EuropeStar gears up to meet Ku-band demand in India

EuropeStar hopes to sell its Ku-band capacity on the satellite Europe*Star 1 to companies wanting to multi-or uni-cast Indian programming and content to any of the non-US NRI communities abroad. Supplying Ku-band satellite capacity to the inter-regional direct-to-home (DTH) players will be one of the focus areas for the Indian operations of the satellite operator Europe*Star, once the DTH norms are finalised.

Europe*Star 1 is one of the most powerful satellites with Ku-band capacity looking at India. Thirty per cent capacity of the satellites eight transponders is reserved for India. It is the first of two co-located satellites, and the all Ku-band payload is capable of delivering a beam of at least 52 dBW (of broadband services) into small dishes in all the five footprints of Europe, Southern Africa, the Middle East, the Indian subcontinent, and South East Asia. This will enable companies to uplink, not just inside a region, but also inter-region.
