International satellite transmission and video production company TV2GO uplinkedSuper Bowl XLII earlier this month to broadcasters in Europe and Asia in HD using FOR-A’s FRC-7000 frame rate converter.

They included England’s BSkyB, SkyItalia, Russia’s NTV+, Diasat in Denmark, Belgium’s Telinet, FOX Sports Turkey, Yes TV in Israel, Canal Plus in Poland, ARD in Germany, Canal+ in Spain, PCCW and AGV in Hong Kong, SMG in Shanghai and CCTV in China.
