Parent Category: News | 19-02-2014

NFL Media, which operates the American football league's broadcast, Web and mobile media outlets, has selected 3G/4G/LTE mobile cellular uplink solutions from TVU Networks as part of its live broadcast activities during future NFL games including the Super Bowl, as well as pre-game, post-game and training camp coverage.

TVU's IP-based video transmission solutions include the TVUPack TM8200 ENG backpack; TVUPack Mini; the TVU Grid IP video switching, routing and distribution solution; and TVU Anywhere, which enables organisations to instantly capture and transmit footage from iOS and Windows mobile devices.

NFL Media says it selected TVUPack due to "its performance in challenging RF environments such as stadiums and its ease of use".

TVUPack has been used to deliver live HD footage for a range of ad hoc events around the world including the 2010 FIFA World Cup, the 2012 London Olympics, various US presidential elections, Hurricane Sandy coverage and the 2013 Papal conclave.
