Tencent is using LiveU’s portable transmission technology to stream its innovative new reality series live. The new reality series is called See where you are going. The live online programme follows Olympic champions, movie stars and random guests in six cities around China (Suzhou, Hangzhou, Beijing, Tianjin, Qingdao and Shenzhen) as they perform various tasks. Tencent has deployed 10 LU200s, LiveU’s ultra-small transmission units, for the live production. Separate camera crews live stream the different stars in the different locations and viewers can choose one of six different video rooms to watch the video live on any device. At the end of each programme, Tencent posts an edited version combining all the various clips online. The LiveU units and support are provided by LiveU’s local partner Guanhua Glory (GHG) AV system Ltd, a long-standing supplier to Tencent, with additional support provided by Oneband Systems, an additional LiveU partner.
