LiveU has announced a range of deployments across Spain and Portugal over 2013 and claims that 2014 looks equally promising. Spanish broadcasters RTVE and 13TV, and Medialuso in Portugal have all deployed LiveU technology to help bring live coverage to viewers.
RTVE chose LiveU’s technology as part of the selection process for España Directo. The programme has benefited from four LU70 backpack units, and the cellular uplinking technology has been used on a daily basis for live transmission.
Independent broadcaster 13TV has been using three LiveU backpack units for its news output, and Medialuso, Mediapro’s Portuguese offshoot has been using six LU70s for a range of production requirements. Media company A Bola has been using the technology for sports coverage, while clients including Porto Canal have used the solutions for live news and events broadcasting.
“2013 was a really strong year for LiveU across the Iberian Peninsula and we greatly appreciate the efforts of our partner Park 7,” said Zion Eilam, LiveU’s head of business operations Europe. “We’re very pleased to see that our technology is being used in such a variety of ways, from fast-moving sports broadcasting to innovative news coverage and on to corporate events. It truly is a new age of content acquisition.”
