Spanish Broadcasters turn to LiveU

Easy deployment made LiveU’s technology and cost effectiveness key to Spanish election coverage.

LiveU has announced that Live Audiovisual (LIVE!) has provided extensive coverage of recent local and regional elections in Spain with the large-scale deployment of LiveU technology across the country. The project was overseen by regional LiveU partner Park 7.

Major national and regional media turned to Live Audiovisual and LiveU, including: Mediaset; Atresmedia; Forta; Xarxa; 13 TV; RTVCyLeon; TV Extremadura; and El País.

Live Audiovisual facilitated the coverage of both last-minute campaigning as well as the evolving overall picture on election day and night with tens of LiveU units working simultaneously as the day progressed. Units from across the company’s range were deployed, including the small but powerful LU200. They were used both independently as well integrated with Ka-band flyaway technology.

LiveU’s technology has been widely deployed globally for election coverage as media outlets recognize its power and flexibility. This includes a major partnership with Sky News for the recent UK general elections as well as for elections in India, Greece, and Sri Lanka.

Following on from its recent success, and in order to provide enhanced service, Live Audiovisual is now rolling out its network of offices at over 10 locations in Spain, all with IPDSNG flyaway Ka-band equipment integrated with LiveU units.

LiveU owns the patent for cellular bonding for remote news gathering in the US and other countries. All LiveU products are based on this fourth-generation patented technology.
