(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.



ViewSat has been particularly successful in launching new television and radio channels in the region and has radically contributed to the growth of the MENA broadcast industry. It has been a key enabler of wider availability of satellite TV services and has helped a number of regional players to expand into new markets throughout Africa, the Middle East, Europe and North America




At the event, the company was particularly honoured for enabling its customers to reach over 7 million North American viewers- accounting for 33% of all U.S. Farsi speakers and 28% of all U.S. Arabic speakers. Furthermore, ViewSat was commended for the excellent support it offers to its 75 regional customers. The company has done so by employing highly trained Arabic speaking specialists for its 24 hour MCR/support and sales staff
