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.

"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.
