Aldea Advances Fiber-Optics Transmission for Sports Distribution
The Sports Video Group is pleased to welcome Aldea as a corporate sponsor. Established in 2000, the company provides international media-transmission services.
Building on strong technical expertise in broadcast and telecommunications, it has advanced the use of fiber-optics transmission for distribution of major sports events into the Americas and has expanded to build and operate the first Pan-American network for broadcast services. Aldea offers occasional-use and full-time circuits, special-event coverage, and value-added services for sports, news, and entertainment.
Among its points of presence are major broadcasters and numerous distribution platforms for satellite, cable, and Internet. Live transmission for sports leagues and events via fiber is at the core of Aldea’s business and expertise. The company is a well-established and respected distributor for such sports events as La Liga from Spain, the NBA, ATP tennis, Champions League, Copa Libertadores, Copa Sudamericana, and various South American football leagues, among others. It is also a regular provider for the Olympics and FIFA World Cup.
Based in Montreal, Aldea offers broadcasters, content owners, distributors, and rightholders solutions tailored to their specific requirements for international transmission of live sports events, including design, engineering, project management, installation, and operation for all services. When necessary, Aldea fiber services are complemented by the assets of key partners, such as satellite, teleport, and production services. The company also offers in-house store-and-forward capabilities to provide turnkey solutions.
Aldea’s fiber video network covers 13 countries in the Americas with extension in some of Europe’s main capitals. The company recently expanded its operations in Brazil, where it has been operating for a number of years.
Aldea services are operated from a centralized NOC that acts as booking center and provides a single point of contact for customer support and services management. With a multicultural and multilingual team, Aldea can serve customers in their own language.
