A KU Band uplink truck will be on site for the event.

Following the event, the truck will be made available for media to do live hits and feed tape.

Satellite airtime for both the live event and the live hit/feed window will be supplied by the event organizers in order to minimize turnaround time between multiple media outlets feeding tape, therefore there is no need for media to make their own satellite airtime bookings.

The uplink truck is equipped with Beta Sp, Beta SX, and DVCAM/DVC Pro/MiniDV playback capabilities as well as frame sync for direct camera inputs. Sat & landline phone will be available for IFB & coord.
