China Unicom and its wholly owned North American based subsidiary, China Unicom Americas, is providing the video broadcast services for the upcoming 2010 Vancouver Winter Games from Canada to China. The video transmission services are providing the people in China with full coverage of the Games that began on February 12th and will end with the closing ceremonies on February 28th.    

Multiple low-latency, high-speed, trans-pacific bandwidth connections have been installed between Beijing and the China Unicom Americas operations centers in Los Angeles and New York. At these operations centers we interconnect with our Canadian partner and extend the facilities to the Vancouver venue. To ensure reliability, the end-to-end transmission paths are completely isolated and diversely routed providing service continuity throughout the Games.

"We are delighted to be providing the video transmission facilities from Canada to China for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games. Work for these services began years ago with our partners in China and Canada and it is with a great deal of pride that we are now enjoying the results of all that work. We have extensive experience and a successful track record with both the Summer and Winter Games, most recently, providing the video transmission services for the 2008 Beijing Summer Games," said Mr. Yitao Wu, President of China Unicom Americas.
