Newtec celebrates 25 years of innovations

For over a quarter of a century "Shaping the Future of Satellite Communications" is not just a slogan for Newtec

(PresseBox) (Sint-Niklaas, Belgium, ) Through the years, some things disappear, while others still exist and grow stronger. Newtec is celebrating its 25th anniversary this May and says "thankyou" to its customers, industry partners and employees all over the world.

"Shaping the future of satellite communications" is not just a slogan for Newtec. It has been the company's daily practice for over a quarter of a century. Newtec wants to be a learning organisation in every possible way, combining a pioneering spirit with technical excellence and marketplace savvy. Newtec aims to remain at the top of its game, helping customers in the satellite communication industry to realise their business objectives by providing them with new business capabilities, by expanding their market reach, and by enabling them to reduce their operational expenses.

Since its inception in 1985, Newtec has established a strong track record and reputation. It now has nine commercial offices, research and development centres and its own production facility, all spread over five continents. Filling these offices and facilities are close to 300 employees, working with three product lines and over 50 different products.

Newtec was founded by two engineers with a vision: Dirk Breynaert and Jean-Marie Maes. Their vision has produced a pioneering satcom company working at the top of its field globally. In its first ten years, Newtec worked exclusively on R&D and projects for the European Space Agency (ESA). Today, the company's relationship with ESA remains strong and R&D is still very much alive at Newtec. With its ambitious R&D reinvestment policy, Newtec is recognised as a forerunner in several innovative satellite communication technologies, which have been published as industry standards (DVB, DVB-S2, DVB RCS and iSatTV Cenelec pr EN50478).

Newtec plays a crucial role in the satellite communications industry around the globe. Serge Van Herck, CEO Newtec, enthuses: "There are more than 2 billion people watching TV images every day thanks to Newtec products and we are proud to be the European market leader for Internet Broadband over Satellite."

The next few years are set to be exciting for Newtec as the number of TV channels, satellite broadband consumers and the IP traffic worldwide are expected to see continued growth. Broadcasters look forward to drive increasing endto end efficiency across their infrastructure.

"As the deadline for switchover from analogue approaches, digital terrestrial TV and mobile TV are expected to see further growth as well. Also, the increasing need of countries to close the digital divide, combined with the availability of Kaband satellites, will see further potential for double digit growth for the coming years," Van Herck continued.

From its offices around the world, Newtec's passionate and dedicated team serves the company's customers, helping them to shape the future of satellite communications.
