Aviwest broadcasts Petronas Tour de Langkawi 2020


The Petronas Tour de Langkawi 2020 multistage cycling event was broadcast live on social networks using Aviwest’s flagship PRO3 Series bonded cellular transmitters, Quad CellLink antennas and StreamHub transceiver, with race event organiser Human Voyage providing live footage of every stage of the competition.

“Our viewers didn’t want to miss a second of the competition, and we needed to ensure there was zero delay during our live streaming sessions,” said Shahaizereen A Hamid, event director at Human Voyage. “We chose Aviwest for the exceptional capabilities of its field units. Its equipment enabled our motorbikes and helicopter to follow riders along the entire road so that they could live-broadcast the excitement of the race over cellular networks, no matter what the environment was like. Aviwest’s team provided us with highly professional support and technical expertise, staying by our side at every stage of the project.”

The French manufacturer’s PRO3 Series compact field transmitter unit allowed Human Voyage to capture and reproduce the intensity of the competition, placing viewers at the heart of the race and increasing their engagement with the event via social media. Its H.265/HEVC hardware encoder helped Human Voyage deliver premium video quality with end-to-end low latency, while using less data. All of the motorbikes and the helicopter used during the event were equipped with bonded cellular units connected with Aviwest Quad CellLink antennas to strengthen and ensure signal transmission. Aviwest’s StreamHub, which supports multiple output formats and features an intuitive web user interface, allowing video content to be distributed over virtually any IP network to any social media platform, received and decoded all incoming live video feeds sent by Human Voyage cameramen in the field.

“This was our first major live sports event coverage in Malaysia, and it was a resounding success thanks to Human Voyage,” said Frédéric Parbey, vice president of sales, APAC, at Aviwest. “More and more people around the world are viewing live sports content online. When broadcasters create compelling live content for their viewers, they attract a greater number of followers and increase engagement with sports fans on social networks, which is key for them.”
