February was a very busy
month at UniSat. Between the Winter Olympic Games and award shows, UniSat
provided complete D1 serial digital (4:2:2) uplink for ESPN at the 2002 WGA
Accenture Match Play Championship at La Costa Spa and Resort in Carlsbad, CA.
UniSat's services included dual path digital KU satellite transmission of the
show. UniSat also provided for a backhaul serial digital downlink, network
return, component Betacam SP playout and transmission of NHK's high definition
ENG material. The week long event featured some of golf's best, including Tiger
Woods and Phil Mickelson. Winning his first PGA tour title, Kevin Sutherland
defeated Scott McCarron to take the $1 million purse.
