LiveU seals $20M multi-year deal with Sinclair Broadcast
Sinclair Broadcast Group recently signed a multi-year lease agreement with LiveU that upgrades its fleet of hundreds of portable transmission units to LU600 HEVC bonded IP for its newsgathering operations.
The agreement immediately upgrades Sinclair stations spanning 80 production locations in the US to LiveU’s flagship model of HEVC field units. Sinclair has been a LiveU customer since 2011 and has grown with LiveU.
“From the beginning, Sinclair recognised the value that LiveU technology provides to our news gathering and content operations. It is the commitment of the people at LiveU who develop and support the product that make the difference. We value our relationship with the company’s COO & co-founder, Avi Cohen and LiveU. This deal is a recognition of the value LiveU brings to our content operations,” said Del Parks, SVP chief technology officer for Sinclair.
Avi Cohen said, “we continue driving the IP revolution by providing our customers with the best performing live newsgathering bonded cellular solution available on the market. We look forward to Sinclair’s continued success with our technology.”
