BT Sport has created a fleet of cellular newsgathering (CNG) vehicles using mobile uplinking technology from LiveU. Working with Garland Partners, three Vauxhall Astra cars have been fitted with the LU500 backpack unit and Xtender remote antenna technology.
Each LU500 can be connected wirelessly, at distances of up to 300 metres, or via Ethernet, to the Xtender that sits on top of each vehicle. BT Sport chief engineer Andy Beale said: “We now have a fleet-footed and effective way of allowing sports journalists
to get the story back to us.
We value the flexibility and speed of deployment of the LiveU solution.”
