The strategy to diversify into B2B supply in the digital sector is continuing with products launched around streaming, mobile games, pricing data and in play data.
SIS LIVE provides specialised broadcast solutions including HD, UHD, satellite uplinks, streaming, satellite internet and teleport together with fibre services. SIS LIVE is in the process of transitioning from a solely satellite business to a mixed satellite and fibre business and now has 65 fibre connections across the UK and Ireland and expects this to increase to 100 by mid 2017.
SIS LIVE has signed an agreement with the media services arm of Babcock International Group to supply Direct To Home(DTH) services using SIS’s UK teleports for uplinking and satellite facilities provided by SIS for distribution of several television channels to households served by the SKY platform.
The trend of news broadcasters to move away from Satellite News Gathering (SNG) towards using IP technology and 4G mobile technology has seen a decrease in demand from SIS LIVE customers for SNG trucks with the fleet size expected to reduce to 18 trucks by 2017.
