LiveU has also partnered with UCAN Digital Transmission, based in Brazil, which helps provide audio and video delivery with either LiveU's technology or other satellite communications' solutions. LiveU provided UCAN with its portfolio of uplink solutions, which will be beneficial for local and foreign journalists reporting on the games.
"The FIFA World Cup is one of the pre-eminent sporting events on the global calendar and 2014 is no exception. This is a tremendous opportunity for media companies - be that broadcast or online or a combination of the two - to show how dynamic they can be in what's a very competitive arena, " LiveU's Latin America General Manager Giovanni Punzo said.
Global sports and news networks, news agencies, local stations and online broadcasters from international countries will use most of LiveU's technologies for the World Cup. The LiveU technology has made it possible to be controlled either live in the Brazilian host city by an operator or remotely at the home country's studio courtesy of a browser-based management system by LiveU Central.
Latin American Internet-based company TERRA has confirmed it will use LiveU's technology. With more than 100 million visitors per month, TERR's Technology Manager Allan Pessoa stated their goal is to be "very dynamic" and deliver "great content with sold facts" to their visitors.
