Vegas Stats & Information Network (VSiN) Uses TVU Networks For Live Remotes

The TVU Anywhere Live Streaming App and TVU Server deliver immediate updates for VSiN’s live-news and analysis of actionable sports betting events.

TVU Networks recently announced the Vegas Stats & Information Network (VSiN) is using TVU to produce live remote coverage and updates for its growing audience.

VSiN broadcasts live from its studio at the South Point Hotel Casino and Spa in Las Vegas. Channels dedicated to delivering actionable sports betting news, information and analysis use the TVU Anywhere app for capturing and streaming live video from live events with the TVU Server.

VSiN’s first use of TVU Anywhere and TVU Server was a live report from Churchill Downs during this year’s Kentucky Derby when a Derby favorite was injured and unable to compete. That news shifted the gambling odds. Using TVU Anywhere and TVU Server, the VSiN on-site reporter delivered the news immediately on the VSiN network. The TVU solution was also used for the network’s live remote coverage of The 2019 Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland.

“With TVU Anywhere and TVU Server we can set up live interviews and updates at a moment’s notice,” said Brian Rogers, Executive Producer at VSiN. “Due to the expansion of sports betting and the number of events in different markets, we must be able to set up quick and seamless live shots in many locations without full crews. Although we just started using our TVU gear in May, we already foresee expanding its use. It’s easy to operate and integrates smoothly into our workflow.  We’re producing linear, broadcast-quality, live interviews and hits with iPhones and iPads."

Rogers believes the TVU Anywhere and TVU Server solution’s ability to quickly deliver late-breaking news and live interviews is of significant benefit to both the network and its audience. He said it will also enable VSiN to better cover sports betting markets across the country by allowing additional contributors to provide commentary and live updates prior to and during events.

“We’re thrilled to be part of this exciting venture of which live streaming is such a key component,” said Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks. “Their fan base relies upon timely video updates as well as the expert commentary provided by the VSiN anchors to make informed betting decisions. Broadcast-quality video will attract viewers beyond their core audience to the site. Reliable, live video is absolutely critical to their current and future success.”
