AIRPORT CITY BUSINESS PARK, Israel, August 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
RRsat Global Communications Network Ltd. (NASDAQ: RRST), a leading provider of comprehensive digital content management and global distribution services to the television and radio broadcasting industry, announced today that Avi Cohen, RRsat CEO, will participate in a panel on Prospects for Content Management and Transmission Services at the World Satellite Business Week to be held in Paris on September 11, 2013. More than 600 representatives of global satellite communications and information businesses attend the annual meeting.
The panel is part of the Symposium on Prospects for TV Distribution, a sub-event dedicated to the future of global TV distribution and the role of satellite networks, which is being held for the first time this year. It provides a forum for top service provider executives to share views on key trends in the market and on investments needed to address broadcasters' future needs. Topics covered will include the optimization of content delivery and the future role of satellite in the TV environment.
"The variety of video delivery platforms, formats and models for monetizing content has increased rapidly in recent years and content management has become an essential element of the video workflow," said Mr. Cohen. "Media and entertainment companies are increasingly turning to broadcast service companies to oversee highly complex content management and content preparation for multi-screen operations. This change presents media broadcasting service providers with an outstanding opportunity to provide value-added content preparation, playout and other content management services, but also means that companies must be up to the task of bridging the worlds of broadcast and multi-screen operations."
"RRsat possess the capabilities, knowledge and skill set that allow us to succeed in the multi-platform world and to provide the sophisticated services media companies need," Mr. Cohen continued. "At the Symposium on Prospects for TV Distribution we will discuss how the industry can gear up to succeed in the evolving content distribution ecosystem."
