Dallas, TX (PRWEB) August 09, 2012
ONE CONNXT, the leader in IP-based broadcast video delivery, today announced an agreement with Lanka Vision. ONE CONNXT will be used to bring content from Sri Lanka to the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Canada.
Lanka Vision pioneered the introduction of Sri Lankan mainstream television via satellite in 2004. Since 2009, Lanka Vision has used satellite to telecast Sri Lanka’s top entertainment channel “TV Derana” to Australian and New Zealand viewers free of charge. TV Derana is Sri Lanka’s leading television station for reality programs, news and current affairs. ONE CONNXT will be replacing satellite to deliver TV Derana to Australia and New Zealand as well as adding broadcasting to North America. Lanka Vision is planning to expand with additional television and radio stations that will utilize ONE CONNXT technology in the near future.
Sri Lanka and the South Asian subcontinent have relied heavily on expensive satellite solutions until now. When Lanka Vision realized that it needed a more cost effective solution in its pursuit to expand overseas distribution it began to investigate broadband technology. ONE CONNXT met Lanka Vision’s criteria not only for cost, but also for its broadcast quality and reliability. It also had proven its ability to deliver high quality programming through its use in top sporting events including the Emirates Australian Open 2011 and the French Open 2012.
“TV Derana has always believed in using new technology as the way forward,” said Madhawa Madawala, Executive Director of TV Derana. “ However, we must protect our core values. We are very conscious about quality. We want to enhance our viewer’s quality of life with good interactive and entertainment programming. ONE CONNXT helps us to bring our programming to more viewers while maintaining the quality that they have come to expect from TV Derana. ”
Mark Lobwein, head of sales for ONE CONNXT stated, “With video content sometimes being difficult to move out of location in South Asia, the ONE CONNXT solution is the perfect answer for broadcasters wishing to reach the world quickly and cost effectively without sacrificing quality of service.”
Dave Almstead, CEO ONE Media Corp, the parent company of ONE CONNXT added, “ONE CONNXT is very pleased to be extending its reach to South Asia. This is a highly populated part of the world with many broadcasters and great opportunity for near term growth.”
