Danmon Group announces the completion of Scandinavia's first UHD television channel.
Viasat is based in Stockholm and part of the MTG Group.
The new Viasat UHD Channel will transmit selected live sport events in Ultra High Definition to viewers throughout the Nordic region starting with the Rio Olympics, as Viasat is the official Rio Olympics 2016 broadcaster.
Viasat will transmit their UHD channel via the SES-5 satellite to ViaSat customers throughout Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland.
At the same time, Danmon Group built an additional HD Sports channel which is branded as "Viasat Sport Premium."
Both projects were coordinated through the local Danmon Sweden office and implemented by Danmon Systems. They included three new rooms: UHD editing and control, voiceover and HD Premium Sports Control.
There was also an extensive upgrade of Viasat's existing DHD audio mixer and Imagine Platinum video router, as well as a rebuild of the Pebble Beach Neptune automation system.
Building and testing were completed by Danmon in just over a month, on time and on budget and the new channels went on air at the start of August 2016.
