LiveU LU600 Corporate Client Press Briefing

LiveU LU600 Corporate Client Press Briefing

When traditional satellite transmission isn’t feasible we can always find other means of delivering content. For our corporate client in Edinburgh, Scotland, we discovered after our initial site survey that using an SNG was going to be difficult due to the City Centre location. So we took the decision to use our LiveU LU600 bonded cellular facility to deliver the client’s press briefing to the world’s media. The LiveU signal was delivered via the 8 sims of the LU600 plus local internet, and was provided to broadcasters and other media outlets as an SDI feed at BT Tower, so for the media recipients there was no change. In addition to the LiveU facility we also supplied our desktop mobile GSM unit & Telephone Balance Unit for telephony communications because a traditional phone line wasn’t available. The client was impressed with how we managed to deliver the same level of service regardless of transmission methods and how we are always able to support their needs.

Fastnet Yacht Race Satellite Capacity

Satellite Capacity – Fastnet Yacht Race

For the first time in the history of the Fastnet Yacht Race the end of the race and the prize-giving ceremony was planned to be in Cherbourg, France. Because of this Links Broadcast were asked by French TV Station Equipe TV to provide uplink facilities and satellite capacity to transmit the start of the race from Cowes on the Isle of Wight. So our uplink vehicle, R19, was on site to witness this historic event and to provide uninterrupted coverage to the French broadcaster. This legendary sporting contest, now in its 49th year, is held over a 695 mile nautical course, and this year the trophy for the Fastnet Challenge Cup was presented to Tom Kneen and the British crew of Sunrise as ultimate winners of the race.
