Formula 1: Fiber optics in pole position

Formula 1: Fiber optics in pole position
During live TV coverage, there is no second chance. According to this adage, Presteigne Charter, a leading equipment supplier for televised broadcasts always offers its customers state-ofthe- art technology. During the transmission of Formula 1 races, fiber optic cables from HUBER+SUHNER are on the grid.

In 2010, SIS LIVE, the largest European company for outdoor TV broadcasting, commissioned Presteigne Charter to provide the equipment for eight Formula 1 races to be shown on the BBC. The races in Australia, Malaysia, China, Bahrain, Singapore, Japan, Brazil and Abu Dhabi presented a number of broadcasting challenges. Moreover, the equipment had to be transported quickly from one location to the next.
 
HUBER+SUHNER joined the fray in the spring of 2010, when Presteigne Charter had to replace an RF connector at short notice. HUBER+SUHNER Singapore was able to convince the Presteigne Charter engineers that fiber optics are indispensable in order to transmit high-quality, full-bandwidth HD. The company was immediately impressed by the flexibility, reliability, durability, mobility and performance of the FO Masterline Mobile System from HUBER+SUHNER. In 2011, the Formula 1 transmissions for the spectators and crews at the race track were already being screened in HD quality using fiber optic products from HUBER+SUHNER – including the night race in Singapore.
