EuroNews has selected Genesis Networks to provide fully managed distribution services for the delivery of EuroNews to North and South America.
Genesis Networks will provide EuroNews with fully managed network backhaul and distribution, including fiber connectivity, from the EuroNews master control facility in Lyon, France, to the Genesis Networks uplink facilities in New York and Atlanta.
The signals are uplinked to the Genesis Networks cable distribution platforms on Galaxy 23 and Intelsat 9 for access by major cable and DTH affiliates throughout North and South America. The turnkey transmission solution includes delivery of seven audio signals — English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and Russian — for the multilingual, pan-European news channel.
To help EuroNews launch the new service in Latin America, Genesis Networks is procuring and administering IRDs and authorization codes for each affiliate that joins the service. In addition, EuroNews has access to Genesis Networks' IRIS software and ultralinks. These tools enable EuroNews to monitor the quality of its transmissions across the globe from the company's operations center in Lyon.
