“China is a huge and vibrant market for media, with Pay-TV industry revenues and channels expected to grow as demand for entertainment, news and sports content evolves in existing and new formats like OTT and Ultra HD,” says David Chan VP Sales & Marketing for Quintech. “We see continued demand for Quintech’s products from the media and broadband sectors in China and are excited to help broadcasters leverage the industry’s most scalable and flexible family of RF matrix switches,” he added.
