SIS LIVE Supplies Uplink Services for the 2010 Torch Relay

Date: 28/01/2010
SIS LIVE Supplies Uplink Services for the 2010 Torch Relay David Meynell, Managing Director of SIS LIVE, the world's leading independent supplier of uplink services, announced today that through a contract awarded to Intelsat by IMAGE MEDIA Farm Inc. (IMF), the Company is providing mobile satellite connectivity services for The 2010 Torch Relay. The Relay, the longest ever to take place in a single country, kicked off on October 30 in Victoria, BC and concludes at the Opening Ceremony for the Winter Games on February 12, 2010. IMF, provider of complete contract HD video production services, is the official chronicler of the Winter Games. The announcement was made from SIS LIVE's US headquarters in Washington, DC.
SIS LIVE is supplying a Yukon SUV equipped with the Company's Intelsat ® uPod TM, a fully integrated broadcasting solution that allows the execution of real-time broadcasting services more efficiently. This service blends Intelsat's space and ground infrastructure with SIS LIVE's uPod TM to support web-based scheduling and transmission of live standard and high definition video, as well as voice and Internet communications. The uPod is uplinking SD, HD and data feeds via dedicated Intelsat satellite capacity for the majority of the 106-day Torch Relay. The tour is visiting 1,037 communities during its 28,000-mile (45,000 kilometer) journey as it parallels the path of the northern lights. Video feeds are being downlinked by broadcasters throughout North America, including Canadian Television (CTV) - the host broadcaster, The Canadian Tourist Board, and local TV stations.
In addition to uplinking traditional TV feeds, SIS LIVE's Intelsat ® uPod TM is providing a high-speed data connection to transmit massive quantities of high quality still images for access by the global print media community. At press time, over 3200 media outlets, from Russia to Australia, were subscribed to ServerDam (www.serverdam.com), resulting in over three times the number of expected downloads.
"We needed to insure that the world travels with the Torch – every day and every step of the way", said Roger Williams, President of IMF and Executive Producer of its Torch Relay coverage. "Edited stills and produced video packages of the Torch Relay are sent to SIS LIVE's ® uPod TM, which transmits the HD and SD video and data feeds to Intelsat's dedicated satellite for live download to North American broadcasters, as well as to ServerDam, from which Torch photos and video packages are distributed to accredited media outlets and registered journalists worldwide." 
"The Torch Relay Tour is a perfect illustration of SIS LIVE's unique capabilities," added Meynell. "Utilizing Intelsat's satellite and teleport infrastructure, we are able to provide a high-speed data link to transmit the substantial amount of data the event organizers need to ingest into the server in Vancover. Intelsat's Mountainside Teleport in Maryland will downlink the data and fiber it back to Vancouver."
The Torch Relay has been a significant part of the Games since 1938 and reflects the culture of its host country. The 2010 tour is visiting every Canadian province and territory, including some of the most pristine and stunning landscapes on the planet, Alert, Nunavut - the northernmost permanently inhabited community in the world, and119 Aboriginal communities.12,000 Torchbearers will help carry the flame to its final destination at the BC Place Station in Vancouver, BC.
The Games will be held from Feb. 12 to 28 in Vancouver and Whistler, B.C.

Cobalt and reg; Digital Targets Need for Multiple Video Feeds with openGear and reg; 9905 MPx Multi-Channel Processor

Cobalt® Digital, an industry-leading designer and manufacturer of award-winning edge devices for live video production and master control, and a founding partner in the openGear® initiative, has answered the need for handling and processing multiple video feeds with its 9905-MPx multi-channel processor. The 9905-MPx is a next-generation advanced scaler/frame openGear synchronizer developed in direct response to customer needs for a single module that supports four independent signal paths. The card was highlighted during a press briefing held virtually on October 6th and hosted by Suzana Brady, Cobalt’s SVP Worldwide Sales & Marketing, who noted that the 9905-MPx was developed in response to customer requests for increased density, unprecedented multi-input support, and enhanced flexibility. The event also featured presentations by Dr. Ciro Noronha, EVP of Engineering, and Ryan Wallenberg, VP of Engineering. The 9905-MPx, an audio/video processor for baseband digital signals, is capable of handling up to four independent 3G signals in a single, dense, cost-effective package that provides all common broadcast processing functions without any quality compromises. The card includes individual up/down/cross conversion scalers that are specifically designed for broadcast video formats, with full ARC control suitable for conversions to/from 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios. The multi-path design offers discrete AES and MADI audio embedding/routing/mixing/de-embedding to any of the four processing paths. Standard 3D LUT features and available color correction accommodate SDR and HDR processing for downstream HDR systems, on a per-channel basis. The card also supports per-channel logo insertion, as well as ancillary data insertion/extraction.
