RRsat To Launch New Ku-Band Platforms On AMOS-5 Satellite Over Africa

AIRPORT CITY BUSINESS PARK, Israel, June 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --



RRsat Global Communications Network Ltd. (NASDAQ: RRST), a leading provider of comprehensive content management and global distribution services to the television and radio broadcasting industry, announced today the launch of two new Ku-Band MCPC Platforms on Spacecom's AMOS-5 Satellite at 17°East. These two MCPC platforms, Ku-1 (West Central Africa) and Ku-3 ( East West Africa), will complement RRsat's existing focus on providing Direct To Home (DTH) content to Sub-Saharan Africa.

"The African market for broadcast television is growing rapidly," said Lior Rival, VP Sales & Marketing at RRsat. "Together with AMOS, we believe that with these platforms we will be able to provide leading TV and radio channels the opportunity to reach a continent demanding new television viewing.   RRsat is able to cost-effectively bring content from Europe, Asia and the Americas for DTH distribution.

"AMOS-5 was designed and built specifically for the African market with powerful beams and superior coverage of Africa's largest markets. We are excited that RRsat has chosen to bring their MCPC platforms to our Ku-1 and Ku-3 beams," remarked Eyal Copitt, Spacecom's Sr. VP Sales, Africa, "DTH has tremendous potential in Africa. These platforms on AMOS-5 represent an important element of Spacecom's vision as we transform into a multi-regional satellite operator."
