Pope Francis’ US visit sees AVIWEST uplink to Europe
VidOvation has announced its new AVIWEST 3G/4G bonded cellular video uplink rental services program. This should simplify live video contribution from the United States for international TV networks like TV 2 Norway and TV 2 Denmark.
Presently, TV 2 of Norway is broadcasting Pope Francis’ US visit and the 2015 UCI Road World Championships in Richmond, Virginia. Next, they broadcast the rollout of the first-ever Norwegian F-35 Lightning II military jets built on the Lockheed Martin assembly line in Fort Worth, Texas. TV 2 of Denmark has recently finished coverage of US Open Tennis and has previously used VidOvation’s rental services to broadcast the Academy Awards live.
All of these contrasting environments similarly demand quick deployment and the ability to follow rapid action while tolerating certain interferences. Such happenings are best handled by a system with diverse connections that is capable of auto-detecting the surrounding cellular wireless networks and making intelligent decisions without requiring the user’s attention. The AVIWEST DMNG PRO 3G/4G bonded cellular video system can then transmit a live HD video signal back to master control anywhere in the world
“The United States hosts many international events. Getting live video out to the rest of the world should be a streamlined process,” stated Jim Jachetta, CTO & SVP of VidOvation. “Many TV stations struggle to acquire live video content overseas. Now only one person needs to arrive on location and the proper equipment is already waiting at their hotel or on site.”
Ad hoc remote or overseas events often result in foreign broadcasters quickly requesting rental units, however, many domestic TV networks will often own several 3G/4G bonded cellular video transmission systems to keep in their arsenal for all such events.
