North American broadcasters have used the ONE CONNXT IP broadcast transport service to show The Emirates Australian Open on ONE World Sports and America ONE, and in Canada on The Score and TVA Sports.
ONE CONNXT provides real-time SD/HD content nearly anywhere in the world, and delivers either point-to-point or point-multi-point locations to satellite or fibre.

Jay Murray, president of JSM Productions, said: “The Score and TVA Sports received the Emirates Australian Open live on ONE CONNXT. This alternative technology provided Canadian viewers with a flawless live, high quality event broadcast of an exciting international golf championship.”

Ernie Schimizzi, president and GM of WVVH-TV New York, added: "Our broadcast of the Emirates Australian Open live sports event has been successfully received by our large New York television audience on Cablevision and on Verizon FiOS systems.
"Credit goes to America ONE for providing its affiliates with outstanding quality and clarity of programming. America ONE’s use of innovative technology such as ONE CONNXT to transport the live action from Australia is cutting edge and provides WVVH with an advantage in a highly competitive market."
Paul Dingwitz, CTO of ONE Media Corp, creator of the ONE CONNXT technology and service, said: “ONE CONNXT was built by television people for television distribution. The ONE CONNXT service is secure, flexible and extremely reliable. We have a robust and elastic architecture that provides our customers with high quality video and the flexibility they need in the multi-platform universe.”
