Arquiva's Distribution of Masters' Series Goes to Court

ATP Arqiva is providing TV broadcast distribution services for the 2008 ATP Masters Series on behalf of ATP Media. Arqiva has already provided distribution services for seven of the tournament's 10 international legs, most recently in Cincinnati this August.

Arqiva Arqiva currently supports global distribution of ATP Masters Series by providing satellite capacity, turnaround, downlinking and on-pass; reaching globally across Europe, the Middle East, and the Americas; and their dedicated help desk provides technical support from Arqiva MCR.

ATP Media produces live coverage of every match from every ATP Masters Series event, providing its broadcast partners with up to five live feeds including a fully produced World feed, a News feed and dedicated court coverage of the main and second court action. These feeds are multiplexed and uplinked directly from each venue.

Then the multiplexed broadcast signal is delivered to ATP Media's broadcast partners using Arqivas lease space on Eutelsat W1 for Europe and the Middle East and Intelsat-9 for the Americas. Arqiva's Winchester teleport provides the turnaround service between the two satellites and also passes the feeds via a number of dedicated fiber links to London's BT Tower. Arqiva, on behalf of ATP Media, also operates a dedicated help desk in the heart of Arqiva's Winchester MCR which provides broadcasters with immediate technical support to ensure a smooth transmission.
