sports and news events for our clients. Our partnership with AsiaSat to facilitate this live UHD
transmission signals the beginning of more live UHD sport events for the Asia-Pacific TV
We are very excited to bring this important match live in UHD to soccer fans in Asia. Our longterm
partnership with the EBU who is at the forefront of the technology for global live sports
