New Delhi: Following a series of new projects with broadcasters earlier this year, Noida-based Beehive Systems has announced the launch of its Windows Media Player 9-based digital newsgathering solution called live burst.

"The timing of the launch will help the broadcasters utilize this product for the 2004 parliamentary elections in India. In fact, there are talks on with quite a few reputed names in the Indian broadcast industry who want to use this system to be able to telecast live and exclusive coverage of the elections from all parts of the country in a cost-effective way," says the spokesperson of the company.

This system allows television journalists reporting from remote locations to transfer high quality videos live back to the central location (studio). The USP of this system is its capability to transfer videos at really low bandwidth (512 Kbps) over a KU-band network at significantly low cost.

The benefits of the new offering are - videos can be sent live over bandwidth as low as (512 kbps) from remote location, no compromise in quality of the video, intuitive and user-friendly interface, metadata attachment for location, description, date and time stamps on files among others.

On benefit over traditional mode of video transfer, the company stated that OB Van costs in crores compared to under-3 million in which the client can set up the entire mobile set of live burst. "For nearly same video quality transfer, a traditional mode requires 2 Mbps bandwidth, whereas, live burstÔ needs 512kbps. This helps you save on operational cost," says the spokesperson.

For Beehive, the development follows order from Doordarshan for delivering 50 units of "News Clip Delivery System" for sending and receiving video clips from various parts of the country. Beehive offered on-site support to install and train DDs journalists and engineering staff. TV Today Network had ordered Beehive Systems 16 more vid link licenses for Aaj Tak for expansion of its existing network to gather video across remote locations and conduct video conferencing between remote sites and the central production center.
