TVK, The National Television of Kampuchea (TVK) in Cambodia, has selected LiveU for its daily newsgathering after using the company’s LU600 HEVC solution to cover last month’s three-day Water Festival (“Bon Om Touk”). The deal is being managed by LiveU’s Thai partner DSC which provided on-site support at the event.
Using LiveU units, TVK’s camera crew creatively captured the carnival atmosphere of the festival, one of the biggest events in Cambodia which attracts millions of people every year. Firework displays were held at the river and more than 400 boats took part in the annual boat race.
“We were really impressed by the LU600 HEVC’s video performance as well as the bandwidth efficiency. We were getting bandwidth at around 10Mbps, and even when we capped the bandwidth at 5Mbps, the video quality stayed the same” said Mr. Khim Vuthy, Director General of National Television of Cambodia (TVK). “At previous water festivals, we used satellite OB vans which restricted our mobility. With LiveU’s cellular bonding technology, we had no such limitations and were free to go live wherever we wanted, including on boats to cover the races and from the top of a building when the King arrived. We’re now planning to use multiple LiveU units for our daily newsgathering and event coverage.”
Mr. Yaal Eshel, VP Sales at LiveU, said, “We were excited to support TVK’s coverage of the water festival which provided an excellent use case for our HEVC solution. The new LU600 H.265 has been proven by our customers to enable live video transmission in extreme conditions from ultra HD quality to very low bandwidth.”
The National Television of Kampuchea (TVK) is a national public broadcasting state media and mass media conglomerate of radio and television services in the Kingdom of Cambodia. It owns and operates about 12 radio stations and one television channel (terrestrial free-to-air) from Phnom Penh.
