V6 Production, one of Thailand’s top production companies, has selected LiveU’s live streaming and REMI (remote production) solution to provide innovative live coverage from a series of live sports events. These include the “Thailand Super Series” (supercar racing), Thai Boxing, Buriram Marathon and Midnight Marathon.
V6 Production looked for a live video solution which could ensure transmission signal reliability over a large area and optimize its production costs via a simple REMI setup. After testing different solutions, V6 selected LiveU's REMI solution, combining LiveU's LU800 multi-cam 5G production-level units, with its compact LU300 units, as part of a seamless production workflow. Production is handled centrally at V6's Bangkok production studio with only minimal people required on-site. Multiple high resolution video streams are transmitted remotely – to the OB switcher for recording, and direct to customers' broadcast and streaming platforms including traditional TV broadcasting networks, OTT, and social media.
Mr. Vichit Yodburee, Managing Director, V6 Production Company Limited, said, "LiveU technology proves that there is no limit to creativity when it comes to sports productions. LiveU provides signal reliability in crowded areas and over a long distance, together with the highest video quality, even when the camera is moving at high speeds. We can capture the action from multiple angles, getting up close to the athletes and drivers – even inside the cars – generating video views from anywhere for a unique viewing experience. This enables us to offer greater value to our customers, providing a more creative and professional live production, while saving costs using the REMI workflow. We see many opportunities for the technology and are planning to use LiveU for entertainment and corporate events as well, such as festival openings and product launches."
Mr. Yaal Eshel, General Manager – LiveU Asia, said, "V6 brings so much creativity to live sports productions, using our technology in innovative ways to cover fast-moving sports events. The cost-efficiencies around REMI workflows are clear and we see these workflows increasingly used for events throughout the region."
