​TV2 Stations Cover Elections With AVIWEST

TV2 Denmark, the Danish public broadcaster, added to its fleet of AVIWEST bonded cellular uplink systems and used PRO180-RA transmitter units, MOJOPRO mobile applications, and StreamHub transceivers for live HD coverage of the recent regional election.

Peter Tonnisen, technical manager at regional station TV2 Lorry explains, "The digital mobile newsgathering equipment was integrated in our production system and enabled us to reliably transmit results to viewers in real time, making the election coverage a success."

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, optimizing the monitoring of video transmissions and communicating with operators in the field through the SIP-based IFB application for coverage in progress.

"TV2 Denmark has been relying on AVIWEST's solution for several years. For such an important event as the regional elections, the broadcaster needed to expand its transmission capabilities. By enabling flawless live streaming, the DMNG ecosystem fully met TV2's demanding production requirements," said David Jaouen, sales manager at AVIWEST. "Moreover, we want to thank our Danish partner Minitech for deploying additional units and for providing 24/7 local support and services to TV2.”
