Deliver Live Content for LMG
BY NEIL MORRISON // EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR // LMG
s a leading provider of video, audio
and lighting services, LMG has supported some of the world’s largest
conventions and meetings, nationally televised events, international concert tours and
Fortune 500 corporate presentations.
Recently we were challenged with delivering live content from one Las Vegas hotel
ballroom to several other hotels in the area.
Given the high costs of using satellite, we required a high-quality solution for point-to-point broadcasting using the public internet. The
solution needed to provide exceptional HD signal quality due to the
demanding display requirements at the receiving end of the broadcast.

NEEDED MPEG-4 SUPPORT
As we’re a world-class event solutions provider, we have to deliver
broadcast-quality signal distribution to large-format displays regardless of the transmission medium or distance. Therefore, the ideal solution for this task also needed to support MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) video,
as this would lower the overall bandwidth cost for transmission, while
offering our clients a greater reach into remote areas that lack extensive bandwidth infrastructure.
After a thorough evaluation of the available encoding and decoding solutions, we selected Fujitsu’s H.264 AVC IP-920E encoders and
IP-920D decoders, based on their high signal quality, low bandwidth
requirements, compact and lightweight design, advanced diagnostics
