As New Zealand’s premier DSNG link provider, Kordia provides both HD and SD links throughout New Zealand and the South Pacific.

We’re involved in providing links for most Australian and New Zealand TV networks, such as the local HD sports linking we provide for SKY TV (NZ). We do this either by satellite or our fibre network that runs the length of New Zealand. We have also provided links for many other clients locally and offshore, including APTN, Al Jazeera, CNN, Reuters and EBU. We’re happy to adapt from a short-notice news link to longer-term assignments as required.

Kordia also regularly links out to Australia, Europe and the USA with onward pass available from Sydney Eurovision Fibre (or AsiaSat 2), USA Fibre, Satellite and BT London (or TWI London) HD linking.


Kordia currently owns three fully redundant DSNG Vans with AVL-Ku DriveAway antennas and two 1.9 metre Advent Ku/C band Flyaway dishes. Our vans are equipped with UPS’s and portable generators, with full monitoring HD/SD and well-trained operators.

We have 54 MHz of available satellite space on Optus for use. We’ll provide very good rates for customers, especially those with longer-term events.

Only the best and most modern equipment makes the grade at Kordia. This is maintained and manned by our experienced staff.
Currently we have three fully redundant Ku SNG vans with configurable production/unilateral space. We also have two flyway units.

We provide MPEG 4 HD and SD encoders and are able to do multiple services and configurations including 5 percent roll off. This allows for multiple audio channels and Dolby E getting maximum use of bandwidth and minimising satellite costs.

With our sophisticated equipment we can offer multiple or a single carrier from each unit. We have receivers at clients receive points to offer complete linking solutions. Our equipment is very scalable and we can accommodate all requirements for both small and large jobs, this includes corporate work, and multi-production broadcast jobs.

Wireless camera links are available with or without camera to enable ease of deployment and increased coverage ability at uplink location.

Ability to Operate on Optus and Intelsat satellites.
