Amarin TV upgrades its LiveU devices for Thai election

Thailand-based Amarin TV covered Thailand’s general election last month with LiveU’s LU600 and compact LU300 HEVC live video solutions. The company has been using LiveU’s technology for the last two years, covering stories such as the boys cave rescue in the Chiang Rai province, but decided to improve the devices to the top-grade to follow the campaign train and cover the Election Day.

According to the press release, the new technology, provided by the local dealer Smart Broadcast Solution, ensures “the highest video performance while using available bandwidth in the most efficient way”.

Cheewapat Nathalang, CTO of Amarin TV, explained how the broadcaster is implementing LiveU’s solutions: “LiveU has transformed the way we cover news, enabling us to be far more 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, backed up by the excellent local support and service provided by Smart Broadcast”.

“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. With proven success worldwide, we’re confident that our HEVC solutions offer the best cellular transmission options in the market” added Yaal Eshel, VP Sales at LiveU.
