TVK Cambodia Selects
LiveU Solution

VK, The National Television
Cambodia selected LiveU for its
daily newsgathering after using the
company's LU600 HEVC solution to
cover the recent three-day Water
Festival (Bon Om Touk).
Using LiveU units, TVK's camera
crew creatively captured the carnival
atmosphere of the festival, one of the
biggest events in Cambodia which
attracts millions of people every year.
Firework displays were held at the
river and more than 400 boats took
part in the annual boat race.
Mr Khim Vuthy, Director General

TVK deployed LiveU LU600 units
to cover the Water Festival

TVK said: "At previous
water festivals, we used
satellite OB vans which
restricted our mobility.
With LiveU's cellular
bonding technology, we
had no such limitations
and were free to go live
wherever we wanted,
including on boats
to cover the races
and from the top of
a building when the
King arrived. We're now planning to
use multiple LiveU units for our daily
newsgathering and event coverage."

any further than Wohler Technologies
