LiveU’s LU600 HEVC Boosts ANI Media’s Live Newsgathering Platform

“LiveU’s unique Reliable Transport Protocol (LRTTM) capabilities coupled with the game-changing HEVC technology on one hand results in high bandwidth bonded network pipe and on the other, yields superb video quality at low bitrates which ultimately helps in data expense management (as the cost decreases multifold)”, says Mr. Ranjit Bhatti, the Director of LiveU (South Asia).

Asia’s premier news agency Asian News International (ANI) has upgraded its entire LiveU fleet with LiveU’s flagship LU600 HEVC units for global newsgathering and live sports coverage. ANI’s newsgathering fleet, which is spread all over India, heavily relies on LiveU technology. The project has been overseen by LiveU’s partner in India, Lamhas Satellite Services, which provides onsite service and support nationwide.

ANI first started using LiveU in 2011 and was a pioneer in moving its newsgathering to cellular bonding technology. The leading news agency uses LiveU for breaking and developing news, around the country and abroad. In 2014, LiveU was used widely for ANI’s Indian general election coverage, covering the campaign and Election Day itself.

LiveU is driving the live video revolution, providing live video streaming for TV, mobile, online and social media. The company’s portfolio of products sets the industry standard for live video production. Now, this same technology is available for use with any camera through a web-based portal enabling high-quality live streams directly to Facebook Live and other popular social media and online video providers. Combined with our robust cloud-based live video management and distribution software, LiveU enables broadcasters of all sizes to acquire and share live video reliably on any viewing platform.

ANI selected the LU600 HEVC after extensive testing due to its high video performance and reliability combined with its proven ability to support high quality broadcasting at a low bandwidth. Mr. Ishaan Prakash, Editor at ANI Live Service said, “We’ve been using LiveU exclusively for years with close support from LiveU and its local partner, Lamhas. When we looked into upgrading our equipment, LiveU’s LU600 HEVC was our first choice, offering the highest quality solution available today. We’re deploying these units around the country, giving us the flexibility to cover top news stories wherever they break.”

“LiveU’s unique Reliable Transport Protocol (LRTTM) capabilities coupled with the game-changing HEVC technology on one hand results in high bandwidth bonded network pipe and on the other, yields superb video quality at low bitrates which ultimately helps in data expense management (as the cost decreases multifold)”, says Mr. Ranjit Bhatti, the Director of LiveU (South Asia).

With over 3,000 customers in 100+ countries, LiveU’s technology is establishing itself as the solution of choice for global broadcasters, online media, news agencies and social media to cover breaking and developing news and high-profile events, such as the US Presidential Election, the FIFA World Cup, Winter and Summer Olympic Games, Super Bowl, US Collegiate Championships and red-carpet events. The company is now aiming to tap the Indian broadcast market with the exponential growth the market has been exhibiting. The company believes that the Indian market has demonstrated to be one of the fastest emerging and one of the biggest broadcast markets with more than 1000+ channels.
