Microspace Communications has teamed with the Panthers Television Network (PTVN), the Carolina Panthers supplemental programming group, to transition their network from SD to HD effective this coming season. PTVN produces weekly Panthers televisions shows, video newsfeeds, live press conferences and custom live shots to a network of television stations in several states. This move completes the team’s final stage of HD conversion which began with the NFL and major broadcast networks entry into HD television distribution in 1998.
According to Joe Amor, GM and VP at Microspace, “We are extremely pleased to continue our long relationship with the Panthers organization. It’s very exciting to play a part in their transition to a full HD television network.”
Microspace Communications supports one of the largest satellite based business networks in the world. On a daily basis, Microspace delivers video, audio and data to over a quarter of a million locations throughout the US, Europe and Latin America. Organizations of all types depend on the cost effective and reliable content delivery services provided by Microspace.
“We have worked closely with Microspace Communications for almost 15 years. It was a given that we would turn to them for PTVN’s transition to HD. This is a major enhancement for Panthers fans across the two Carolinas, and Microspace has provided tremendous guidance and a workable solution” said Greg Brannon, Executive Producer of TV Broadcasting and Digital Media for the Carolina Panthers.
