Vatican Media, Globecast, Rai, Eutelsat and Sony have teamed up to deliver Tivùsat’s live coverage of Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve.
The transmission, available in 4K UHD, will be delivered from St. Peter’s Basilica from 9.30pm on 24th December.
The five recruited companies are said to be providing the ‘required resources’ to bring the event to Italian homes in the highest quality possible.
The event will be broadcast simultaneously on Rai 1 and on Rai 1 HD via digital terrestrial TV and satellite, as well across the world through the usual distribution used by the Vatican.
Alessandro Alquati, general manager, Globecast Italia, said: " Globecast is honoured and proud to be involved in the Holy See's Segreteria per la Comunicazione, working together with a powerful team of technological partners.”
