The TVU Anywhere app for capturing and streaming live video and the TVU Server have been acquired by Vegas Stats & Information Network for its live remote coverage and updates.
VSiN, dedicated to delivering actionable sports betting news, information and analysis, broadcasts live from its studio at the South Point Hotel Casino and Spa in Las Vegas. Both solutions were used by VSiN for the first time for a live report from Churchill Downs during 2019’s Kentucky Derby. TVU Anywhere and TVU server were also deployed for the live remote coverage of the 2019 Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland.
“With TVU Anywhere and TVU Server we can set up live interviews and updates at a moment’s notice,” said Brian Rogers, Executive Producer at VSiN. “Due to the expansion of sports betting and the number of events in different markets, we must be able to set up quick and seamless live shots in many locations without full crews. Although we just started using our TVU gear in May, we already foresee expanding its use. It’s easy to operate and integrates smoothly into our workflow. We’re producing linear, broadcast-quality, live interviews and hits with iPhones and iPads. And our need for live and remote programming just continues to grow.”
“We’re thrilled to be part of this exciting venture of which live streaming is such a key component,” added Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks. “Their fan base relies upon timely video updates as well as the expert commentary provided by the VSiN anchors to make informed betting decisions. Broadcast-quality video will attract viewers beyond their core audience to the site. Reliable, live video is absolutely critical to their current and future success.”
