Atlantic Video uplinks HD simulcast to U.S. theaters
Atlantic Video, a full-service digital broadcast, film production and post-production facility on the East Coast, in March distributed a 90-minute HD simulcast promoting the separation of church and state to select U.S. movie theaters via satellite using the services of Genesis Networks.
Genesis Networks provided Atlantic Video with a full-time, turnkey 20Mb/s HD simplex video circuit solution for connectivity from the company's operating center in Washington, D.C., to Crawford Communications in Atlanta. The service included encoding, uplink, all required video and audio transmission hardware, monitoring and technical support.
Atlantic Video turned to Genesis Networks for the distribution services because the facility was looking for “a reliable, cost-effective method” to deliver the programming nationwide, said Bethel Dudt, project manager for Atlantic Video.
