MEDIA BROADCAST is a leading service provider for the radio and media industries in Germany. The company, previously a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom, was acquired by the TDF Group in January 2008 and forms part of its European group members. Besides broadcast radio and fibre networks we cover the full spectrum of satellite services, from program distribution to corporate networks. Our satellites are easy-access, thanks to our digital platforms, uplink and downlink facilities and SNG installations. We provide short-term and permanent satellite connections worldwide, fibre networks and remote terminal installations. Corporate customers benefit from end-to-end, fully turnkey SCPC and VSAT services provided worldwide. Since 1977 satellite transmissions are realized from the main satellite teleport of MEDIA BROADCAST in Usingen. Today there are more than 70 transmit antennas (2,4m– 19m) in operation, managed and controlled by the Network Operation Center (NOC) in Usingen. All antennas and services are monitored and controlled from the brand new central control room, 24 hours/365 days a year. Beside the provision of TV, audio, data and IP services the ground stations for a couple of customers are operated from Usingen and teleport infrastructure provided for any specialized solution provided by a customer.
