Talia expands Mena services on Arabsat
Riyadh, March 13, 2013
Talia, a top-tier provider of data communications and voice services in the Middle East, Africa, and Europe, has announced the launch of its broadcast playout services on the Arabsat fleet.
Headquartered in UK, Talia operates its own teleport and datacenter facility in Germany, and has support and sales offices in the UAE, Nigeria and Iraq.
Located at 26 degrees East, the Arabsat broadcast hotspot offers more than 600 channels of satellite television and radio stations.
As an established data communications, network, and satellite solutions provider, Talia will offer a complete solution to channels so that they can maximize their exposure while minimizing their expense, said a senior official.
'This is the perfect opportunity for channels to cover the Mena region and Europe all on one broadcast,' remarked Travis Mooney, the chief operations officer of Talia.
"The BADR position is unique and captures the Mena and Europe audience. 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," he stated.
The company said broadcasting with Arabsat marks the expansion of its media division and allows Talia to offer a complete solution to their existing broadcast customers, as well as offer new partners any solution they require.
Talia now offers, separately or as a bundle: contribution links, teleport services, satellite broadcast playout, as well as IPTV solutions.
Nabil Shanti, the chief commercial officer at Arabsat said Talia had been a great partner and very successful in their data communications business.
"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," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
