TVU Networks Signs Deal With NFL Media

TVU Networks have announced that they have signed a deal with NFL Media to deploy TVUPack 3G/4G/LTE mobile cellular uplink solutions for NFL Network and other online and mobile new media platforms.
"There is a strong demand from NFL fans around the world for more access to live and instant video content that provides greater transparency and access to our 32 teams than ever before," said Glenn Adamo, Vice President, Media Operations of the National Football League. "With TVUPack, NFL Network is able to meet that demand not only in our broadcast properties, but also across Web and mobile platforms bringing fans closer to the teams."
NFL Media, which among other properties operates NFL Network, NFL.com, and NFL Mobile selected TVUPack due to its performance in challenging RF environments such as stadiums and its ease of use.
NFL Media will use TVUPack not only as part of its live broadcast activities during NFL games including the Super Bowl, but also for pre-game, post-game, and training camp coverage as well.
"Led by former NFL great Ronnie Lott, the TVU sports team has a strong track record for providing innovative live IP video solutions for sports leagues, collegiate athletics and broadcasters. As a technology provider for NFL Media, we look forward to a long and close working relationship with the league as it expands its ability to deliver live video to fans around the world," said Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks.
