CCTV-China used new video uplink solution for Live Coverage of Shenyang Marathon
CCTV, the state television broadcaster in China, provided full live coverage of the 2017 Shenyang International Marathon using AVIWEST’s PRO180-RA 4G video uplink solution.
Featuring real-time video mobile wireless bonded cellular technology, AVIWEST’s PRO180-RA solution provided CCTV with a portable, cost-effective, and reliable transmission method for delivering high-definition footage of the event to different cities around China.
The Shenyang International Marathon is a world-class event, and CCTV needed a high-performance, flexible, and durable video streaming solution to deliver live coverage of the marathon. A key reason CCTV chose AVIWEST’s PRO180-RA video uplink system is its adaptability, in terms of enabling the live broadcasts from anywhere. This allowed CCTV to transmit live coverage of the marathon from a motorcycle, ensuring that its viewers never missed a second of the action.
More than 20,000 participants from 16 different countries and regions were involved in the marathon. The tournament uses a rare dedicated marathon track to show the beautiful scenery and urban landmarks on both sides of the Hun River in Shenyang, giving competitors a unique running experience. During the live event, CCTV used a motion-shooting camera to capture each of the participants and then transferred the signal to AVIWEST PRO180-RA 4G video uplink solutions for live transmission. Three separate video uplink systems were used simultaneously to provide viewers with different perspectives of the marathon. (C+T Mag)
