SatLink upgrades AsiaSat 5 MCPC platform to DVB-S2

SatLink Communications, the teleport and HD Playout Centre, has announced the upgrade of their Multiple Channels Per Carrier (MCPC) platform on the premium AsiaSat 5 satellite to DVB-S2.

This upgrade will allow International HD, SD & 3D channels to be distributed more cost effectively on AsiaSat 5, which provides access to 620 million households and hotels in the fast growing Asian market.

The new DVB-S2 platform, which utilises SatLink’s full C-band transponder on AsiaSat 5, will deliver higher throughput and greater bandwidth efficiency, enabling high quality, cost effective content contribution and distribution solutions to and from the Asia Pacific.
