PETRONAS Le Tour de Langkawi 2020 Race Uses Aviwest Links

Aviwest says multistage cycling event, PETRONAS Tour de Langkawi 2020, was broadcast live on social networks using its PRO3 Series bonded cellular transmitters, QUAD CellLink antennas, and StreamHub transceiver.

Shahaizereen A. Hamid, event director at Human Voyage, says, “We chose Aviwest for the exceptional capabilities of its field units. Its equipment enabled our motorbikes and helicopter to follow riders along the entire road so that they could live-broadcast the excitement of the race over cellular networks, no matter what the environment was like.”

Aviwest’s PRO3 Series field transmitter unit helped Human Voyage deliver premium video quality with end-to-end low latency, while using less data. All of the motorbikes and the helicopter used during the event were equipped with bonded cellular units connected with QUAD CellLink antennas to strengthen and ensure signal transmission.

The firm’s StreamHub received and decoded all incoming live video feeds sent by Human Voyage cameramen in the field, supporting multiple output formats.

“This was our first major live sports event coverage in Malaysia, and it was a rounding success thanks to Human Voyage,” said Frédéric Parbey, vp of sales, APAC, at Aviwest. “More and more people around the world are viewing live sports content online. When broadcasters create compelling live content for their viewers, they attract a greater number of followers and increase engagement with sports fans on social networks, which is key for them.”
