PanAmSat Corporation announced Tuesday that it had signed an agreement with Japan Broadcasting Corporation (NHK) to deliver live sporting events and breaking news in high-definition (HD) format via the company's worldwide satellite and fiber network.
"A sole public broadcaster in its native Japan, NHK is utilizing the PanAmSat satellite/fiber solution for the efficient and reliable delivery of its HD programming," said Joe Wright, president and CEO, PanAmSat.

"PanAmSat now can also monitor and support HD broadcast services through its state-of-the-art teleport, advanced fiber network and HD-ready satellites. By leveraging these key elements, PanAmSat provides NHK the answer to its U.S. domestic transmission needs."

NHK will uplink news and sporting events across the U.S. via mobile satellite news gathering (SNG) vehicles to PanAmSat's domestic satellite fleet. The high-definition signals will then be downlinked to the company's Atlanta teleport, where recently installed HDTV equipment will allow PanAmSat engineers to monitor the programming content for quality assuredness.

PanAmSat will then provide the terrestrial fiber link to reach NHK's U.S. gateway in New York City.

NHK, a 50-year television veteran, has made a commitment to produce all its programming in HD format. All original NHK programming transmitted to Japan will be sent in high-definition format for broadcast on their terrestrial, cable and DTH platforms. Events including Major League Baseball and the U.S. presidential election are among the many that PanAmSat will deliver in HD to NHK's U.S. gateway in New York.
