AVIWEST, a leading provider of live video contribution solutions, today announced that Phoenix TV deployed AVIWEST's PRO3 Series and RACK2 Series to remotely produce live video coverage of the 17th China (Shenzhen) International Cultural Industries Fair, a leading cultural event in China.
"During the event, the video return was available in full HD quality (720p, 1080i, 1080p), at any time, wherever the action was, thanks to AVIWEST's Emmy-Award-winning SST technology, which offers network aggregation," said Frédéric Parbey, vice president sales APAC at AVIWEST. "Broadcasters were able to forward the same video return to multiple devices and multiple video returns to different devices, as well. Our solution drastically simplifies video production everywhere in the field, and the success of this project builds Phoenix TV's confidence in continuing to use our technology."
Taking place from Sept. 23 to 27 in Shenzhen, south China's Guangdong province, the five-day fair aimed to promote Chinese culture globally and welcomed over 2.05 million visitors. At the opening ceremony, the exhibition hosted distinguished guests, including Huang Kunming, head of the publicity department of the CPC Central Committee; Li Xi, secretary of CPC Guangdong Provincial Committee; and Ma Xingrui, governor of Guangdong province. During the event, Kunming led a discussion with HKFEW Wong Cho Bau School students based in Hong Kong through a live duplex setup that was captured by Phoenix TV with AVIWEST's solution.
AVIWEST's PRO3 bonded cellular field units were deployed on the show floor to track VIPs and in Hong Kong to stream students' questions live. Each site received a live low-latency HD video return feed from the remote site, thanks to the AVIWEST RACK200 video encoder.
In the Phoenix TV studio, all video streams coming from remote mobile transmitters were received by the AVIWEST StreamHub transceiver. Each feed could be forwarded to one or multiple field units through a simple drag-and-drop feature on the StreamHub user interface.
