Uplinking LiveU, the pioneer in IP-based portable live video acquisition, contribution and management solutions, have announced that Irish national broadcaster RTÉ has chosen cellular uplinking technology from LiveU to play a central newsgathering role. The project has been managed and supported by LiveU’s Ireland partner, Tyrell. RTÉ News has already deployed LiveU’s LU500 portable uplink solution and has ordered a LU200 for use with its Ka-band fl yaway kit. In addition it’s using LU-Smart smartphone app licenses. Piotr Kaszynski, Technology Manager with RTÉ, said, “We began testing systems with the arrival of 4G, which in turn has improved 3G availability. That led us to choose LiveU for several reasons, specifi cally for its superior performance and the range of products. We wanted a small, very portable solution that could fi t on the back of a camera. The LU500 does exactly this and overcomes the issue of cameramen having to carry a heavy backpack. The LU-Smart app also attracted us. We can see varied applications for this and we are training all our journalists to be fl exible in what they use and how they can take advantage of LiveU technology. The support offered by Tyrell and LiveU was also crucial.” Need Help?
