LiveU Matrix gives broadcasters access to NASA TV’s live Apollo 11 feed
On Friday 19 July NASA TV will broadcast ‘NASA’s Giant Leaps: Past and Future – Celebrating Apollo 50th as we Go Forward to the Moon,’ a live special highlighting the most-celebrated mission to the moon. Broadcasters will have the ability to pick up the official NASA live feed over IP for free via the LiveU Matrix content management and distribution service.
“We’re honoured to help promote NASA’s amazing Apollo 11 Anniversary event,” said Mike Savello, LiveU’s VP of sales, Americas. “With LiveU Matrix, broadcasters can access high-quality live video and immediately distribute the content without sending a crew to cover the event. Instead, they can receive the official NASA feed and integrate components into their live newscast.”
Since launching in April 2019, LiveU Matrix has been adopted by major news organisations including CBS, CNN, Cox Media Group, Meredith Corporation, Quincy Media, Sinclair Broadcast Group, and others.
NASA TV will broadcast live from Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the historic Apollo mission control room at Johnson Space Center in Houston and the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. The live special will tell the story of how NASA got there and how they will get there again.
