V6 Production picks LiveU for live sports coverage in Thailand

Thailand-based V6 Production has adopted LiveU’s live streaming and REMI (remote production) solution to provide innovative live coverage from a series of live sports events.

These include the “Thailand Super Series” (supercar racing), Thai Boxing, Buriram Marathon and Midnight Marathon. On-site support and the equipment are provided by LiveU’s local partner, DSC Thailand.

Established in 2015, V6 Production focuses on TV programs, music videos, and sport event productions.

V6 Production looked for a live video solution which could ensure transmission signal reliability over a large area and optimise its production costs via a simple REMI setup. 

After testing different solutions, V6 picked LiveU’s REMI solution, combining LiveU’s LU800 multi-cam 5G production-level units, with its compact LU300 units, as part of a seamless production workflow. 

Production is handled centrally at V6’s Bangkok production studio with only minimal people required on-site. Multiple high resolution video streams are transmitted remotely – to the OB switcher for recording, and direct to customers’ broadcast and streaming platforms including traditional TV broadcasting networks, OTT, and social media.

Vichit Yodburee, managing director of V6 Production, said, LiveU technology proves that there is no limit to creativity when it comes to sports productions. 

He said LiveU provides signal reliability in crowded areas and over a long distance, together with the highest video quality, even when the camera is moving at high speeds. 

“We can capture the action from multiple angles, getting up close to the athletes and drivers – even inside the cars – generating video views from anywhere for a unique viewing experience,” he added. “This enables us to offer greater value to our customers, providing a more creative and professional live production, while saving costs using the REMI workflow.”

V6 Production sees many opportunities for the technology and is planning to use LiveU for entertainment and corporate events as well, such as festival openings and product launches.

LiveU Asia general manager Yaal Eshel said V6 brings so much creativity to live sports productions, using LiveU technology in innovative ways to cover fast-moving sports events.

“The cost-efficiencies around REMI workflows are clear and we see these workflows increasingly used for events throughout the region.”
