What we do

We take live content from live operas, ballets, concerts, theatre and sports, and deliver it by satellite to audiences in cinemas across the globe.

We are market leaders for the delivery of live cinema events with many years’ experience.

How we do it

Our service starts at the live venue, where we can provide production services to capture the content, or receive the final feed and connect it to a satellite news gathering (SNG) uplink vehicle. From there we transmit to a suitable satellite for direct reception in cinemas. In addition, we receive the content at our dedicated Master Control Room (MCR) in the UK teleport facility, where the feed is checked for quality assurance and re-transmitted to other regions across the globe.
