Arqiva provides fiber connectivity, uplinking for RUSH HD

VOOM HD Networks has chosen Arqiva to provide fiber connectivity and uplinking of RUSH HD, VOOM’s 24/7 HD channel devoted to extreme sports and adrenaline action.

The channel launched April 7 on BSkyB’s digital satellite platform, the UK’s most popular digital pay-television service. RUSH HD is a 24/7 HD channel, delivered in 1080i high-definition format with Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound.

The signal for the 15Mb MPEG-4 1080i format HD channel is sent via fiber from Rainbow Network Communications Broadcasting & Technology Centre in New York to Arqiva’s teleport facilities in Chalfont Grove, UK, where the feed is multiplexed and uplinked onto Arqiva’s Eurobird satellite capacity for broadcast on the Sky platform.
