The agreement enables PSSI Global to expand its broadcaster ecosystem for the delivery of live sports content across North America.
Eutelsat Communications and PSSI Global Services have signed a new agreement, renewing and expanding a partnership for capacity on its Eutelsat 113 West A satellite.
PSSI Global Services is a worldwide leader in broadcast transmission solutions for major live sports events. With over 40 years of experience, along with the Pittsburg Teleport Gateway and a fleet of over 30 C-band and Ku-band satellite uplink production trucks, PSSI specialises in the coordination, production and distribution of domestic and international events.
With Eutelsat Group as its primary satellite operator for the past five years, PSSI is continuing to grow its remote production services, for high value sports content contribution to broadcast rights holders, with premium North American clients including MMA, UFC, NFL, NHL, NBC Sports, PGA, FOX Sports, and CBS Sports.
Speaking about the renewal and expansion of services, Rob Lamb, Founder and Chief Operating Officer of PSSI Global Services said: It has been our pleasure over the years to work closely with the Eutelsat team to provide transmission services for our broadcast and special event customers worldwide. The combination of the Eutelsat satellite transponder bandwidth along with the PSSI International Teleport (PIT) and Eutelsat Iztapalapa Teleport for satellite access control, reception and connectivity services has been a homerun for PSSI and our clientele.
José Ignacio González-Núñez, Eutelsat Group Senior Regional VP, Media Sales Americas added: “We are delighted to further our relationship with PSSI Global in the delivery of live premium sports content and to support the expansion of the broadcaster ecosystem across North America. Professional video is an important market for Eutelsat Group and we ensure that our clients have the best services and capacity for their long-term needs. This collaboration pinpoints once again the vital role of satellite in the media supply chain for professional video, specifically major live sporting events where prime quality is an absolute must.
