One of Tunisia TV’s most iconic programmes is the political talk show
International Issues. The channel recently used the Quicklink TX during the talk show, to bring remote contributors into a live debate to discuss political issues.
The Quicklink TX, from Quicklink Video Distribution Services, is a video call
management system designed for use in broadcast studios and other professional
environments. The Quicklink TX enables the sending or receiving of Skype calls as
SD/HD SDI or HDMI video with embedded or balanced analogue audio. The system
provides accessibility to distant participants so that they can contribute live from any Skype enabled device, which greatly reduces production costs.
On Tunisia TV’s International Issues talk show, the Quicklink TX
enabled live interviews with two guests located in Germany and Geneva. Moncef
Khemiri, engineer at Tunisia TV explains why the channel chose the TX: “The unit
was able to provide us a professional quality Skype broadcast that we previously
were unable to achieve with live interviews.’
Khemiri added: “The quality of the Quicklink TX is good. It’s a cost effective solution for the TV station as satellite transmission costs can be high in comparison.’
