Advancements in technology allow for broader connection with Persian communities

A new technology, cutting-edge virtual camera system, has been installed at SAT-7 PARS’ Limassol studio in Cyprus, taking multiple Persian programs to new heights. This system allows presenters and actors to move about and interact with a digitally-designed virtual environment, bringing stories to life. It will help the broadcast ministry reach more isolated persecuted Iranian and Afghan Christians.

SAT-7, a Christian media ministry, is using cutting-edge technology developed by Red Spy to reach and support isolated Christians facing persecution in Iran and Afghanistan. This virtual reality technology allows SAT-7’s presenters to interact with digitally created sets, even in different locations and between channels. The UK director of the ministry is Rachel Fadipe, who sees the technology as a way to deepen support for the church in Iran, Afghanistan, and Tajikistan.

Rachel Fadipe, Director of SAT-7, explains that the technology helps reach the scattered and isolated Persian community worldwide. Their goal is to support the church in a deeper way and to reach those who do not yet know Christ. By using this technology, SAT-7 aims to provide answers to the questions that viewers may have about Christianity, allowing people of all faiths to understand Christianity in a new light through their programs.

SAT-7, launched in 1996 with international headquarters in Cyprus, broadcasts Christian and educational satellite television programs to over 30 million people in the Middle East and North Africa. Their mission is to make the gospel accessible to everyone and support the church in its work and witness for Jesus Christ. SAT-7 broadcasts 24/7 in Arabic, Farsi (Persian), and Turkish using multiple satellite channels and online services. For media inquiries, contact Matti Stevenson at 719-360-0586 or
