Through TVU’s Rental Program, YTN’s team was able to report live from Vladivostok, Moscow, Warsaw and Berlin.

TVU Networks played a critical role in broadcasting this highly symbolic, inter-continental express train project. TVU deployed additional TVUPacks to longtime partner, YTN, through TVU Network’s flexible and convenient Global Rental Program. Through this program, YTN was able to ensure the highest level of transmission from various key stops throughout the journey, regardless of the changing bandwidth constraints and while providing the most optimal picture quality.

“TVU Global Rental Program was fundamentally important to YTN’s coverage of the Eurasia express train journey. To capture footage from each of the key stops along the lengthy journey, we required additional TVUPacks,” said Hyungil Park, YTN Technical Planning Team Manager. “We have been using TVUPacks to transmit news from all over South Korea since 2011, and we knew would could rely on TVU for this purpose, as well. TVUPacks are made for this sort of mobile broadcasting and this was such a large and important event, we could not risk using a product we weren’t confident with,” Park said. “The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Korea Railroad Corporation (Korail) co-sponsored this ambitious railway project meant to promote peace and unity throughout Eurasia, and we had a firm understanding of how important this was to the people of South Korea and how essential our role was in bringing them closer to the news,” Park explained.

“TVU was truly a loyal partner to us as we embarked on this project. We relied on TVU Networks in four crucial cities throughout the 20-day expedition. This was of vital importance, as the viewers and people of South Korea relied on YTN to provide the most accurate, real-time news of this unprecedented journey. This was undoubtedly the most cost-effective and seamless way to provide this sort of coverage. TVU provided the necessary packs and equipment to ensure we would have the best connection, strongest signal and highest picture quality to report back to our loyal viewers in South Korea,” said Park.
