GlobeCast Signs 3 year Contract for Delivery of UEFA Champions League
Europe’s most prestigious club competition will be distributed to 26 territories via GlobeCast’s content delivery network, with facilities on offer including downlink, uplink, capacity, encoding and encryption as well as a multi-lingual helpdesk.
GlobeCast will enhance its high quality service provision to UEFA by transmitting a greater volume of matches at a higher bandwidth (24Mbps) than ever before, offering broadcasters a higher quality of signal and a greater choice of matches.
Work towards the 2006-2007 UEFA Champions League will come at the end of a busy summer for GlobeCast, who offered a range of services to leading broadcasters at the football World Cup in Germany. Facilities for both rights and non-rights holders included on site production, uplink, space segment and transmission for both SD and HDTV.
