CTM, a telecom service provider in Macau, has selected Asia Satellite Telecommunications Co (AsiaSat) and its subsidiary One Click Go Live (OCGL, formerly known as HERMES Live Technology) to provide a satellite and IP-based total solution to support CTM’s initiative in creating a ‘Digital Macau’, one of the world’s up-and-coming smart cities.
The complete, end-to-end solution comprises AsiaSat’s global satellite contribution and distribution services and a terrestrial IP distribution to viewers’ devices through OCGL’s live streaming platform.
In an effort to bring live coverage of sports and events to global audiences, CTM, AsiaSat and OCGL worked together to distribute live telecast and live streaming of the recent Macau Grand Prix. The coverage was ingested with commentary in real-time to achieve a macro and micro market coverage through low-latency live streaming on the event’s digital platform and social media channel to audiences everywhere and on any devices.
“CTM is pleased to have cooperated with AsiaSat to set up a live streaming platform to deliver the Macau Grand Prix car race event to audiences worldwide,” said Eunice Cheang, Vice President of Strategic Programs of CTM.
“We are committed to providing a communications infrastructure that responds to the explosive demand for communications and entertainment needs of Macau’s tourist industry. This collaboration will mark a step forward for CTM in ushering the ‘Digital Macau’ initiative and further fulfilling customers’ needs for high-quality live streaming services.”
Ina Lui, Senior Vice President, Commercial, Business Development & Strategy of AsiaSat, added, “We are delighted that CTM has selected AsiaSat and our subsidiary One Click Go Live for delivering the live coverage of this world-famous motorsports event.
“This was a perfect occasion to demonstrate our capabilities in providing customised, total video transmission solutions – from satellite-based contribution and distribution service through terrestrial IP connectivity and other value-added services provided by One Click Go Live for live streaming to a global audience anywhere and on any device.”
