July 16, 2019 – Newtec has provided a Newtec Dialog hub system to enhance the live broadcast capabilities of Telemedia, a media broadcast company based in Sandton, South Africa. The Newtec Dialog hub will enable Telemedia to offer a data service in addition to video broadcasting services from its fleet of Outside Broadcast (OB) trucks. Founded in 1981, Telemedia has evolved into a broad-based media facility providing a sophisticated and versatile product range with an emphasis on cutting-edge equipment and solutions. Today, outside broadcasts are reliant upon more than a contribution link back to the host broadcaster’s headquarters. They also require access to phone lines, the Internet, email and file transfer services. However, installation of these essential services is normally provided by fixed line operators and is very costly. Once the installation is completed, the services are often used on a one-time basis and very rarely used again. Installation of these critical services on board OB trucks eliminates the need for one-off installations and means that the services travel with the trucks wherever they are required. Newtec Dialog is a single-service and multiservice VSAT platform that allows operators and service providers to build and adapt their infrastructure and satellite networking according to business or missions at hand. Based on the cornerstones of flexibility, scalability and efficiency, the Newtec Dialog platform gives the operator the power to offer a variety of services on a single platform.
