LiveU HEVC solution selected by TVBS Taiwan for cycling, marathons and more
Taiwan’s leading national broadcaster, TVBS Media Inc., has selected LiveU’s flagship LU600 HEVC solution for live news gathering and sports coverage, deploying multiple units around the country to cover breaking and developing news and different kinds of sports events.
TVBS has already used LiveU to cover the Tour de Taiwan cycling tournament and New Taipei city Wan Jin Shi Marathon, with camera operators streaming live from the back of a motorbike. Service and support is being provided by LiveU’s local partner, Nytpe.
TVBS tested leading cellular transmission brands for quality, reliability and cost-effectiveness and LiveU led in every category. Specifically, the LU600 HEVC solution showed greater stability and reliability and the best video quality in low bit-rate transmission conditions. TVBS found that LiveU’s backpack has a good design and is very functional; for example, it has the longest battery life of 4 hours and is the only one with a rain cover. LiveU Central, LiveU’s unified management platform, also proved to be more intuitive and easier-to-use.
Yaal Eshel, LiveU’s VP Sales, said: “We are very proud that TVBS, the leading national broadcaster in Taiwan, has selected LiveU technology. TVBS performed professional tests of the technology in extreme use cases and we’re happy to be able to meet their strict requirements. We are committed to continue providing innovative products and close support to our customers in Taiwan.”
