Satellite technology developer Newtec will use its upcoming business seminar in Brussels to strengthen its ties with Middle eats customers as well as educating the international market on the cost cutting potential of technical innovation.

The company expects the Middle East to fuel its business development in the coming years.

“The addition of new satellite capacity in the region means Newtec is convinced the Middle East will play an important role in the growth of the company,” said Serge Van Herck, CEO, Newtec.

“Newtec has a long tradition of serving demanding customers throughout the Middle-East. The Arab State Broadcasting Union (ASBU) for instance fully relies on Newtec’s MENOS platform for exchanging TV and Radio across all countries in the region. We also have customers using our FlexACM and Sat3Play technology,” added Van Herck.

The seminar – titled How to keep satellite services profitable – will be attended by delegates from around the world.

“The event will tackle a number of business and technical issues such as how to reduce costs and scale profit using the latest technologies and how to optimise bandwidth capacity with DVB-S2,” said Van Herck.

A number of high-level executives from the satellite industry, including Robert Bell, executive director of the World Teleport Association, Alexander Oudendijk and CCO of SES Astra, will deliver presentations at the event.

The Middle East will also be represented amongst the speakers with Lebanese satellite service providers IDMI and Horizon Satellite Services contributing.

Newtec was a double winner at the Digital Studio Awards held during CABSAT. The firm won the Most Innovative Project of the Year award for MENOS together with partners Arabsat and ASBU. CTO Dirk Breynaert also won the Outstanding Industry Contribution Award.

The seminar will take place in Brussels, April 20-21.
