SATEXPO & the distribution chain

The value of satellite in the distribution chain is undeniable, when you realize that much of the world’s video already flows through its networks. There was a time when satellite was the only way of distributing video, the satellite operators already understand the demands of video, inside and out.

These days, satellite is of course one of the many ways to distribute video, yet it remains one of the most reliable and efficient methods, which allows content providers to maintain their footing while learning how to make the most of these new platforms.

On an annual basis, all regional industry professionals within the Satellite sectors gather at CABSAT to actively formulate, sculpt and define future growth strategies for Satellite covering all commercial markets, broadcast and content delivery, mobile communications, maritime, aviation and the space industry.=
