TRANSFORMING VIDEO SERVICES
How SES’s differentiated solutions are empowering customers
Cutting through the complexity of today’s video distribution chain is challenging, which is why SES has invested in a suite of capabilities to deliver high-quality video anywhere, anytime, and on any screen. SES has built on decades of experience delivering video to audiences all over the world and created a full suite of services that provide end-to-end solutions for every video distribution platform. Encompassing DTH, Cable, IPTV, Video on Demand (VOD), and over-the-top (OTT) distribution, this powerful package is bound together by the defining elements of SES service – high-quality, reliability, innovation and customer care. Brought together these assets fully enable content monetisation for SES customers, and shape the end-user experience.
SES is at the forefront in broadcasting and video technology, capitalising on the power of satellite to deliver high-quality video to DTH antennas, as well as cable and IPTV headends anywhere. SES satellites cover 99% of the globe, and carry content to 325 million homes and over one billion people. SES was the first satellite operator to broadcast a commercial Ultra High Definition (Ultra HD) channel, and broadcasts the largest share of High Definition (HD) channels of any satellite operator.
Distributing a piece of content on linear channels simultaneously with on-demand platforms requires multifaceted capabilities within the same organization. That is why SES is managing this complexity by offering complete content management services through its subsidiary MX1. MX1 has the full capabilities to ensure that every aspect of delivering a piece of content to broadcast or online platforms is managed smoothly, enabling broadcasters, media companies and media right holders to offer end-user content whenever, wherever, and on any device they want.
Beyond services and technology, SES continues to build on its rich history of creating media ecosystems. By working with customers and partners, SES is developing new media platforms to expand TV neighbourhoods, enter new markets and empower local content providers. These platforms are designed according to the customer’s or partners’ requirements and each represent a new future for video distribution that is both linear and on demand.
