STN, a leading provider of transmission services and solutions to broadcasters, is augmenting and strengthening its already significant presence in the Asia Pacific market. The rapid globalisation of content, triggered by the movement of people from Asian countries to those in Europe, Africa, Middle East and the Americas, has created an increase in demand for local, cultural content to be delivered to new audiences in new markets.This requirement to expand internationally is also driving local telecoms, and other media related companies, to take their businesses to markets beyond their own.
“Today, individuals are more mobile than ever before,” explains Andrej Lovsin, CEO of STN. “No matter where people are located, they want to enjoy the familiar – their own language and culture, including news and sports. To be able to deliver programming that is relative to them and enables them to keep in touch with the country they have left, is extremely important.”
STN is committed to enabling Asian broadcasters to extend their reach into new markets and to new audiences around the world, particularly in Europe, Middle East, Africa and the U.S/Canada. The company has made a significant impact in the region and is attracting interest from major players in the Asian broadcast industry with its individual, tailored approach to their needs. This has led to the development of new and exciting projects with high profile clients across Asia Pacific, eager to reach expatriate customers and tap into this lucrative segment of the market.
In addition to its broadcast offering, STN also offers a suite of services to telecom and data companies that wish to deliver services much further afield. STN provides comprehensive hosting, hub and TT&C solutions for Far East clients and can enable them to reach as far as the Americas via STN’s extensive network.
At its world-class teleport in Slovenia, STN offers a broad portfolio of well-established, worldwide media offerings including playout, multicast, hosting and uplink/downlink services. The teleport is internationally recognised, and was named Independent Teleport Operator of the Year 2016 by the World Teleport Association (WTA). STN consistently remains one step ahead by evolving its services and employing the latest and most innovative technologies, offering broadcasters and organisations direct access to a variety of high-quality satellite capacity that spans the globe. With an increasing number of PoPs in broadcast centres around the world, STN’s satellite portfolio is complemented with worldwide fibre connectivity, offering customers unrivalled choice and flexibility.
“At STN, we realise that each customer requirement is unique. We are pleased to offer services that are as individual as they are,” continues Lovsin. “We aim to meet the varying demands of our Asian customers through our adaptable service solutions. We can facilitate the delivery of content to an audience that wants to retain strong cultural links with its homeland and we can collaborate with other media related companies within the region to introduce their services to a truly international marketplace and successfully grow their businesses.”
