ABS to provide localised playout for FIC Philippines
Hong Kong – Asia Broadcast Satellite (ABS) and FOX International Channels Philippines Corporation (FIC) announced that they have signed a multi-year and multi-million dollar contract agreement for MCPC services, playout and satellite capacity on ABS-1 and ABS-2 satellites. This service will start second half of 2013 on ABS-1 satellite and will transition to ABS-2 after it is launched later this year.
ABS has made a significant investment on the ground infrastructure and in the installation of digital television playout facilities in Subic Bay, Philippines as well as Hong Kong. ABS is able to support FIC’s playout requirements with the most advanced automation systems, playout servers, encoders, multiplexing and encryption systems in the industry. The Subic Bay facility was enhanced with its services specifically tailored to support FIC’s Philippines operations. FIC signals will be relayed to ABS’ Subic Bay teleport where the channels will be uplinked to ABS-1 satellite.
FIC believes in customising channels for local audiences, and localising its playout for its channels and feeds in the Philippines is in line with that strategy.
