Zee implements LiveU uplink

Presented at Broadcast Asia this week, Indian satellite TV network Zee is implementing LiveU’s flagship LU60 uplink technology to provide enhanced live news and entertainment content for its satellite channels. With a large number of TV subscribers in India and a popular online entertainment portal, Zee also broadcasts internationally to other countries around Asia-Pacific, EMEA and the Americas. Manny (Menashe) Mukhtar, LiveU’s VP Sales for APAC, said, “Zee is a household name in India and recognised as one of the most innovative entertainment channels in Asia. It’s exciting to see how LiveU is helping Zee to bring more live coverage of news, sports and entertainment events to millions of viewers inside and outside of India.”  “With satellite bandwidth constraints for SNG use, LiveU provides the missing link for broadcasters for their newsgathering operations. Not only existing but emerging news channels now depend on LiveU for daily newsgathering”, added Ajay Jain, CEO, Lamhas Satellite Services, LiveU’s Indian distributor. Zee News joins LiveU’s other broadcasting customers in India, such as Times Television Network (Times Now, ET Now).
