(MENAFN Press) Leading broadcast distribution company, ViewSat announced that it has received the accolade of 'Highly Commended- Satellite Services Provider of the Year' at the Digital Studio Awards held in Dubai during CABSAT, the Middle East and Africa's largest broadcast digital media and satellite expo. The award recognises the company's many achievements and investments in the region in the last year which include doubling of its broadcast capacity in MENA and the construction of a 9M Antenna to bring services in house



Awaes Jaswal, CEO of ViewSat said, "We are thrilled to be recognised in such a prestigious category at the Digital Studio Awards. Our work to develop the business in this region has contributed to our 45% regional business growth in the last three years, and we have exciting plans to develop a standalone office in Dubai to further support our clients in the region.

Furthermore, ViewSat was commended for the excellent support it offers to its 75 regional customers.
