Azercosmos Signs Partnership Deal With Kenya's Space Engineering Company

Azercosmos has established a formal partnership with ViewMedia, a global media service provider, offering content distribution and delivery across the globe to television and radio channels over multiple platforms.


ViewMedia will provide digital satellite services to its customers in the Middle East, Europe and Africa via Azerspace-1 satellite.

The company broadcasts more than 150 TV and radio channels worldwide from many terrestrial platforms and ensures easy distribution of video content to carriers through its high-quality infrastructure.

“This partnership will enable us to provide uninterrupted distribution of popular channels to millions of our viewers, particularly in the African region,” said ViewMedia’s Commercial Director Safia Rana.

“ViewMedia’s modern and high-tech broadcasting networks will guarantee customers optimal and efficient use of Azerspace-1 satellite’s resources,” Chief Commercial Officer of Azercosmos Mark Guthrie said.

Azercosmos is Azerbaijan’s first-ever satellite, which launched Azerspace-1 on February 8, 2013. Azercosmos has succeeded in becoming one of the driving forces of the ICT sector both in the country and the region. The company operates two communications satellites – Azerspace-1, Azerspace-2 plus the low-orbit satellite Azersky.
