Chelsea TV, Chelsea Football Club’s TV channel, is using LiveU cellular uplinking technology to provide live video coverage of its games. LiveU’s LU70 units have been used to transmit pre- and post-match interviews with managers and players at home and abroad. LiveU was recently used to cover the club’s July tour of the US. Chelsea TV used the technology to send content back to the station’s facility at the club’s Stamford Bridge ground in London – switching between Wi-Fi and 3G networks – and also taking advantage of the Store and Forward facility. The content was then used to provide up-to-date news and live coverage. LiveU’s technology was previously tested during latter stages of the club’s journey in the UEFA Champions League – including the final – as well as the club’s victory in the FA Cup. It was used to flesh out coverage from both the UK and across Europe. The technology was first used by the channel for additional coverage of the FA Youth Cup semi-final against Manchester Utd. Richard Bignell, head of Content & Production for Chelsea TV, said: “We worked extensively with the technology at the end of last season to fully test and understand the benefits. Given the range of coverage we need, because of the obvious demands of a dedicated channel like Chelsea TV, it allows us to provide footage that is otherwise more complex.”www.liveu.tv
