We were able to achieve a consistently high quality live transmission as well as having the real element of surprise.

Riverside Television facilities, which handles independent production for TV3 Ireland, has been successfully using Quicklink’s Merlin Backpack Encoder to film live sequences for the hit TV programme “Neville’s doorstep challenge”. The TV show, based around a surprise home makeover to an unsuspecting TV3 viewer was making use of the Merlin backpack to transmit 4Mb of live content from location.

The crew at Riverside TV said not having to rely upon a large satellite van and lots of equipment helped with the element of surprise, allowing them to turn up at a house Live on air with nothing but the Merlin backpack and 6 x 3G SIM cards.

“The show was a massive success and everyone is extremely pleased with the performance of the equipment on the 3G network in Ireland,” said Cyril O’Regan, Managing Director of Riverside TV. “We were able to achieve a consistently high quality live transmission as well as having the real element of surprise. This is a something that has never been done before and the results were brilliant.”
