SISLink and Intelsat to Launch HD for SNG
February 26, 2008
Intelsat and SISLink, t provider of satellite uplink services in Europe, have formed a strategic alliance to launch an HD-ready automated video delivery service for satellite newsgathering (SNG) users in the United States.
The strategic alliance will offer Intelsat uPod, a fully integrated broadcasting solution that will allow U.S. SNG operators to execute real-time broadcasting services more efficiently. The new service will blend Intelsat's space and ground infrastructure with SISLink's uPod system to support web-based scheduling and transmission of live standard and high definition video, as well as voice and Internet communications, between wherever news or sports events are unfolding throughout the continental United States.
