SES And LiveU Launch Integrated Video Contribution And Distribution Solution For Global Live Events
SES and LiveU have partnered to offer an innovative end-to-end solution for live video contribution and distribution combined with premium content aggregation.
Customers looking to broadcast live sports, news and other events from stadiums, sports facilities and remote sites now have access to the most reliable and cost-effective creation and delivery of live video to the widest audience – combining satellite, fibre, IP and cellular capabilities.
The fully integrated and turnkey solution based on the latest broadcast technologies gives global customers access to new services and levels of redundancy, including:
- Contribution: LiveU's cost-efficient mobile field units for live video transmission from outdoor locations and venues connected to SES teleports via 4G/5G. This direct connection offers an alternative to an on-site SNG truck or can be used as a redundant back-up feed.
- Aggregation: Customers now have the ability to instantly aggregate their content in the LiveU Matrix IP cloud live video service, including from LiveU’s mobile field units and through SES’s satellite and IP connections.
- Distribution: Customers can now reach widest possible audiences with simultaneous access to live video distribution over SES’s global satellite and IP network and LiveU Matrix’s global customers' endpoints.
Customers will also have access to leading sports brands using their preferred technology (IP or satellite) while benefiting from SES's dedicated project management team and LiveU's 24/7 support and service.
One of the first customers, Oranda Singapore, recently deployed the joint solution for live broadcasts of sports climbing in Korea to viewers across EMEA, Americas and Asia using LiveU's portable units with SES's satellite distribution.
An enabler of content and connectivity, SES reaches more than 366 million TV households and a billion people worldwide while broadcasting more than 700 hours of premium sports and live events every day. LiveU is recognised as the brand name in portable live video solutions, used by the world's top news broadcasters and sports organizations.
