Leading Thai broadcaster, Amarin TV, has reinforced its live coverage capabilities ahead of last month’s general election, with LiveU’s LU600 and LU300 HEVC live video transmission solutions. Multiple units were deployed around the country to follow the campaign trail and cover all aspects of election day itself.
Enhancing its fleet with LiveU’s hardware-based HEVC technology ensures video performance while using available bandwidth in the most efficient way. Cheewapat Nathalang, CTO, Amarin TV, said, "LiveU has transformed the way we cover news, enabling us to bemore flexible and mobile. During the boys’ rescue effort in the North, for example, we could get to places around the cave which would have been impossible with a satellite truck. Upgrading to LiveU’s HEVC technology was an obvious choice, as we ramp up our newsgathering capabilities."
Yaal Eshel, VP - Sales, LiveU, said, “Thailand is a key market in Asia for us and we’re delighted that a leading TV station Amarin TV selected LiveU’s HEVC units for its election coverage and ongoing newsgathering expansion."
LiveU has been supporting international election coverage since it was founded, providing a cost-effective, flexible solution that allows broadcasters to capture political events from multiple fixed locations and on-the-move. Over the years, LiveU has provided 24/7 live coverage of local and national elections in numerous countries, including: Austria, Croatia, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Kenya, Russia, Singapore, Spain, The Netherlands, UK and the USA.
