TVU to Provide Full Slate of Live Video Services During Super Bowl Week
Leader in Mobile Live Acquisition, Transmission and Distribution to Provide Local San Francisco Bay Area Support for Broadcasters Covering Super Bowl 50 Related Activities
TVU Networks, the global technology leader in live mobile IP newsgathering solutions, today announced that it is making available an extensive level of video uplink and distribution services for its customers and other professional broadcasters planning to transmit live from the Super Bowl host city of Santa Clara as well as in and around the San Francisco Bay Area. Super Bowl 50 taking place on February 7 promises to be one of the most watched global events in 2016 with the golden anniversary of Super Bowl and the well-known and popular host location of the Bay Area. In addition to the on-site support TVU normally provides for major events, TVU will fully utilize its headquarters in Mountain View, CA — just 10 minutes from Levi’s Stadium and near other planned Super Bowl event venues such as the Moscone Center, Bill Graham Civic Auditorium and the SAP Center, TVU Networks is effectively positioned to provide on-location and on-demand service and support for its full line of IP based live video transmission solutions.
