LiveU (www.liveu.tv), the leader in portable live video-over-cellular solutions, has announced its 2014 live video support for high-profile sporting events around the world. With technologies tailored to the sports market, including acquisition, transmission, special rental packages and end-to-end workflows, the company can accommodate the requirements of media outlets, and professional, and collegiate sports organizations.
In 2014, LiveU will support the Winter Olympics early in the year at Sochi, Russia, numerous US Collegiate Championships, The Super Bowl, the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, and additional events throughout the year. US activities are driven by LiveU’s experienced team of veterans from within the sports industry.
Samuel Wasserman, LiveU’s CEO, says, “Right from the outset when we introduced our cellular uplink technology at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, our technology provided a new level of opportunity and creativity that sports broadcasters and online outlets embraced with open arms. For the 2010 South Africa World Cup we deployed over three dozen cellular bonding units. The level of deployment at the 2012 London Olympics was truly spectacular with over 100 units on the ground during the games. We expect even bigger numbers at the 2014 Brazil World Cup.”
