Túpac Katari satellite broadcasts 2018 South American Games in HD

The Bolivian Space Agency (ABE in Spanish), through the Túpac Katari satellite, and the state-owned channel Bolivia TV are broadcasting in high definition the XI Cochabamba South American Games for the 14 countries participating in the sporting event.
The director of ABE, Iván Zambrana, said that Bolivia is one of the few countries in the region that can afford to transmit with its own satellite the South American Games that take place in its territory. The executive explained that Bolivia TV deployed eight mobile units that move through the venues that have the capacity to generate signals in HD. “Through the satellite, the eight signals generated are transmitted simultaneously for the entire coverage area,” Zambrana said, according to the Prensa Latina news agency.
The Túpac Katari satellite was launched in late 2013 and began commercial operations in April 2014. The project required an initial investment of USD 302 million. The South American Games in Bolivia began on May 26 and will run until June 8.
