PanAmSat to provide HD, SD World Cup satellite backhaul

PanAmSat has booked more than 15,000 hours of video transmission time for more than 15 global customers for the 2006 World Cup.

Taking place in Germany June 9 - July 9, the World Cup will be beamed around the world by PASport, PanAmSat's global broadcast services network. The company sees the event as a way to leverage its HDTV offerings on a global scale, according to PASport Broadcast Services vice president Catherine Palaia.

PanAmSat's PASport network offers a completely integrated and managed network of global satellite capacity, dedicated terrestrial fiber and on-site special event support services.

The PASport team will use nine satellites — PAS-1R, PAS-2, PAS-3R, PAS-4, PAS-8, PAS-9, PAS-12, Galaxy 3C and Galaxy 4R — to deliver 34 standard-definition channels and five high-definition channels of World Cup coverage. Through these satellites, PanAmSat will deliver the games to fans in the Americas, Europe, Asia, Australia and South Africa.
