Orion offers distribution of a TV signal throughout the territory of Russia and the CIS using its own satellite platform.

Thanks to the platform's three satellites — Intelsat 15, Horizons 2 (Intelsat) and Express AM5 — the signal can be instantly delivered anywhere in Russia and CIS countries, and also transferred to all cable operators. All platform nodes are connected by ground-based communication channels.

The most reliable satellite media platform for signal distribution in Russia

  • A platform for the exchanging media data in orbital positions 85°E and 140°E.
  • The largest coverage area — 100% of the territory of Russia, the CIS and the Baltic countries.
  • A stable satellite signal with optimal technical and commercial characteristics.
  • Full backup of both ground-based and satellite systems.
  • There are two satellites in orbital position 85°E providing emergency backup if necessary.
  • High level of reliability, guaranteed by SLA.

Innovative technologies for TV channel uplink and operating of satellite earth stations

  • State-of-the-art solid state transmitters (WaveStream PowerStream 200W) with unique signal characteristics.
  • New antenna system (two antennas with backup functions — 9 and 7 meters in diameter).
  • Advanced compression and multiplexing equipment from industry leaders (Harmonic, Ericsson).
  • State-of-the-art modulators with additional pre-correction functions to improve signal quality.

High level of service and operation of the technological system

  • Parametric control providing automatic notification of emergency situations.
  • 24/7 audio-visual monitoring of video streams.
  • Effective organization of transmission equipment maintenance by representatives from manufacturers and suppliers for system monitoring.
  • Clear internal instructions and regulations for each system level, making it possible to respond quickly to any incidents.


Horizons 2 (85°E)

Horizons 2 is a US satellite launched on November 21, 2007. The satellite has a service life of 15 years.

The satellite's existing coverage area is effectively distributed over the Russian Federation and adjacent CIS countries, which ensures operation in the European part of Russia and further to the eastern borders of Krasnoyarsk Krai using small aperture antennas (from 60 cm) for the main working area and antennas from 80-90 cm on its borders.


Express AM5 (140°E)

Express AM5 is a Russian satellite launched on December 26, 2013. The satellite has a service life of 15 years.

Express AM5 beams with uniform power cover the entire territory from the Urals to the Far East, as well as Mongolia, China and Japan.

The signal can be received on a 90 cm diameter antenna.


Intelsat 15 (85°E)

Intelsat 15 is a US satellite launched on November 30, 2009. The satellite has a service life of 17 years.

It covers 99% of Russia's population, from Kaliningrad to the Kuril Islands; the CIS and Baltic countries, Poland, Romania, Mongolia and China.

A characteristic feature of the contour work zone is that it has three significant maximums (European, Siberian and Far Eastern) in the regions with the largest population density in the Russian Federation. In Russia, the signal can be received on a 60 cm diameter antenna; beyond the Urals on an 80 cm antenna.
