Race day, the circuit is filled with the 'Tifosi' for supporting Ferrari at Monza, Italy.
The Dutch satellite uplink company Multi-Link Holland is responsible for all Formula 1 EBU (European Broadcasting Union) transmissions. This company travels the world since 2004 for the Formula 1. You can regonice them easily by their green uplink dishes. Since 2004 they produce satellite uplinks at the Formula 1 for many broadcasters, RTL Netherlands, RTL+ Germany, ORF Austria, Sky Italia, Ferrari TV, ViaSat Sweden and more. They will give us an inside look through the whole season in what they must achieve on every location they land with their equipment, starting this weekend in Melbourne Australia and ending 25 november in Brazil. At this last race in Brazil we will do a special report about this company on the Interlagos circuit.

"Monza.... this is the last race with our both trailers and the black uplink-van for this season" , Gerben of Multi-Link Holland is telling us.
Tv Compound Monza, Italy. Uplink & production trucks with in front the Black Uplink-Van.
Gerben "At Monza the race-circuit lies in a big park and so does the TV compound. There are many trees on and around the TV compound. It is always difficult with SNG's (uplink trucks) where to position. Last year we stood with our green trailer near the trees and we were able to point our dishes just over them, but as these same trees have grown past 12 months it was this time too critical to achieve a good signal on satellite. But luckily we could get another place for our trailers".

Gerben "We are here in Monza with the same setup as at the last race in Belgium, Spa Francorchamp. So the green triple dish trailer for EBU, the white trailer for TV Globo Brazil and the black uplink-van for the German broadcaster ZDF. Very international and always a mix of languages, English, German, Portuguese and Dutch."

Gerben "Sunday evening the trailers drive already to the Netherlands home base where we will select the needed equipment for overseas and packing for the rest of the F1 season in which is also Fly-away. Next wednesday at the end of the day the stuff picked up and shipped to Singapore already, so we have not any moment to sit down.
Next race will take place in Singapore , the Sintel Singapore GranPrix 2012 on the 23th of september".
