Bulgaria Sat selects Ericsson to enable high-quality UHDTV across Balkans
Ericsson will deliver its AVP 4000 system encoders to Bulgaria Sat, an affiliate of Bulsatcom, 56 High Definition MPEG-4 services, three High Definition HEVC services and 46 Standard Definition MPEG-4 services.
The solution will also offer the first 4K services delivered via the new Bulgariasat-1, the first geostationary communications satellite in Bulgaria’s history, which launched in June this year.
The deal represents the continuation of a long-standing relationship between Ericsson and Bulsatcom, the largest pay-TV provider in Bulgaria.
The two companies have worked together for over 10 years to deliver more than 100 digital TV channels and broadband internet access to over one million subscribers. ■
