Dublin-based Solaris Mobile yesterday made a presentation to France’s Mobile TV Forum.

Solaris Mobile wants to see its S-Band satellite technology used to transmit video and audio channels, as well as telematics services, to vehicles and hand-held smart phones and similar devices across Europe.

At present, Solaris Mobile is carrying out trials in Paris, demonstrating the broadcast of TV, radio and data services to phones, other handheld devices and cars – across the city and surrounding areas which represents what the future commercial service would look like.

Solaris Mobile, owned by SES Astra and Eutelsat, is the only company currently to have an operational satellite within the S-Band spectrum, allocated under a process managed by the European Commission, across Europe, making them the first company to be able to offer a service of this kind.

Steve Maine, CEO, Solaris Mobile, said: “Solaris Mobile is delighted to be presenting its plans for commercial content distribution within the French market, by utilising the company’s unique technology and broadcasting capabilities.

“Whilst the service is initially only available within France, we hope that in the near future many more European cities will also benefit.”
