Philmart, a TVU Networks partner, has provided systems integration services to Kenya Broadcasting Corporation.
TVU Networks, a provider of cloud and IP-based live video solutions, has announced that Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) added 10 TVU One 4K HDR mobile transmitters to its existing TVU complement for more extensive live news coverage and a TVU VS3500 4K UHD server to support streaming content on the website and social media.
Nairobi-based firm, Philmart, a TVU Networks partner, provided systems integration services to KBC. Philmart also provided training to the KBC editorial, technical and ICT teams on how to leverage the TVU Cloud solutions of TVU Anywhere, TVU Partyline and TVU Producer.
Commenting on the development, Job Karimi, Manager Technical Operations of KBC, said: “TVU is the backbone of our ENG operation. We’re able to report various incidents as they happen and keep the public updated on the latest news within the shortest time possible. We use TVU every day in our daily ENG news production. In cases where we deploy our OB van, we also use our TVU One units to capture critical cut-away shots and to cover areas where the OB truck cannot. From the market information we’ve seen, TVU is a superior brand, and following our acquisition of their technology, that has proven to be true.”
KBC has been a TVU customer since 2016 when they first purchased 10 TVU One mobile transmitters that were first deployed in Kenya’s Presidential Elections of 2017.
Paul Shen, CEO of TVU Networks, added: “KBC and Philmart, are longtime valued partners of TVU Networks. It’s rewarding to witness how KBC has utilised our solutions to push their news coverage forward. Given what they’ve accomplished thus far, we expect their media services to continue to break boundaries both locally and globally.”
