Atemes video headend enables broader coverage across MENA, Egypt, and Southern Africa, giving viewers access to higher-quality video, including UHD channels.
MENA Satellite service provider Nilesat has selected Atemes video headed to feed its latest satellite launch.
The deployment marks the third time that Nilesat has chosen Ateme for a video headend, this time to help revolutionise Nilesats fourth space satellite launch, Nilesat-301. This allows broader, high-quality coverage across the Middle East and Africa. In its third project with Nilesat, Ateme provided its TITAN software solutions, which were instrumental in enabling the delivery of around 50 channels, including HD and UHD. Project deployment was completed in H1 2023 with the assistance of Atemes local partner, Systems Design.
Commenting on the deal, Maissa Kamel, CTO of Nilesat, said: We launched a new satellite to reinforce our commercial leadership in broadcast services and open new services over Southern Africa and the Nile basin. But we needed a more modern, compatible video headend to send the feeds. Ateme provided the right technology and had already demonstrated its support throughout our ongoing relationship. We are excited to be working with them once again.
Razik Zaghlouli, Atemes Regional Sales Director for MENA, added: Viewers in Africa have higher expectations and demand the best quality. We are honoured to support Nilesat, one of the largest satellite providers in the MENA region, in delivering exceptional video quality to a broader audience.
