Hispasat and MBS Collaborate on UltraHD

Hispasat and Media Broadcast Satellite (MBS) in Germany have made an agreement to allow the teleport of MBS in Usingen, Germany, to be used to transmit UltraHD content to Hispasat satellites at 30º West. That location is said to be suitable for reception in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. The companies said that they have a special ‘risk sharing’ business model to avoid the entry barriers of content providers in terms of distribution costs.
