Pakistan’s Geo News used the Quicklink mobile encoder for its coverage of the June 8 general election in the United Kingdom, the company announced today.
The top Pakistani TV channel used the encoder to go live from London to its headquarters in Karachi, Pakistan. The field contribution from London was done with the mobile encoder via the internet, which allowed the broadcaster to sidestep the expense of satellite connectivity as well as any transmission issues that may have arisen due to the heavy rains on election day, the company said.
Geo News also used Quicklink playout servers for its election coverage.
More information is available on the Quicklink website.
