NEW DELHI, Mar. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ —

– LiveU has become the de-facto standard for cellular-based live video
transmission with a high number of LU60 mobile uplink units deployed
throughout India

Convergence India (Hall 10, Booth K70) — LiveU ( ), the
pioneer of portable video-over-cellular solutions, today announced that its
flagship LU60 video uplink solution is used by leading broadcasters and news
agencies in India, such as Times Television Network (Times Now, ET Now).

LiveU’s LU60 mobile backpacks are in operation throughout India,
transmitting live coverage of breaking news and high-profile events, including
the recent New Delhi bombings, sports events such as the 2011 Cricket World Cup
and election campaigns. The local networks and news agencies also service
international media based in India, enabling foreign correspondents to
broadcast live back to their worldwide newsrooms as soon as incidents occur.

Indian networks also use LiveU technology outside India taking their units
abroad to cover news like recent events in the Maldives. They benefit from
LiveU’s international network as well, using local units to cover relevant
events for their domestic audience, such as the ‘Salute to India’ Parade in New
York City, the World Economic Forum in Davos or Indian Cricket matches in

Times Television Network’s Mr. Rajat Nigam, Sr. Vice President, Technical &
Broadcasting Operations, says, "We’re increasingly using LiveU to cover news
and other events across continents both within India and abroad. Thanks to
LiveU’s portability, we don’t have any limitations getting to the scene quickly
– all we need is a cameraman and a backpack. This has enabled us to gather news
footage from different parts of globe in a most cost-optimum manner. We find it
effective to use LiveU units which are supported by a proactive and efficient
response time from LiveU partners across territories; we have been enriching
the content by acquiring the same from international territories like Davos,
New York, and Australia. I am sure with the 3G medium getting stronger in days
to come, use of solutions like LiveU will become more popular than the
traditional mode of video feed transportation."

LiveU’s LU60 mobile uplink unit offers highly resilient HD live video
quality with sub-second delay, providing sustained live video transmission in a
range of scenarios, such as on-the-move, dense urban areas, remote locations
and extreme weather conditions.

an increasingly important market for LiveU, with cellular-based technology
offering an excellent cost-performance ratio compared to traditional satellite
truck. We’re very encouraged by the take-up of LiveU technology which has gone
hand-in-hand with the rapid growth of India’s cellular industry."
