Kairali TV had deployed other TVU solutions previously for live video acquisition in the field and because of that successful experience decided on acquiring additional remote production gear for daily use.

Based on our past experience with TVU technology, reliability and support, we were very glad to turn to them again as a partner to help us with comprehensive live coverage of this important election,” said Kairali TV’s Biju Radhakrishnan. “TVU’s innovative IP and cloud-based solutions are sure to deliver the lowest latency, fastest boot time, best transmission quality under any environment and long battery charge for sustained use. We’ve seen how their IS+ technology together with HEVC have consistently delivered outstanding picture quality using lower data bandwidth.”

“We are honoured to have Kairali TV choose us again for their live broadcast solutions needs and appreciate their trust in us to provide them with the latest technology,” said Sushant Rai, vice president, sales – South Asia, Middle East and Africa, TVU Networks. “We have extensive global experience helping broadcasters with live elections coverage, including the recent 2020 US Presidential Election. Our portable 5G-ready TVU One mobile cellular pack transmitter makes it very easy for camera crews to live broadcast practically from anywhere in 1080p60 HD.
