As Covid-19 pandemic forces schools and organisations to go digital, the demand for virtual learning programmes across media channels has increased exponentially.
With the support of AJA HELO, the Educational Broadcasting System (EBS), an affiliate of Korean Broadcasting System (KBS) responsible for delivering educational content to the public, has transformed the classroom digitally and accelerated the output of its instructional programming video for K-12 students across the country.
To engage students, EBS allows its content to be available on its YouTube Channel and each live stream is powered by AJA HELO H.264 streaming and recording device.
Having benefited from AJA HELO’s reliability and high-quality output since 2019, EBS expanded its HELO integration to 10 of its e-learning studios, to support live streaming to its website and YouTube Channel. In each studio sits a Sony PMW-EX3 camera with a wireless micro mux connected to an AJA HELO, which is used to quickly and easily stream live camera feeds to YouTube.
“We’ve been using AJA HELO since 2019 and it’s been really helpful for our broadcasting with its excellent features and quality. As EBS is a public service broadcasting station, we have to be fully dedicated to produce high-quality programmes, and we must always pay the utmost attention in selecting the device and equipment,” said Suk Joong Kim, head engineer, EBS.
“This time, we could adopt HELO again for our facility renovation without any hesitation as HELO is the most reliable product for us. We installed 10 additional HELO units in our new e-learning studios.
“For the time being, EBS will strive to cover the deficiency of the school education system raised by the Covid-19, by collaborating with the main domestic portals and IPTVs.
“Henceforth, EBS will continue to dedicate itself to the development of public education and support lifelong education in Korea.”
