TV Berlin uses LiveU video

TV Berlin, the German city’s local channel, has vastly increased use of live content in its broadcasts courtesy of the channel’s deployment of LiveU’s LU60 technology. The channel is now using the technology for live feeds during a daily news show and also longer live segments for the channel’s breaking news show. Mathias Adler, general manager, TV Berlin, said, “Before we started using LiveU we simply couldn’t broadcast live from many events because SNG units and satellite capacity is simply too expensive for a local TV channel. LiveU allows us to include completely new elements in our programming, which significantly raises the quality of our broadcasts. New ideas are also developing now we understand the possibilities that the technology allows, particularly broadcasting live while on the move.” Zion Eilam, LiveU’s key account executive, said, “We have heard much discussion about hyper local broadcasting and our technology opens up new possibilities for local TV channels. LiveU’s high performance levels give broadcasters the confidence to fully explore all the possibilities that the technology opens up.”
