LiveU announces one of the largest call-ups of its products thanks to the Qatar 2022 World Cup
The call from broadcasters around the world has prompted the company LiveU to assemble the largest deployment of its equipment for a single sporting event in its history. We are referring to the Qatar 2022 World Cup, of course.
Broadcasters plan to use LiveU’s solution for main feeds from the stadiums with the official CRA (Communications Regulatory Authority) tags. LiveU’s cloud-based services will also 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 service hub in central Doha for Qatar 2022 World Cup will provide support and rental units with unlimited data plans, together with LiveU’s local partner, Resolution Hire. The LiveU’s multinational support team will be providing on-site local support in multiple languages and across all competition venues.
“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!”, Ronen Artman, VP Marketing, LiveU.
As an example, LiveU has highlighted several concrete success stories. Vívaro Video is a company that brings together television and telecommunications professionals. In Qatar, it has 15 clients covering the Qatar 2022 World Cup, 50% of which are Latin American rights holders. Rodrigo Peralta, CEO TVTEL, Vivaro Video, has highlighted that they are trusting in the reliability, quality, and support that LiveU provides. For the coverage of this World Cup, Caracol Colombia distributes content for its news, sports and entertainment platforms thanks to LiveU units, including LU800 and LU300, and with servers in Colombia and Qatar.
