Leading Service Providers' Panel to Focus on the Trend in the TV Sector and Broadcasters' Needs

AIRPORT CITY BUSINESS PARK, ISRAEL--(Marketwired - Sep 4, 2014) - RRsat Global Communications Network Ltd. (NASDAQ: RRST) a leading provider of digital content management and global distribution services to the television and broadcasting industry, announced today that Avi Cohen, RRsat's CEO, will participate in the Euroconsult panel on the future of TV distribution and the role of satellites at the World Satellite Business Week to be held in Paris on September 8, 2014. More than 600 representatives of global satellite communications and information businesses attend the annual meeting.

The panel is part of the Summit for Satellite Financing, an event dedicated to the future of global TV distribution and the role of satellite networks. It provides a forum for service provider executives to share views on key trends in the market and on investments required to address broadcasters' future needs. Topics covered will include the optimization of content delivery and the future role of satellite in the TV environment.

As part of his appearance, Mr Cohen will be taking part in a Q&A session with the audience to discuss the issues surrounding TV distribution, including the rapid pace of technological change, the evolution of viewing habits, and the changing role of satellite technology as a result.

"We've seen broadcasters and content owners seeking to use a combination of methods to deliver content. While satellite delivery is still relevant, hybrid and optimized delivery through a combination of satellite, fiber and internet is becoming increasingly relevant as broadcasters seek to reduce costs," said Mr. Cohen. "Broadcasters are continually turning to media services companies to provide the widest distribution and audience reach without having to sacrifice on quality or reliability."
