RRsat Global Communications Network Ltd. (NASDAQ: RRST), a leading provider of comprehensive digital content management and global distribution services to the television and radio broadcasting industry, announced today that it has been selected as the major global distributor for media coverage of the upcoming trip to Israel of U.S. President Mr. Barack Obama, to broadcasters around the world.

President Obama is scheduled to arrive in Israel on March 20 for a three-day trip, his first to the country since taking office in 2009. He will be accompanied by a large delegation of reporters from around the world who will provide detailed coverage of the trip. As the major distributor of coverage to broadcasters worldwide and the primary source for live updates, RRsat will uplink the content to satellites covering all continents, using its global network that includes its teleports in Israel and the U.S.

RRsat will distribute online video coverage of the President's visit to enable millions of viewers worldwide to follow the visit via internet and mobile devices. Video streaming service will be provided via RRsat's teleport at Emek Ha'ela, which will gather satellite signals transmitted by the company's Digital Service News Gathering (DSNG) vehicles for on-the-spot updates of the President's activities.

In addition, RRsat will distribute live reports from stand-up view positions in RRsat's state-of-the-art studio in the heart of Jerusalem. TV networks will be offered studio services, including editing and recording, and distribution services from the Jerusalem based "Media Press Center".

"RRsat is pleased to be chosen as the primary source for global HD distribution, over both satellite and the internet, of President Obama's high profile visit to Israel", commented Avi Cohen, RRsat Chief Executive Officer. "The jam-packed, three-day trip gives RRsat an excellent opportunity to demonstrate its cutting edge professional live event services and its outstanding ability to distribute live content around the globe at the highest broadcast quality.
