Corriere della Sera of Milan Italy
The leading Italian newspaper, Corriere della Sera, wanted to support the Italian fans of the 1984 Summer Olympics both in Italy and the US. They worked with Intelsat, Western Union, Richo, and TDC/MAI to implement a very innovative solution. When they composed a sports page in Milan, they put it into a Richo PressFax machine connected by satellite to Richo Sunnyvale California. A photo negative of the page was made and driven to a printing plant in San Francisco. There the sports section of the paper was printed and then flown to LA. The time difference between LA and Milan allowed them same day delivery to the Italian fans at the Olympics.
