TVU Networks has announced a series of solutions and support for broadcasters covering next year’s Winter Olympics in Beijing, China.
The company says because of potential challenges around Covid, stricter travel parameters in China, and mountainous terrain surrounding venue locations Yanqing and Zhangjiakou, broadcast coverage of the Winter Games could prove even more challenging than conditions faced in Tokyo.
For broadcasters covering the Games TVU will offer its TVU One mobile transmitters for rent, including:
- 5G transmission with unlimited 5G data
- 4K HDR or 1080p HDR picture quality
- Sub-second latency
- The aggregation of all available data connections – cellular, 5G, WiFi, Ethernet, and satellite – to transmit broadcast-quality video from any location
Other services the company intends to offer in Beijing include:
- Equipment delivery, pick up, set up, technical assistance and exchanges within two to four hours from notification subject to Covid regulations
- Zero risk booking ensures a full refund if Games are cancelled
- 24×7 live pool feeds from Beijing
- Watch Party Solution to easily and cost effectively share live moments between athletes and friends and family remotely
- Professional Remote Reporting Solution, which provides reporters and producers the ability to conduct remote interviews from their home or studio
- Complimentary office space in the TVU Beijing office with free high-speed internet access and language assistance
- All-in-One Interview Kit for mobile journalists that enable high quality live shots from anywhere
“We’ve got a solid support network in place,” said Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks. “Our TVU team will take care of any issues our customers face, so they can focus on producing the best possible coverage in Beijing. While we provided a host of services on the ground in Tokyo, our support will be even more extensive in China based on our lessons learned, and because we believe that conditions in Beijing could make remote coverage there even more challenging. Given our successes in Tokyo, we’re confident in our ability to help broadcasters navigate the complexities of next year’s Winter Games.”
The Beijing Winter Olympics take place from 4th to 20th February 2022.
