LiveU delivered over 15,000 hours of live broadcasting, over 30,000 live sessions and 36TB of live transmission, with their LU600 4K HEVC solution. This enabled customers to broadcast more with less data. Customers used this to follow the teams, interview the players and fans, and capture the atmosphere with daily live feeds.
The company provided customers in the 12 host cities, with bandwidth guarantees for superior connectivity. The offering included an add-on priority SIMs package for streaming live video, enabling customers to reach 20Mbps uplink, and deliver HD live feeds from crowded locations. LiveU had a dedicated technical team on site, managing the logistics and providing 24/7 support, with two designated distribution centers in Moscow and St Petersburg. The project was overseen by the company’s local partner, MediaProject Ltd.
Samuel Wasserman, CEO and co-founder, LiveU, said, “HEVC technology worked throughout the tournament, showing its capabilities for live sports coverage in challenging conditions. Much of the customer feedback we received, highlighted the signal quality in and around the stadiums, as well as our portability and cost-effectiveness.”
