transmission technology. LiveU’s flagship LU70 backpack solution will

a little over a year ago, giving us the ability to transmit live from
places no one else in our market could,” said Neal Boling,
KHQ-TV’s executive director of content and operations. “In addition to
utilizing this cutting-edge technology for weather, sports and post-game
coverage, we’ve dubbed morning show talent Matt Rogers the
‘LiveU Powered Action Cam,’ as he takes suggestions from viewers on
where he should broadcast from. One unique example, which we
successfully pulled off, was having Matt live on-air while
LiveU’s flagship LU70 product is a bonded 3G/4G
LTE backpack with proprietary RF technology for transmitting up
to 1080 HD video.
