In an industry dominated by multinationals, we are proud to be British and pay all our taxes in the UK. Arena holds contracts with the nation's major broadcasters to provide coverage of events, music, large studio shows and sport. Arena is a Telegraph 1000 business that has remained in continuous family ownership for approaching 30 years.
Ultra HD Arena continues to pioneer by introducing the world's first IP-based UHD High Dynamic Range OB fleet. Our new triple-expands (OBX, Y & Z) all feature ground breaking UHD/HD/SD multicast technology. They are based around a powerful IP core developed in association with Grass Valley and Cisco. This approach is much more flexible than traditional baseband. With IP technology data runs over fibre optic cables, whereas Quad-HD required 4 HD signals over copper cables bundled together to create a single UHD image.
We operate key contracts with BT Sport for English football including the Premier League & FA Cup; with ITV for England Internationals and Six Nations Rugby and with the BBC for the FA Cup. We also cover shows as diverse as Glastonbury, Springwatch, The Royal Variety, Songs of Praise, Trooping the Colour and Festival of Remembrance.
We are linked with numerous other well known events including the Commonwealth Games, the FIFA World Cup, the Rugby World Cup, the London Olympics, the UEFA Euro Championships, the Aviva Rugby Premiership, the Coronation Gala, the Royal Wedding, the Diamond Jubilee, Ant & Dec's Push the Button, BBC Children in Need Rocks, Channel 4 Crufts, Football on Five and the Wimbledon Tennis Championships.
