Danish broadcaster TV2 has equipped its latest SNG and IP vans with Aviwest PRO3 Series bonded cellular transmitters, HE4000 UHD/multi-HD video encoders, QUAD CellLink antennas and other solutions.
The new solutions enable the broadcaster to transition from Ku-band satellite to a full IP-based production workflow.
Aviwest’s StreamHub transceiver platform enables TV2 to simultaneously stream to multiple destinations, such as web, OTT, and TV. It can support a variety of streaming protocols, such as RTMP, RTSP/RTP, HLS and TS/IP, to ensure that broadcasters can freely distribute video content over the public internet and virtually any IP networks, including 3G, 4G, and 5G.
The broadcaster is using the HE4000 encoders and camera-mounted PRO380 bonded cellular transmitters, to remotely produce multicamera live stories and multiplatform contribution with up to five concurrent video streams.
“The new vans enable us to produce more high-quality, value-added live content for the same cost. Our journalists and camera operators can move freely and operate all of the equipment with ease,” said Jens Christoffersen, technical solution architect at TV2.
“With Aviwest’s solutions, remote areas become accessible. The equipment is more modular, compact, and lightweight that what we were using previously, and we have the unique capability to support news helicopter feeds, if necessary.”
