Talia starts broadcast playout services on Arabsat satellite fleet

Talia, a top-tier Internet and voice services provider for Africa, Europe, the Middle East and Pan America, recently announced that the company has commenced its broadcast playout services on the Arabsat fleet. Located at 26 degrees East, the Arabsat broadcast hotspot provides more than 600 channels of satellite television and radio stations. Talia CEO Travis Mooney said that the recent development is a perfect opportunity that will enable channels to cover the Middle East, North Africa, and Europe all on one broadcast — making maximized exposure, but to a low cost.

“The BADR position is unique and captures the audiences of the Middle East, North Africa, and Europe. With the flexibility to provide any piece, or a complete bespoke broadcast solution, we are uniquely positioned to deliver the right services, increase coverage, and offer world-wide distribution to our partners,” Mooney added.

By broadcasting with the Arabsat fleet, it marks the expansion of Talia’s Media Division into broadcast services, enabling the company to provide a complete solution to their existing broadcast customers. Talia now offers, separately or as a bundle: contribution links, satellite broadcast playout, teleport services and IPTV solutions.

“Talia has been a great partner and very successful in their data communications business,’ said Arabsat Chief Commercial Officer Nabil Shanti. “We were there at the start of their data communications business, and we are pleased to add them to our list of Media Access Points and be partners in their expansion into broadcast services.”
