TBS ACT Japan Deploys LiveU’s On-Site Production Solution With Starlink For Live TV Variety Show

LiveU has announced the successful deployment of its On-Site Production solution combined with Starlink satellites for TBS Japan’s live production of the Japanese TV variety show, “Ousama no Brunch”. Produced by TBS ACT, the production arm of TOKYO BROADCASTING SYSTEM TELEVISION, INC. (TBS), the popular prime-time show was broadcast live from one of Japan’s largest theme parks to millions of viewers nationwide.

LiveU's On-Site Production solution, with its Mobile Receiver and, in this case, Starlink integration, enables a cost-effective, wire-free set-up with extreme resiliency in crowded outside locations. The integration expands the possibilities for on-site productions in areas where wired network lines are not available and network conditions are challenging. The solution is part of LiveU's network-agnostic EcoSystem, enabling LiveU's set of IP-video solutions to be connected with other best-of-breed IP and satellite networks.

High-quality live feeds were delivered from numerous LiveU field units, LU800s and LU600s, around the park straight into the LiveU receivers installed in the production truck using multiple mobile and satellite networks. LiveU supported the overall deployment and pre-tests at the on-site production venue with local partner, NTT Communications Corporation which assisted the set-up and mobile network connectivity.
