Danish Broadcaster Turns To LiveU

LiveU has said its technology is being utilised by Danish broadcaster TV East to enhance its newsgathering operations.

The deal, which was overseen by LiveU's Danish partner Avit, sees TV East using three LiveU LU500 backpack units as well as an Xtender remote antenna solution. LiveU's Xtender increases network reception, providing additional resiliency for live video transmission in extreme scenarios, and can be vehicle or tripod-mounted. LiveU's Central management platform has also been deployed for easy preview and remote control.

The broadcaster has also taken delivery of two Panasonic PX270 cameras with integrated LiveU software, allowing LiveU Central remote camera control capabilities and streaming directly from the camera, to provide additional options in the field.

TV East uses the technology for a variety of applications, including up to 10 minutes of live content (from up to three LU500s) during daily news shows as well as for a weekly 30-minute live transmission of its culture show. Content has been broadcast live from ships and helicopters on more than one occasion. TV East has also had several two five-hour transmissions from different various sporting and cultural events using multiple LU500s to transmit to the TV station, where the programme is produced and aired live.

Kasper Thor Larson, Head of Technology with TV East, said: "Editorial management wanted a bonded cellular solution for our broadcasts. However, previous tests with other solutions showed they were not stable enough for our demands. When we started to test LiveU, we didn't miss a single live event during the test period. The LiveU backpack is ideal for us. One of the tests was shooting from a helicopter over a festival with 15,000 people: this was from a distant location with weak coverage. With LiveU, it was a perfect live transmission. After that, management decided to terminate the test phase and ordered an uplink backpack right away: they knew LiveU could give them what they wanted."

Ronen Artman, VP Marketing, LiveU, added: "We are very pleased that the robustness of our technology along with its portability was so quickly recognised by TV East. Transmission stability is essential to what we do and is why broadcasters are so confident using our technology live and from otherwise impossible locations."
