IP newsgathering is being put to the test to supplement broadcast coverage of the 2012 London Olympic Games.
Video-over-cellular transmission done with systems from LiveU, Dejero and others are assisting a wide variety of broadcasters with reports from the venues and stand-up positions around London.
LiveU, along with its exclusive UK partner Garland Partners, has further enhanced its technology for the Olympics using QoS SIM cards. LiveU also is using dedicated network resources, supplied by Broadnet Communications.
Dejero and 7th Wave have built out a long-range private Wi-Fi network at 7th Wave's rooftop location overlooking the Olympic Park that to provide broadcasters with coverage across the park and surrounding areas. Using Dejero's LIVE+ mobile transmission products on the private Wi-Fi network, broadcasters have the ability to transmit live video directly into 7th Wave's media center, where it can be uplinked to any destination around the world.
