SES and LiveU develop solution for live video contribution and distribution with content aggregation
SES and LiveU have recently announced their partnership. They will offer an end-to-end solution for live video contribution and distribution combined with content aggregation.
The solution is based on satellite, fibre, IP and cellular capabilities combined. The users could access to services and levels of redundancy. These include: mobile field units for live video transmission from outdoor locations and venues connected to SES teleports via 4G/5G; users can add their content in the LiveU Matrix IP cloud live video service, including from LiveU’s mobile field units and through SES’s satellite and IP connections; additionally, customers can now reach widest possible audiences with simultaneous access to live video distribution over SES’s global satellite and IP network and LiveU Matrix’s global customers’ endpoints.
One of the first customers, Oranda Singapore, recently deployed the joint solution for live broadcasts of sports climbing in Korea to viewers across EMEA, Americas and Asia using LiveU’s portable units with SES’s satellite distribution. Floris Molijn, CEO, Oranda, said, “We are thrilled with the level of quality and flexibility that SES and LiveU have provided in finding a tailor-made solution for Oranda that combined SES’s knowledge, reach and satellite capability with LiveU’s production capabilities to deliver broadcast-quality signals over mobile data networks. Bringing it all together required out of the box thinking to turn around a project with very tight lead times, and SES and LiveU provided 100% reliability of signal distribution.”
Michele Gosetti, Head of Sales, Sports & Events at SES, said, “LiveU is a leader in mobile and cloud-based broadcast video technologies, and they perfectly complement our vision of enabling our customers to broadcast live sports and events from nearly anywhere to the widest global audience possible. Combining our expertise in sports and events and our global reach with LiveU’s mobile units and cellular technologies gives our customers the ability to deliver high-quality, professional broadcasts whether athletes are climbing up a remote mountain or competing in an urban professional sports stadium.”
The joint offering will be presented at IBC2022 in Amsterdam (LiveU stand 7.C30 / SES Meeting Rooms at Hall 1, Balcony suites BS10-BS11).
