“Our DVB-S2 MCPC broadcast platform on Intelsat 14 is an optimum solution for customers who want to introduce UHD and 4K programming into the region,” said Carmen Gonzalez-Sanfeliu, Intelsat’s regional VP, Latin America & the Caribbean. “NASA TV’s presence on Intelsat 14 demonstrates Intelsat’s position as the leader in bringing innovations in media distribution.”

“We are pleased to see the expansion of NASA viewers into Latin America and to be delivering the channel in 4K is especially exciting,” stated Vince Matherne, chief commercial officer at Encompass. “It is an honour to continue to support NASA’s missions, and Intelsat’s fleet of global satellites provides the ideal distribution footprint for not only increasing NASA’s reach but also advanced transmission solutions.”
