Catch Brazil’s WSF Forum on Satellite

Starting today, the 2005 World Social Forum will transmit (clean) international audio and video signals via satellite of the opening and closing ceremonies and the cultural shows.

There will be two simultaneous live transmissions. To synchronize the signals, one must have a parabolic antenna and an integrated receiver decoder (IRD).
