Credit Andorrà G-Series electric car Snow Rally Championships
Motor sports live stats broadcast producer Al Kamel System, has used TVU Remote Production System (RPS) to save time and reduce production costs on several events by allowing production staff to add race graphics remotely instead of travelling onsite.
Al Kamel Systems’ production team can remain at their HQ facility near Barcelona and run the graphics in synchronization with the live event. TVU RPS allows them to produce remotely using a public internet connection with a delay between the live feed and graphics playout of less than one second. TVU RPS can bi-directionally transport up to 6 HDSDI HEVC enhanced signals with a sub-second latency and IP data tunnel for additional remote control.
Earlier this year, Al Kamel Systems used TVU’s lightest live video transmitter, TVU NANO Video, to transmit real-time video feed from the pilot cabin of cars taking part in the annual Credit Andorrà G-Series electric car Snow Rally Championships. This event takes place every year at 2,400 metres in the Pyrenees, a region with challenging connectivity issues. To overcome the challenges presented, the car weight limit, a remote location at high altitude and with only one wireless network available, the Al Kamel Systems team used TVU NANO Video with two bonded SIMs to transmit Full HD 1080i and enhanced H. 265/HEVC footage over the wireless network to a server located in Barcelona.
José Luis García, CEO, Al Kamel Systems, said:“Motor sports fans have struggled to access high quality live footage of their favourite sports. The power, portability and flexibility of the TVU NANO Video enabled us for the first time to provide the teams and motor sports fans with live high-quality video, a key driver in enabling the G-Series to grow in popularity.”
TVU NANO Video is powered by TVU Networks’ patented algorithm, Inverse Statmux Plus, to provide a high-bandwidth IP connection by aggregating multiple connection links including cellular, Ethernet and WiFi to secure bandwidth for stable transmission.
David Jorba, EVP and MD Europe, TVU Networks, said: “By providing motor fans and the driver’s teams with a high-quality live video, the experience of the rally provided by Al Kamel Systems was the next best thing to being in the car. The uninterrupted high-quality coverage of the Credit Andorrà G-Series was further testament to the performance of our solutions in challenging environments and network conditions. Also, by choosing to use TVU’s RPS for graphic delivery, Al Kamel Systems was able to both reduce production costs and increase the quality of the video experience enjoyed by motor sport fans.”
