TV New Zealand invests in new portable transmission Technology
TVNZ is among the broadcasters in New Zealand which have just upgraded their portable transmission technology throughout the country. TVNZ has recently doubled the number of LU200 units in the field with plans to adopt LiveU as its predominant method for live feeds in the coming months.
Lindsay Chalmers, TVNZ’s GM Enterprise Operations, said “LiveU has been a game changer in giving us live capability directly from where the news story is developing. Its performance has been so impressive that it’s allowed us to rethink many of our pre-conceived ideas on delivering lives”.
LiveU LU200s weigh just over 500 grams and available in a pouch or camera-mount configuration. It is being used by the media for news and sports coverage, such as the recent protests over TPPA legislation, live casts from Fiji after Cyclone Winston, and live coverage and remote production of local rugby games.
