PostMon Jun 02, 2014 3:36 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced that Tokyo based satellite broadcasting and pay TV station WOWOW used Blackmagic Design’s Teranex 2D Processor and Smart Videohub router to live stream Grand Slam professional tennis matches.

WOWOW is the first private satellite broadcasting station in Japan providing three HD TV channels offering various content such as films, dramas, sports and music to their viewers. Part of WOWOW is a service called “WOWOW Members on Demand,” which allows subscribers to have access to video on demand and simulcasts of content via the Internet on a computer, tablet or smart phone. WOWOW is now using Teranex 2D Processors and Smart Videohub routers to live stream popular sports events for this service.

One of the most popular programs recently provided by WOWOW in which Teranex 2D Processors were used was the recent Grand Slam tennis tournament, which includes the Australian Open, French Open and US Open. For the tournament, WOWOW selects matches that feature popular Japanese tennis players and other top tennis players from these tournaments for its on air content. WOWOW also live streams that on air content so that subscribers can watch from mobile devices or computers via the Internet, in addition to being able to watch extra games from the Grand Slam which cannot be seen on air for live streaming, allowing tennis fans to watch more games.
