As one of the leading national television channels in the country, TV Channel Ukraine broadcasts a variety of entertainment, educational, dramatic and news programs. Recently the channel was looking to extend its newsgathering equipment fleet in order to cover more events.
After years of relying on digital mobile newsgathering (DMNG) systems from AVIWEST, TV channel executives chose to enhance their existing equipment in order to realize additional efficiency and flexibility. TV Channel Ukraine is now using AVIWEST’s DMNG StreamHub for reception of multiple concurrent incoming streams from video uplink systems, encoders and smartphone apps, and the DMNG PRO to stream live video down to the receiver with minimal delay. The DMNG PRO systems include multiple cellular connections, a built-in Wi-Fi modem, and best-in-class H.264 video encoders that speed up newsgathering operations while enabling seamless live news coverage. The DMNG equipment is managed with AVIWEST’s DMNG Manager.
With AVIWEST solutions, TV Channel Ukraine can transmit live SD and HD video over unmanaged networks, including bonded 4G/3G cellular, Wi-Fi and Ethernet. AVIWEST’s equipment provides a high level of reliability and mobility, guaranteeing signal strength and cost efficiencies for coverage of major events such as presidential and parliamentary elections, conflict in the eastern region, and the European football championships.
Featuring a lightweight, compact design that fits into TV Channel Ukraine’s workflows, the DMNG systems allow distribution of video content from any environment. With an expanded global reach, TV Channel Ukraine can provide viewers with a broader range of high-quality television content.
