The recent U.S. Papal visit to Washington D.C., Philadelphia and New York City proved to be one of the most televised events of 2015. LiveU acted as a key contributor of live video solutions for the visit by providing customers with a wide range of equipment, on-site support, and enhanced connectivity with secured hotspots in each city of the Papal visit. With dedicated Wi-Fi and LiveU’s team of professional engineers providing on-site support for the entire duration of the visit, customers never had to worry about losing connection or having trouble with one of their LiveU units.
LiveU serviced 15 major national and international broadcasters, providing supplementary rental transmission units, LiveU Xtender external antennas, and several secured hotspot connections for dedicated Wi-Fi throughout the event.
LiveU’s on-site support team was equipped with back-up units and parts and was even able to provide last-minute unit rentals on the scene of the visit. In addition, LiveU’s secured hotspots in each city provided broadcasters with an extra layer of redundancy with dedicated Wi-Fi in each of the three cities in which the Papal appeared. Overall, LiveU and their customer had much success in the historic broadcasting of the U.S. Papal visit.
