LiveU has played a pivotal role in the live coverage of the US Presidential Election.

With a mix of LiveU portable transmission solutions, including its HEVC units, bonded LU-Smart app, and LiveU Matrix, the company's IP contribution and distribution solution, around 700 broadcasters from around the world were able to provide comprehensive live news and updates of the highly publicized election worldwide.

"LiveU experienced an unprecedented 16,540 live streams on Election Night," said Mike Savello, LiveU VP of Sales, Americas. "This year has challenged our broadcast customers to approach live newsgathering in unique ways. The pandemic has changed studio environments, crew allocation, budgets, and workflows. What has remained consistent is LiveU's ability to provide high-quality, flexible solutions that news organizations can rely on, especially to cover high-profile news and events."

By the Numbers
The 2020 Election brought record-breaking numbers in the utilization and value the LiveU solutions delivered compared to the 2016 Election – a 35% increase in portable transmission units’ usage to 2,764 units from 1,800 in 2016 and an over 30% increase in simultaneous live streams to 1,760 from 1,200 in 2016.

LiveU Matrix Shines
LiveU Matrix proved to be mission-critical on Election Night with nearly 500 customers consuming 3,700 live feeds for distribution to local, national and global news broadcasts. The platform delivered more than 12,000 hours of video over the course of election day without interruption. LiveU’s global cloud-based video management and distribution platform allows global news teams to share high-quality, low-latency live feeds with multiple internal and cross-organizational end points.
