APT keeps Korean broadcaster connected

APT, the codec specialist within the WorldCast Systems group, has supplied a total of eight WorldNet Oslo multi-channel audio codecs to Korean telecoms giant, LG U+, for coverage of key sporting events including the London Olympic games.   LG U+ provides telecom infrastructure to Korea’s major broadcasters such as KBS and SBS and had originally purchased several Oslo units from APT’s Korean distributor PI International for the 2012 Asian Games in Guangzhou, China.   For the Olympic games, additional Oslo units were purchased, this time with APT’s SureStream technology.   Despite using a fiber network to deliver their 4 Mbps of audio data, LG U+ still suffered occasional loss of connection events but, as they had enabled SureStream on their WorldNet Oslo units, they were able to ensure that the service was not interrupted.   A spokesperson for LG U+ explained: “Supplying services to important customers at such high-profile events, it was extremely crucial that we could provide high quality, low latency audio and seamless service to our customer. That is why we selected the WorldNet Oslo from APT and we are very satisfied with the units’ performance and how easy they were to install and operate.”
