Sinclair Broadcast Group signs a multi-year lease agreement with LiveU that upgrades its fleet of hundreds of portable transmission units to LU600 HEVC for newsgathering operations.
The multi-million dollar agreement covers Sinclair stations spanning 80 production locations in the US and upgrades them to LiveU’s flagship HEVC field units. Sinclair has been a LiveU customer since 2011.
“From the beginning, Sinclair recognized the value that LiveU technology provides to our news gathering and content operations. It is the commitment of the people at LiveU who develop and support the product that make the difference. This deal is a recognition of the value LiveU brings to our content operations,” said Del Parks, SVP CTO for Sinclair.
“As Sinclair Broadcast Group has expanded its footprint, LiveU is there to ensure its stations have the latest cutting-edge technology to deliver maximum image quality at any bit rate and compete within their local markets,” said Avi Cohen, LiveU COO. “We continue driving the IP revolution by providing our customers with the best performing live newsgathering bonded cellular solution available on the market. We look forward to Sinclair’s continued success with our technology.”
