HACKENSACK, N.J.: Sinclair
Broadcast Group has deployed ENG backpacks from LiveU for use at its stations
nationwide in covering local news.
LiveU’s LU60 cellular ENG
backpack is the company’s flagship product and reportedly the first bonded
3G/4G LTE backpack with proprietary RF technology. It is designed to offer up
to 1080 HD video and sub-second latency for a satellite-like experience.
“Our local news departments strive to deliver the
highest quality news product to our viewers,” said Del Parks, Sinclair Broadcast Group vice president of
engineering and operations, in a press release. “LiveU’s LU60
technology provides us with an efficient and nimble way to get our reporters
out into the field, bringing the news home to our viewers in the quickest
manner possible. “
The LU60 packs were
deployed to over 20 Sinclair stations throughout the country, and were chosen
for their consistency and resiliency.
