Switzerland-based broadcaster, Canal 9, recently deployed AVIWEST's DMNG PRO180 video uplink system and the DMNG APPs mobile application for coverage of the local elections held in Valais.

Last month, Valais residents from the 141 municipalities voted on town council officials and elected a president and vice presidents for the next four years. In order to engage with the audience on election day, Canal 9 organised an operation that involved broadcasting 10 hours of TV interviews over a two-week period.

Canal 9 broadcast 93 duplexes, representing 93 two-minute interviews, through the DMNG APPs. Due to AVIWEST SafeStream technology, the broadcaster's remote journalists transmitted live HD videos over bonded 3G/4G and Wi-Fi connections using their smartphones. Another two-hour interview was streamed live with minimal latency over an internet connection utilising the DMNG PRO180, which was installed in Canal 9's newsgathering vehicle.

The incoming streams were managed by the AVIWEST receiver, decoder, and distribution platform, enabling Canal 9 to provide viewers with real-time updates, keeping them informed about the election results.

Joël Antonin, Co-CTO at Canal 9, said: "We wanted to meet candidates, follow the voting and counting process as closely as possible, and film citizens' reactions. The AVIWEST solution offered us an affordable and simple way to stream live high-quality videos from any location across the canton of Valais, even on cellular networks. The DMNG equipment was perfectly integrated in our production system and enabled us to deliver more dynamic TV programs, making the election coverage a success."

Florian Kolmer, Sales and Business Development at AVIWEST, added: "With the DMNG PRO transmitters and DMNG APP, Canal 9 had a powerful solution that expanded its transmission capabilities. By enabling flawless live streaming, the DMNG system fully met Canal 9's production requirements. The AVIWEST mobile application helped each journalist with a smartphone to deliver real-time HD pictures and video directly to the TV channel's production system, unquestionably meeting its current and future mobile journalism needs."
