Unitron NV: Sky partners with Unitron for new home entertainment system, Sky Q

POPERINGE, Belgium, April 12, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sky partners with
Unitron for new home entertainment system, Sky Q UnitronGroup today announces
it has partnered with Sky to create a new line of digital Multi-Dwelling Unit
(MDU) products for Sky's new home entertainment system, Sky Q. With the
Unitron dSCR family of Outdoor Unit (ODU) Multiswitch products, Sky Q can be
easily deployed to Sky's hospitality customers, as well as customers living
in flats.

Sky Q is Sky's next generation home entertainment service, which will open up
a whole new way of watching TV. Available in early 2016, Sky Q is a family of
advanced products, connecting wirelessly to create a new ecosystem that makes
it easier than ever for customers to access all their favorite TV, and brings
an even wider range of entertainment to the big screen.

Sky Q will allow customers to watch on up to five screen simultaneously, while
recording four other channels, pause on one screen and carry on viewing on
another, watch shows from their box, whether live, recorded or on demand,
anywhere around the home, and for the first time, to take their recordings
with them on their tablet.

Unitron dSCR-54, dSCR-58, and dSCR-516 digital single cable ODU products allow
the Sky Q set top boxes to receive all available content via an existing
single cable run from the main satellite dish trunk system. In addition to
supporting the new Sky Q system the dSCR products support backwards
compatibility to older Sky boxes and industry communication standards EN50494
and EN50607.

"Our new dSCR family is a winning solution for Sky to enable their
groundbreaking new home entertainment system, Sky Q, for those customers
residing in MDU residencies. As industry leaders of analog single cable
systems we are continuing to lead with next generation versions." said co
CEO's Elisabeth and Philippe Lamaire.

"We are pleased that Unitron has delivered to meet our new Sky Q system needs
with their dSCR Multiswitch products. Our partnership will mean that even
more Sky customers can take advantage of all that Sky Q has to offer," said
Andrew Olson, Director of New Products at Sky.

Sky Q will be available in the UK and Ireland in early 2016 joining Sky's
existing line-up of TV products, including the UK's most popular PVR Sky+.
The Unitron dSCR product is Ultra HD ready in advance of Sky launching the
UK's most comprehensive Ultra High Definition service later in 2016.
