Thanthi TV expands LiveU deployment for live news coverage

MUMBAI: Tamil news channel Thanthi TV has strengthened its LiveU deployment to support its live newsgathering capabilities.

Thanthi TV is adding eight LU500 portable transmission units and upgrading another nine LU70s to the LU500, bringing the total count to 17 units overall.

Thanthi TV (Metronation Chennai Television Pvt Ltd) COO Prasanna Jothi said, “As existing LiveU customers, we’ve been very satisfied with the product and service provided by LiveU’s local partner Lamhas Satellite Services. When we decided to increase our fleet of products, the LU500 was a natural choice. Besides being compact and user-friendly, it offers superior video performance and reliability due to its robust internal modems and proprietary antenna technology. We’re discussing further expansion in 2017.”
