Bainet Group enhances live news content capabilities with LiveU ecoSystem field units

The versatile Spanish production company harnesses LiveU’s portable technology for greater mobility and flexibility

Bainet Group, a Spain-based production powerhouse with a rich history spanning over three decades in TV, cinema, advertising, and online content creation, has embraced LiveU to revolutionize its live content acquisition process. Deploying 20 portable units from LiveU’s IP-video EcoSystem, Bainet Group now delivers breaking news and related stories to broadcasters and audiences with unprecedented speed and dynamism.

Founded in 1992, Bainet Group has earned a sterling reputation for pushing technological boundaries to enhance service quality for its diverse clientele. From regional broadcasters in Spain like RTVCE, EITB, and RTCM to national networks such as A3 and La Sexta, Bainet Group caters to a wide array of clients, including international production companies and corporate entities.

Sebastian Diaz, General Manager of Bainet Group in Madrid, remarked, “LiveU has been a game-changer for us. Previously, live content production posed significant challenges, especially in terms of agility and timeliness. With LiveU’s field units, we’ve significantly ramped up our live broadcasting, particularly in news coverage. We’ve transitioned from managing one live event per day to handling up to 20, equating to over 7,000 live events annually.”

Diaz underscores the reliability and robustness of LiveU’s technology, crucial for their news production services, whether for live broadcasts or content acquisition and transmission to broadcasters. “The biggest boon for us has been the mobility offered by LiveU’s backpack technology. We now have unfettered access to locations and live stories that were previously out of reach. Gone are the days of grappling with DSNG trucks, satellite connectivity woes, and logistical hassles. LiveU has eliminated these barriers, allowing us to position ourselves anywhere and transmit live signals from any location instantly.”

He also emphasizes the technology’s ability to capture stories even in extreme conditions, such as conflict zones and natural disasters, enabling Bainet Group to deliver compelling content to global audiences. “The signal stability, coupled with robust MCR monitoring, is exceptional. Combined with the cost-effectiveness compared to DSNGs and exceptional service from LiveU staff, I am thoroughly satisfied both on a technical level, ensuring seamless content delivery to broadcasters, and with the personalized technical assistance and support from the local team,” Diaz added.

Laura Llames, Country Manager South Europe, LiveU, commented, “Spain represents a burgeoning market for LiveU, with a growing number of production companies, broadcasters, and rights holders embracing the transformative potential of our technology. Bainet Group’s expansion of live content acquisition in news is testament to the impactful capabilities of the LiveU EcoSystem in content creation.”
