Paris, March, 26, 2013 - GlobeCast and Eutelsat Communications (Euronext Paris: ETL) today announced that they have signed a multi-year agreement with NOS, the Dutch broadcasting network, for dedicated capacity on the EUTELSAT 12 West A satellite to meet NOS’s growing requirements for satellite news gathering (SNG).

The new contribution network will support NOS’s planned upgrade to HD operations for its SNG facilities and trucks by the end of 2013. It will also increase the broadcasting resources mobilised by NOS to support news events in 2013 which promise to be highly active in the Netherlands; one high- profile story being the coronation on April 30 of Prince Willem-Alexander.

"We’re pleased that we are once again able to meet NOS’s demanding requirements for reliability and quality of service,” said Alessandro Alquati, Director of Contribution Services at GlobeCast. "We’re looking forward to working with Eutelsat to drive NOS’s expanding and evolving SNG operation.”
