LiveU Technology Selected For The 2023 Pacific Games

The 2023 Pacific Games in the Solomon Islands were successfully broadcast live to viewers in numerous participating countries and beyond using LiveU's IP-video EcoSystem.

LiveU's technology was selected for its cost-effective and flexible technology, underpinned by LRT™ (LiveU Reliable Transport), enabling live broadcasts to be distributed with the highest resiliency to a disparate array of broadcasters and other takers across the Pacific Islands as well as Australia and New Zealand.

The LiveU team was present on-site throughout the games, providing engineering and operational support.

Established in 1963 and held on a four-yearly rotation, the Games are designed to strengthen bonds between the Pacific Islands and surrounding nations through sport. The games span 24 sports, including archery, athletics, basketball, football, judo, and rugby.

Historically the world feed was transmitted via satellite and produced centrally with selective content. The organizers turned to LiveU for cost-effective and reliable IP distribution over the open internet using LiveU Matrix's fully managed service with multiple feeds, encompassing all the content, produced at the different venues.

In addition, LiveU's compact 5G LU300S encoders were deployed for point-to-point transmission, LiveU Ingest for cloud recording on-site and the rackmount LiveU Transceivers for uplinks and point-to-point transmission.

Paul Vunituraga, Broadcast Manager, Pacific Games 2023, said: "These games mean so much to so many people – for many of the competing territories, it's the only time their teams compete internationally. We were looking for a cost-effective and efficient alternative to satellite and were excited by the opportunities enabled using LiveU's IP technology. The results speak for themselves! Despite the challenging environments on the island, the quality and scope of the live production remained at the highest level throughout the games. We could focus on covering all the different sports with engaging live content, while expanding our reach to new takers with full peace of mind."
