with a technical solution via proprietary technology that insures delivery to locations outside of NileSat 101’s altered footprint. Within its current network, ONE CONNXT facilitated systems and enabled operators to get their services back on air.
“It has been a trying time for the team during the last few weeks in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in New York,” says Mark Lobwein, Head of Global Sales, for ONE CONNXT. “But, we are absolutely committed to assisting broadcasters in their time of need.”
Lobwein also stated, “ONE CONNXT’s technology is a huge advancement for the broadcast industry. Until now, broadcasters had to spend a lot of money and manpower to enable and maintain redundancy solutions for their content. ONE CONNXT provides a total solution for both primary and backup feeds, with complete flexibility for all platforms. Whether a broadcaster is sending a live feed from a sporting event, backing up an entire network, or simply sending service from a hard to reach location, ONE CONNXT always has you covered.”
