Going green from the sky in an end-to-end video solution

How Hong Kong’s Environment Protection Dept uses LiveU’s technology and drones to protect the environment and conserve national conservation areas

The Challenge

The Environment Protection Dept (EPD) in Hong Kong is responsible for monitoring, evaluating and protecting the environment and raising awareness for green initiatives. In urban areas, the department’s policies are easier to implement, however, in the farmlands and mountainous areas of the New Territories – largely uninhabited and not easily accessible – protecting the environment was a logistical challenge. With the increase in garbage and pollution having a negative impact on air and water quality, and the environment in general, the EPD looked for simple and effective solutions to carry out their policies in remote areas.

The Solution

EPD selected LiveU’s LU800 flagship production-level field unit and compact LU300 HEVC units to transmit live video from DJI drones (M300RTK and Mavic 2 Enterprise models), flying around the New Territories region and streaming live video back to the headquarters. The drones are controlled remotely with the video streamed and fed through LiveU units to EPD’s in-house video management platform, where they are integrated with the relevant data. LiveU was chosen for its reliability and the complete solution and service provided by its local partner Chinam, which oversaw the integration and compatibility with the drone vendors and streaming cloud platforms. Using the LiveU/drone solution simplified and automated the department’s work, enabling it to protect the environment cost-effectively over a wide area.

The Challenge

The Boston-based higher education institution is ranked among the top schools in the country for its Journalism program. In order to remain competitive, the school wanted to offer its students practical experiences covering breaking news, politics, sports, entertainment and other popular beats. Live hits are a crucial part of the coursework and cannot be learned solely in the classroom.

LIVEU SOLUTIONS FOR EDUCATION

The Solution

The department augmented its curriculum with the integration of live broadcast technology from LiveU inside and outside the classroom. The Presidential Inauguration was the first deployment of the technology, and then the school took it to Super Bowl media week, where students were able to live stream the pre-event press conferences featuring interviews with New England Patriots Quarterback, Tom Brady and Half-time Performer, Lady Gaga to YouTube.

"You can’t get better experience than using the real tools to cover real-life news. Students learned quickly that ‘this was not a drill.’ You have hard deadlines, an online audience and public onlookers watching you deliver real news. Students were able to deliver live shots and make the content look like we used satellite or microwave trucks to produce it."
