SIS LIVE partners with Babcock International for uplink services
Broadcast connectivity supplier SIS LIVE has signed an agreement with the media services arm of Babcock International Group (Babcock) to supply uplink services from its UK teleports. The service commenced with SIS LIVE providing uplink facilities from its MediaCityUK teleport. John Bozza, commercial director, SIS LIVE, said: “We already have great experience of delivering critical distribution services for UK Sport and to bookmakers across the UK, Ireland and beyond, so working with Babcock to deliver uplinking capability was the next logical service to offer. We look forward to exploring further opportunities with Babcock.”
Leah Holding, director, media services, Babcock, said: “SIS LIVE’s consistent reputation for providing high-quality and reliable connectivity across diverse routings made it the obvious choice of partner for this service.
“We look forward to working with SIS LIVE to deliver our UK customers content, via their impressive satellite portfolio.”
SIS LIVE’s MediaCityUK teleport is one of the most modern and able teleports in the north of the UK, offering an unprecedented level of 24/7 connectivity over Ku, Ka, C and DBS bands; backed up by SIS LIVE’s teleport at Milton Keynes.
