MUMBAI: Satellite operator SES has said that the launch of its SES-12 satellite recently will augment the capacity of India’s growing direct-to-home (DTH) market.

SES-12 was launched onboard SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral in Florida, US, in early June. It will replace and augment the services currently being provided on SES’ NSS-6 satellite.

SES-12 along with SES-8 will reach 18 million TV homes from its orbital position.

“SES-12’s high throughput capacity over South Asia and India could potentially help meet the enormous demand for capacity that will be needed to fast-track Digital India, and financial inclusion initiatives,” PTI quotes SES Video Executive Vice-President, Global Sales Deepak Mathur as saying.

According to SES, the two satellites will provide pay-TV operators the reliability and scalability to elevate viewing experiences by adding more content and delivering higher-quality picture quality to address the ever-increasing audience demand for High Definition (HD) and Ultra HD content.

The cutting-edge technology satellite, which will provide coverage from the Middle East to Australia, effectively combines two satellites into one offering powerful Ku-band wide beams for broadcast and media applications, and high throughput spot beams for providing internet connectivity, reliable cellular services and content targeted at specific language groups.

“With its dual capabilities of both wide beams and high throughput spot beams, SES-12 will serve to enhance connectivity for people and businesses in remote and unconnected parts across Asia, where providing rural connectivity and eliminating the digital divide is a key priority for many governments. SES-12 also brings augmented capacity to enable satellite broadcasting and direct-to-home (DTH) services across Asia-Pacific,” said Mathur.

SES has five satellites NSS-12, SES-8, NSS-6, SES-7 and SES-9 currently operational specifically over India.
