In what LiveU has described as the largest ever deployment of its solutions, hundreds of LiveU 5G/4G units have been booked by global broadcasters for 4K/HD live coverage of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, which is taking place from November 20 to December 18.
LiveU’s solutions will be deployed to broadcast main feeds from stadiums with the official CRA (Communications Regulatory Authority) tags and its cloud-based services will play a key role in the production workflows, notably the use of LiveU Matrix for IP video distribution of live feeds to global takers.
LiveU’s crew will also be on-site to support customers and engage with the technical aspects directly involved in the broadcast of the games, using its innovative technology. LiveU will also be transmitting from the fan zones, enabling creative fan engagement for millions of sports fans all over the world.
Ronen Artman, VP Marketing, LiveU, said, “We’ve seen unprecedented demand for our solutions this year, most notably from the football-loving nations of Latin America, as well as from elsewhere around the world.
“Our goal is to give customers peace of mind with the most reliable, highest quality and flexible broadcast solutions so that they can deliver the best viewing experience to their viewers. Our customers will be relying on our solutions for their 24/7 content.
“With fans eager to see every aspect of the games, LiveU technology will make sure that they enjoy the best viewing experience possible!”
