RRsat Global Communications Network, a provider of content management and global distribution services for TV and radio broadcasting, will provide its advanced playout and uplink services for HIGHTV’s entirely 3D content roster.

Headquartered in LA, HIGHTV 3D is an international, 24/7 3D family channel.

Commencing April 4, HIGHTV 3D will broadcast its full lineup of more than 450 hours of HD 3D programming, played out and distributed by RRsat over the Eurobird-9A satellite to Europe and over the MEASAT-3a satellite across Asia Pacific. Both channels will be distributed in MPEG-4 compression and DVB-S2 broadcast standard and will be played out from RRsat’s playout center using digital workflow and including the archival storage of over 4 TB of HIGHTV’s 3D material.

"RRsat is proud to continue its active involvement in the progression of 3D TV," said Koby Zontag, senior director of sales and business development at RRsat, in a statement. "We have already established RRsat’s capabilities with live 3D interactive broadcast over fiber between continents and a major European ten-day sporting event broadcast in 3D over satellite."

Through its proprietary "RRsat Global Network," composed of satellite and terrestrial fiber optic transmission capacity and the public Internet, RRsat is able to offer flexible, global distribution services for content providers.
