YahLive, the UAE based satellite operator, announced that it has allocated both satellite capacity and a number of HD channels to provide broadcasters with connectivity and service, from London to the Middle East, to facilitate their TV coverage of the forthcoming London 2012 Olympics.
This year's 2012 Summer Olympics will be hosted by the City of London at the New Olympic stadium in East London, with an array of Olympic events taking place in & around some 30 different UK locations.
For this Global event, YahLive is able to offer satellite capacity and transmission solutions at commercially attractive tariffs on a wide and flexible range of professional applications from London UK.
Collaborating with its European strategic partners, YahLive will provide local connections and uplink facilities, including DVB/S2 MPGE4 encoding for satellite broadcasting services to the Middle East via YahLive's Y1A satellite.
"Limited capacity and end-to-end HD service solutions are now available, we therefore invite customers to meet YahLive at Cabsat, the Middle East's largest digital media and satellite expo, to develop a custom designed solution, tailored for their precise needs," said Eddy Frankland, CCO of YahLive
"Our orbital location of 52.5E, provides an ideal line of sight for direct reception within the MENA region. Using YahLive's unique connectivity, broadcasters can transmit their Olympics TV coverage on a demand basis or HD channel on a 24/7 basis for the duration of the Olympic Games," continued Mr. Frankland.
