TV2 and Its Regional Stations Improve Live Coverage of Danish Election With AVIWEST Bonded Cellular Solution

By Increasing Its AVIWEST Transmitter Fleet, the Danish Broadcaster Transmitted Live Election Footage With Greater Efficiency and Simplicity

AVIWEST, a global provider of video contribution systems, today announced that TV2 Denmark, the Danish public broadcaster, extended its fleet of AVIWEST bonded cellular uplink systems by deploying several PRO180-RA remote transmitter units, MOJOPRO mobile applications, and StreamHub transceivers. Using an expanded range of AVIWEST digital mobile newsgathering equipment, TV2 Denmark vastly improved live coverage of the recent regional election. The AVIWEST system allowed TV2 to successfully broadcast live HD video of the event over 3G/4G cellular wireless networks with minimal delay.

"AVIWEST's solution offered us a flexible, affordable, and simple way to stream live high-quality videos from any location across the country, even on cellular networks," said Peter Tonnisen, technical manager at regional station TV2 Lorry. "The digital mobile newsgathering equipment was perfectly integrated in our production system and enabled us to reliably transmit results to viewers in real time, making the election coverage a success."

Thanks to AVIWEST SafeStreams® technology, the broadcaster's remote journalists were able to transmit live videos over bonded 3G/4G and Wi-Fi connections using PRO field units and MOJOPRO smartphone applications, without having to worry about network conditions. Leveraging the StreamHub transceiver, TV2's team remotely controlled and configured its fleet of transmitters with ease, optimizing the monitoring of video transmissions and communicating with operators in the field through the SIP-based IFB application for coverage in progress.
