Shin Satellite chooses TANDBERG Television for distribution

September 13, 2004

Thailand’s Shin Satellite will use TANDBERG Television's evolution 5000 compression system to provide direct-to-home (DTH) video services across the Asia Pacific region.

Shin Satellite was an early adopter of MPEG digital technology, pioneering digital DTH using the Ku-band frequency in 1993, and was also one of the world’s first full-scale user to adopt the MPEG-2/DVB standard in May 1995. This early system included some of the first TANDBERG Television MPEG-2 products.

The new system will be used for the DTH and the global digital-TV distribution activities of Shinsat. The DTH Ku-band service allows Thailand’s major pay television operator, The United Broadcasting Corporation Group (UBC), to provide up to 50 digital channels to its customers.

Using Shinsat’s Thaicom 3 Global Beam for Global Digital TV distribution, broadcasters and channel owners need only uplink once to ensure that more than 3 billion people on four continents can potentially view their channel.
