“Cinq à sept avec Arthur” (5 à 7) is a daily news show broadcasting on Europe’s biggest TV channel, TF1. The Quicklink TX Multi allowed viewers to call in through Skype and have the chance to win prizes live on air.


The solution was provided by Alternative Developpement, an IT broadcast solutions company specialising in the development of Entertainment and TV Gameshows. The TX Multi solution allowed TF1 to introduce 12 viewers spread throughout France in order to interact with the presenter in the studio.

Aurélien Collet, Operation & Coordination Manager of AD-TV explains: “For live transmission we must rely on robust and proven hardware, so that’s one of the main reasons that we chose Quickink”

The TX Multi allowed Alternative Developpement to receive studio-grade quality video/audio transmission, helping them achieve a successful and issue free live program. As a result, Alternative Developpement are looking to implement the Quicklink TX in other projects in the near future.
