Airport City Business Park, Israel – October 11, 2011— RRsat Global Communications Network Ltd. (NASDAQ: RRST), a leading provider of comprehensive content management and global distribution services to the television and radio broadcasting industries, and NovelSat, a high-end manufacturer and developer of the pioneering 3G-Sat modulation technology, NS3™, announced today that live testing of its NS3™ modulation solution resulted in a 26% data rate increase over DVB-S2. NS3™ achieved a rate of 8.25 Mbps compared to DVB-S2’s rate of only 6.54 Mbps, over a 3 MB carrier. This remarkable achievement should have an impact on the industry, especially for small data terminals as well as for Satellite Newsgathering (SNG) services. For certain applications, such capacity boost can be translated into usage of a much smaller antenna, namely around 35% smaller antenna diameter, for similar data rates.

"RRsat is proud to be an early adopter, as exemplified by our use of this advanced technology, and is excited about the potential benefits NS3™may have for our customers,” said Ziv Mor, CTO of RRsat. "In addition to the potential data rate and bandwidth advantages, RRsat may now be able to provide higher levels of reliable and robust service while allowing its customers to use smaller antennas.”

"It has been very helpful working with RRsat, a company with a well-earned reputation for assisting and encouraging companies with innovate products and services. RRsat’s guidance and live testing of NS3™ with its impressive roster of first tier customers provided us with the kind of real-time situation needed prior to market launch,” said Itzik Wulkan, NovelSat CEO. "For commercial companies to governmental organizations, we have, with RRsat’s assistance, been able to see firsthand how the NS3™ implementation can improve service value. We are thrilled with the opportunity to extend the impact of these tests further through our new partnership with RRsat.” Read More>>
