TVU Networks continued its streak of successful live transmissions, announcing its TVU Nano 5G router delivered a total of six days (80 hours) of non-stop, live 4K video from the China International Fair for Trade in Services (CIFTIS) in Shougang Park in Beijing. (Trade in services refers to the sale and delivery of an intangible product, such as medical, legal, engineering, etc.) International trade in services has a multitude of changing global rules to navigate, not to mention changing technology. CIFTIS attracts business executives from 71 countries and international organisations.
Organisers set up a 4K PTZ camera to provide live footage from the Trade Fair. Real-time coverage of caterpillar-to-butterfly transformations as well as panoramic shots of the area’s unique landscape were broadcast each day.
The compact router created a reliable, high-bandwidth network for the transmission of the live 4K signals to the media. Over 80-hours of live 4K video were broadcast from Shougang Park over China media platforms including CCTV News, Xinhua News Agency, BTV Beijing Satellite TV, and as well as social media sites.
Event producers deployed one TVU Nano 5G router at the site of the PTZ camera and one at the broadcast studio in China National Convention Center. “Producers were able to aggregate multiple communication links from major providers using TVU Nano,” said Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks. “Showing viewers real-time video from around the Trade Fair was a very creative way to attract more attention to the event in a way that fit with the event’s environmental theme. We’re thrilled organisers chose TVU Nano for this application based on their highly successful experience with our technology.”
Using the TVU Nano 5G router, producers created their own public network in the cloud, which also enabled real-time, remote control of 4K cameras and the PTZ camera from the broadcast centre.
TVU Nano’s patented IS+ technology aggregates multiple communication links including 4G, 5G, LTE, cable, satellite, ethernet, and Wi-Fi to guarantee the highest bandwidth reliability under unreliable and extreme network environments. The compact TVU Nano aggregates and maximises up to six channels of bandwidth, including 3 5G cellular networks, wi-fi and ethernet.
