GlobeCast delivers 2004 Tour de France world feed via satellite

Satellite services company GlobeCast used nine satellite newsgathering (SNG) trucks to provide live feeds of the Tour de France for event organizer ASO (Amaury Sport Organisation), EBU (the European Broadcasting Union), francetélévisions and Intelsat on behalf of OLN (Outdoor Life Network).

GlobeCast’s SNG teams provided satellite and microwave trucks to transmit world feed footage from location to mobile studio facilities located at the finish line in Paris. Société Française de Production (SFP) shot the feed on behalf of world feed producer francetélévisions. Sixteen channels were available from the GlobeCast field SNG units, which also included local networks feeds.

From the finish line studio, fiber carried the produced world feed signal to four Globecast stationary SNG trucks, each one dedicated to ASO, EBU, francetélévisions and Intelsat for OLN.
