TVU Networks, portable live electronic news gathering (ENG) broadcast solutions provider, has anounced that YTN, South Korea's leading 24 hour news network has selected TVUPack to expand its live newsgathering operations.
Since 1993, YTN, a 24 hour news network headquartered in Seoul, has worked to build one of Korea's most respected newsgathering organizations. With a large newsgathering operation that includes more than a dozen news vehicles, YTN was looking for a mobile broadcast solution to give the network the flexibility to go live from more locations and help increase the speed of getting news to air.
After evaluating a number of other cellular uplink products, YTN selected TVUPack to supplement its live ENG efforts due to TVUPack's reliable performance, superior picture quality, ease of use, and affordability.
"We conducted extensive testing of a number of products before selecting TVUPack," said Hyoungyill Park, professional engineer, YTN. "We selected TVUPack because it provides the best video quality of any of the solutions that we tested. TVUPack is also easier to use in the field and is able to transmit video with just the push of a button. Additionally, the TVUPack has been a very economical solution, allowing us to save money in our mobile newsgathering efforts."
For YTN, one of the biggest benefits of the TVUPack has been increasing the speed of which the network is able to deliver live news to viewers. "TVUPack has changed the way we can deliver live coverage of fast breaking news stories to our viewers. Since deploying TVUPack, we have been able to get quality shots from the scene faster than other broadcasters," said Park.
YTN has also been impressed with TVU's industry leading support team. "TVU's quick and continuous customer support has been very good, helping us resolve any issues that we encounter with speed and professionalism. Also, if we need to cover events abroad, such as the London Olympics, we're able to use TVUPack from anywhere in the world," Park explained.
Already in use by hundreds of leading broadcast organizations around the world, the TVUPack family of products gives broadcasters satellite and microwave TV truck functionality in a lightweight, portable and untethered form. TVUPack is the original one button operation backpack, is simple to use and provides broadcasters with low-latency, HD-quality signal that enables them to broadcast live at any time and from any location. The TVUPack family of products has been used to deliver professional-quality live HD footage of a number of important events including the London Olympics, U.S. presidential election primaries, the World Cup, the Japan tsunami and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's recent tour of the Middle East and North Africa.
