PSSI leverages C-band spectrum to engineer challenging transmission of and lsquo;The Match II and rsquo;

With rainy weather all day and no fiber availability on-site, “The Match II” charity golf event presented a significant live broadcast transmission challenge. To support this event, which turned out to be the most-watched golf telecast in the history of cable television, PSSI Global Services provided several primary and backup paths, as well as data and internet via satellite, using C-band transmission vehicles.

Live from the Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Florida, “The Match II” featured Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady in an event that raised $20 million for COVID-19 relief. Attracting a peak of 6.3 million viewers, “The Match II” aired on four channels in the U.S. and internationally on CNN International.
