Derana TV taps on LiveU for mobile newsgathering of Presidential election

Sri Lanka channel Derana TV deployed LiveU technology for newsgathering and coverage of the recent November 16 Presidential election.. To provide a compelling experience for the audience, the TV station chose LiveU’s LU600 HEVC units.

The LU600 HEVC is reputed to be tailored to the new age of mobile journalism; it comes in three configurations: HD, 4K-HDMI and 4K-SDI. Moreover, the unit has a specially designed smart backpack, with improved usability, remote control functionality and easy access to display, controls, and interfaces. 


With its ‘live-and-store’ function, the unit allows broadcasters to go live under any network conditions while saving a high-quality copy of the live video for future purposes.


Madhawa Madawala, executive director and COO, Derana TV, said: “Choosing LiveU has been an extremely smart and strategic decision – equipping us with a technology that can travel places with us. We had a news team of 100 people delivering the most accurate and timely [election] information and LiveU’s contribution to this has been massive.


“As a media channel, we constantly look for technologies that make our workflows and life, in general, easier. LiveU has surpassed our expectations and helped us reduce production costs.”
