ITV Sport Deploys LiveU Technology at the 2019 Rugby World Cup for Enhanced Live Coverage and Disaster Recovery

ITV Sport, premier UK sports producer for the ITV network, has turned to LiveU to provide an enhanced viewer experience at the 2019 Rugby World Cup (RWC) and as a tertiary disaster recovery (DR) solution, backing up satellite and fibre feeds.

ITV Sport is using portable LU600 HEVC units around the country in three teams, each providing a range of additional material beyond match coverage. These roving teams, with embedded reporters, send their material direct to ITV Sport in the UK for both edits and live reports. This enables the producer to concentrate on the content without having to worry about how the material gets back to the UK. Additionally, highlights presentation links are also sometimes fed via LiveU.

Roger Pearce, Technical Director, Sport, ITV Sport Productions, said, “We’ve used LiveU with our reporting teams for a number of years successfully to enhance coverage. At this year’s RWC we have two separate jobs for LiveU: live/store/forward material from our reporting teams and DR feeds from our presentation studios and OBs.”

Pearce explains that the idea to use it as a traditional contribution path only came to the forefront when they were looking at low-cost options to provide high-quality DR feeds that are completely diverse to normal fibre and satellite delivery. After testing using existing LiveU infrastructure, it proved a simple and cost-effective solution, according to Pearce.

PlayBox Neo Channel-in-a-Box Powers New Thai University HDTV Channel

Rajamangala University of Technology (RMUT) in Thailand has chosen a Neo-19 series Channel-in-a-Box playout system as the heart of a new online TV channel. Operated by staff and students of the university's Mass Communication Technology faculty, the channel will form a basis for training in the techniques of broadcast television content production and distribution.

 

"RMUT chose PlayBox Neo for its operational versatility, its proven robustness and as the clear brand of choice among broadcasters in the Asia Pacific region and around the world," comments Sathiti Silayaeng, Sales Engineer at O'Connor's (Thailand) Company Limited which coordinated the project. "We were able to specify a solution exactly meeting the Mass Communication Technology faculty's requirements by selecting relevant modules such as TitleBox Neo from the Neo19 range of software. Installed at the university's Thanyaburi campus, these are running on a PlayBox Neo high-definition server with an integral IP streaming output. It is a highly compact solution which interfaced easily with the faculty's archive server. Installation, configuration and staff training were all completed on schedule and to the MCT's full satisfaction."
