Public Authority For Radio And TV Deploys AVIWEST Solution

News Image
AVIWEST has announced that the Public Authority for Radio and TV (PART) of the Sultanate of Oman deployed a complete AVIWEST solution to broadcast live coverage of the October 2019 Majlis Al-Shura elections, which take place every four years.

PART selected the AVIWEST PRO3 Series HEVC bonded cellular transmitters, QUAD antennas, and StreamHub transceiver to broadcast live from any location, even in remote areas with limited connectivity. ApexTec served as the distributor, ensuring a seamless product deployment.

"For such an important event in the Sultanate, broadcasting live election footage with greater efficiency and simplicity was key," said Said Al Shreqi, director general of PART. "The AVIWEST solution offered us an affordable way to stream live, high-quality video successfully from any voting center in the region."

On Oct. 27, more than 700,000 Omanis voted on Shura council members, choosing from among 737 candidates. With 110 voting centers across the country, PART relied on the AVIWEST PRO3 Series to successfully deliver live HD video to Oman TV over 3G/4G networks, providing the Oman population with real-time updates and election results.

Saud Ahmed Al Harrasi, director of satellite broadcasting and links at PART, said, "Our engineering team and cameramen had a good experience with AVIWEST and were very impressed by the exceptional performance of the whole system. We look forward to making the best use of the new features and application of the system."

When on the go, PART's remote teams needed video delivery solutions that are compact and portable, ensuring they could instantly broadcast live. The latest generation of AVIWEST's HEVC bonded cellular transmitters, the PRO3 Series, provided the broadcaster with a lightweight solution that could be mounted directly on professional cameras or carried in a smartly designed backpack. Moreover, the advanced HEVC PRO3 Series enabled PART to deliver premium video quality while significantly reducing bitrates – typically a 30% decrease compared with other HEVC solutions.

"Providing a customer-centric approach and extending committed service to customers is always our priority, and we feel privileged to contribute to the Majlis Al-Shura elections," said Ahmed Aqil Al-Ibrahim, director at Apex International Technologies & Projects (ApexTec), Oman. "AVIWEST's solution has been deployed in Oman during various mission-critical applications in the past, such as the Mekunu cyclone, as well as used by PART camera teams in overseas event coverage. The user friendliness and robustness of the solution have been proven time and again."

Thanks to AVIWEST's patented and Emmy© Award-winning Safe Streams Transport (SST) protocol, PART's journalists were able to transmit live videos over bonded 3G/4G and Wi-Fi connections using PRO380 field units without having to worry about network conditions.
