Multi-markets and Multi-sectors for CASBAA

HONG KONG, Apr 3, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - In recognition of its remit to increase the diversity of video distribution, CASBAA added seven companies to its membership roll in Q1 2012 as well as recording an upgrade to Patron Status.

Dutch software R&D firm Exset joined as a Patron Member along with New Corporate Members including Japanese multichannel operator Jupiter Telecommunications (J:COM), US satellite manufacturer Orbital Science Corporation and broadcaster Setanta Sports and a Fashion One TV upgrade to Patron Membership.

Further additions of India-based global communications provider Tata Communications, publishing and media company Haymarket Media Group and Swedish software systems supplier Accedo reflect CASBAA's growing effectiveness as an industry representative within Asia and worldwide.

"While we are firmly rooted in the Asia Pacific, it is highly encouraging to see so many non-domestic companies recognizing the importance of the region," said Simon Twiston Davies, CEO, CASBAA.

Based in Amsterdam, Exset's core business activities include R&D and software upgrades for Pay-TV hardware including head-end and set top boxes.

J:COM is Japan's largest MSO providing cable television, high speed Internet access and telephony to customers throughout Japan.

Orbital is a developer and manufacturer of smaller space and launch systems, pioneering new classes of rockets, satellites and other space-based technologies.

Setanta Sports operates nine sports channels in 26 countries to over 30 million households. Specialising in rugby content in eight Asian markets, on ten platforms Setanta also distributes other sports genres.

Fashion One TV is a fashion and entertainment network broadcasting in 198 countries through free-to-air and direct-to-home satellites with over 300 new shows and 600 new clips each season.

Tata Communications delivers solutions to multi-national enterprises, service providers and Indian customers by leveraging its advanced solutions capabilities and domain expertise across its global and pan-India network.

Originally launched as a publishing and media company, Haymarket Media Group's services now encompass business media, conferences, consumer media, customer media, exhibitions, forums and awards ceremonies.

As an enabler of Smart TV and IPTV applications, Accedo provides platforms, applications, tools and services to TV operators and other media companies, as well as to consumer electronics manufacturers as they deliver next-generation TV experience.

"Our newest members illustrate the global nature of multichannel TV and reinforce CASBAA's commitment to promote the industry in both the local and global arena," added Twiston Davies.
