TVU Remote Commentator Platform Enables Live, Remote Sports Commentary Over IP for Mediacorp at 31st Southeast Asian Games

 TVU Networks, the market and technology leader in cloud and IP-based live video solutions, announced the first high-profile deployment of its TVU Remote Commentator cloud-based remote commentary platform in the Asia Pacific region. As the official sponsor of the 31st Southeast Asian Games and the technical partner of Mediacorp,  Singapore’s largest national media group, TVU provided the solution,TVU Remote Commentator, to  enable live, remote commentary with announcers in different countries, synchronized to furnish a natural, conversational affect.

At the SEA Games, the TVU Remote Commentator proved the ideal cloud platform for collaboration of multiple commentators in multiple remote locations on a single production.

For the Philippines vs. Timor-Leste men’s football match, for instance, Mediacorp created a live conversation between commentators at the IBC in Hanoi and at Mediacorp TV headquarters in Singapore. Using TVU Remote Commentator, each announcer was able to see the live game video, hear each other’s commentary, and hear audio from the stadium – all live and in sync. The result was a discussion that was as easy and natural as if they’d been together at the event.

Commentators conducted remote commentator from Sydney using TVU Remote Commentator for several events, including the Women’s Synchro 10m Platform and Men’s Tanding.

“This is our first time using TVU Remote Commentator,” said JunJie Lee, Technical Head for SEA Games of Mediacorp. “It’s quite stable and user friendly. We foresee using it again soon.”
