MOUNTAIN VIEW, CALIF. — TVU Networks has expanded its operations to deliver the TVUPack cellular uplink mobile video solutions to sports leagues, teams, venues and broadcasters to enable them to capture and broadcast live video content over multiple broadcast and online platforms.

The changing media landscape has increased demand for video content of games and other functions including pre-game, post-game, practices and other team related activities, especially among younger audiences. To help meet the demand, NFL Hall of Famer and professional broadcaster Ronnie Lott has joined TVU Networks to help the company to deliver solutions tailored to the sports market.

“Live video content is in high demand, and as such, sporting organizations and sports media outlets are moving fast to adopt mobile streaming technology to meet that demand,” said TVU Networks CEO Paul Shen.

A number of sports broadcasters around the globe rely upon TVUPack to deliver live video content. In addition to being used by traditional sports broadcasters, TVU has added a number of professional sports organizations, including the National Hockey League and Major League Soccer.
