ENG specialist TVU Networks has announced that the company is offering special TVUPack rental packages for broadcasters looking to cover the Winter Games taking place in Sochi, Russia, in February. With this special rental package, broadcasters will be able to leverage TVUPack to deliver live video from more locations as they cover the games.
