Republic TV, an Indian news broadcaster, has deployed LiveU’s LU600 HEVC portable transmission units to expand its live transmission fleet. The LU600 was chosen for its hardware-based HEVC encoding capabilities and its ability to deliver HD video with  bandwidth efficiency and low power consumption.

Sudheer Narayanan, VP - Technology, Republic World, said, “With HEVC encoding becoming the clear industry standard, it was crucial for us to immediately upgrade ourselves. We wanted a solution and the LU600 HEVC device checked off all the requirements on our checklist. As a result, going with LiveU was an easy choice.”

Ranjit Bhatti, director - South Asia region, LiveU, commented, “We’re delighted that Republic continues to put its trust in our technology and are thankful for their continued patronage. LiveU has been a tried and tested solution for Republic TV and so we were an automatic preferred choice for their new Hindi channel - R. Bharat.”

The LU600 HEVC delivers high video quality and bitrate in the market, with fastest file transfer and lowest delay. When compared to H.264-based encoders, the LU600 HEVC provides the same video quality while using about half the bandwidth, or offers improved video quality wherever original H.264 bitrate is maintained. Using a full hardware HEVC encoder is very efficient on power consumption and allows the unit’s internal battery to last for over four hours of live transmission.
