News Image
LiveU has announced that Thanthi TV, a 24-hour Tamil news television channel based in Chennai, India, is to increase its LiveU deployment to support its live newsgathering capabilities.

Thanthi TV is adding eight LU500 portable transmission units and upgrading another nine LU70s to the LU500, bringing the total count to 17 units overall.

Prasanna Jothi, COO, Thanthi TV (Metronation Chennai Television P Ltd), said: "As existing LiveU customers, we've been very satisfied with the product and service provided by LiveU's local partner, Lamhas Satellite Services. When we decided to increase our fleet of products, the LU500 was a natural choice.

"As well as being compact and user-friendly, it offers superior video performance and reliability due to its robust internal modems and proprietary antenna technology. We're discussing further expansion in 2017."

"LiveU always comes out with the latest cutting-edge technology, and we know that we can rely on it, even in remote areas. We used the LU500 to cover the recent elections in Tamil Nadu and the results were excellent," added Mr. Yuvaraj , J, Thanthi's CTO.

Powered by LiveU's multi-processor video encoding engine and weighing 1 kg (2.2 lbs), the LU500 is LiveU's flagship uplink device for professional newsgathering.

Ajay Jain, CEO, Lamhas, also said: "Technologically advanced and commercially competitive, the LU500 is the solution of choice for customers in India. This latest agreement is reflective of the service we give to the customer in cooperation with LiveU as well as the confidence in LiveU's technology in general.

"LiveU has disrupted the broadcasting market throughout India with the vast majority of broadcasters now using the technology."

LiveU owns the patent for cellular bonding for remote news gathering in the US, Europe, China and other countries. All LiveU products are based on this fourth-generation patented technology.
LiveU is presenting its full range of IP-based video uplink services and streaming solutions at BroadcastAsia16, in Singapore, Stand 5H2-04.
