Madrid, 7 July 2016.- This year Spanish satellite telecommunications operator HISPASAT is once again the technology sponsor of the 2016 Summer Courses being held from 27 June to 22 July in San Lorenzo de El Escorial, organised by the Complutense University of Madrid.
HISPASAT is working together with the Complutense University of Madrid to provide the technological solution that allows them to transmit television signals over a satellite link located in the Euroforum Infantes, where the Summer Courses are held. The link can be used by all news services and television programmes that wish to send out the images and news updates on the courses that are prepared and distributed by the Complutense University’s production house (UCMTV). This service is provided by Hispasat satellite 30W-4.
HISPASAT’s collaboration is part of its CSR policy in which the company commits to promoting the spread of knowledge, facilitating information access for as far as the coverage of its satellites will reach.
