MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/14/14 -- TVU Networks, the global technology leader in live mobile electronic newsgathering (ENG) solutions today announced that Nippon Television Network Corporation has deployed TVUPack 3G/4G/LTE ENG solutions in its regional bureaus around the globe to expand its ability to deliver live coverage of important breaking news and events around the world.

As Japan's first private broadcast organization, Nippon Television has a longstanding reputation for utilizing innovative technologies to enhance its broadcast capabilities. In order to expand its ability to deliver relevant coverage of important global reaching stories, Nippon Television has deployed TVUPack transmitters in its bureaus in New York, Los Angeles, London, Seoul, Beijing, and Bangkok. The broadcaster has plans to deploy additional TVUPack units at its remaining global bureaus in the near future.

"As a global news organization, the ability to deliver live video from any location at any time is essential. TVUPack enables our correspondents to not only report on breaking stories, no matter where they happen, but to report on them in interesting and innovative ways," said Mr. Naoki Yazawa, Head of International Satellite Operations, Foreign News, News Division, Nippon Television Network Corporation.

After evaluating multiple cellular ENG products, Nippon Television selected TVUPack because of the system's flexibility, ease of use and ability to deliver a strong and resilient transmission. "Our correspondents love TVUPack's simplicity and one-button operation. The fact that the system works with any combination of cellular, WiFi, or satellite network enables us to plan ahead and ensure that we have a successful live shot, regardless of the location," explained Yazawa.

Nippon Television has used the TVUPack extensively to deliver live coverage of important breaking news in several countries, including presidential elections in Seoul, South Korea, the Asiana airline crash at San Francisco International Airport, the birth of the royal baby in London, the Trans-Pacific Partnership ministerial meetings in Singapore and the International Olympic Committee meeting in Argentina that selected Tokyo as the host of the 2020 summer games.

"TVUPack has become an integral part of our live broadcast strategy. We plan to use the solution extensively in the coming months. For instance, TVUPack will be an important part of our broadcast strategy at the upcoming Sochi winter games, as it enables us to deliver more creative and exciting live transmissions from each of the venues," said Yazawa.

Already in use by hundreds of leading broadcast organizations around the world, the TVUPack family of IP transmission solutions gives broadcasters satellite and microwave TV truck functionality in a lightweight, portable and untethered form. TVUPack is the original one button operation backpack, is simple to use and provides broadcasters with low-latency, HD-quality signal that enables them to broadcast live at any time and from any location. The TVUPack family of solutions has been used to deliver professional-quality live HD footage of a number of important events around the world including the World Cup, the London Summer Games, U.S. presidential elections, Hurricane Sandy, and the 2013 Papal conclave.
