RRsat Distributes Tristit TV Channels

RRsat
Global Communications Network has signed an agreement with Tristit Group, for
distribution services over Middle East and
USA.
Tristit
Group, a company with advanced expertise in the interoperability and the
combining of TV media with
Mobile
and internet technologies, operates its own TV channels worldwide, with
particular focus on mobile participation TV formats. Pursuant to the agreement,
RRsat will distribute Tristit’s TV content to the Middle East and the
United States. Tristit’s
broadcast servers will be hosted at RRsat’s facilities and will be operated
from Tristit’s EMEA head office in
Turkey.
“We are
very pleased that a leading media technology player, with expertise in the interoperability
of Television, Internet and Mobile technologies,
has chosen RRsat to distribute its services to the Middle
East and US,” commented David Rivel, CEO and Founder of
RRsat. “The convergence and increasing use of these technologies by content providers
enables these providers to expand their offering and increase their competitive
edge as visible through the reality television format, which allows the
audience to participate and vote by SMS or through the Internet. I believe that
this agreement is one of many from this innovative cross—media player, and we
expect follow-on orders as we expand its distribution to Asia, East Europe and South America.”
“Our
ability to support these innovative technologies and trends, with live distribution
of audience-participative content globally, increases our repertoire of
services and represents another competitive advantage for RRsat,” continued Mr.
Rivel.
“RRsat
provides us with the best possible professional services and support. RRsat’s
extensive experience and high-end infrastructure creates an environment for us
to enable us to grow faster while maintaining market dominance. We again thank
RRsat for their partnership and continued support” stated Uzay Kadak, CEO and
