LiveU Matrix Gets Set to Distribute Derek Chauvin Trial Live Feeds to Global Audiences
LiveU, in partnership with the Minneapolis Pool, will offer customers four camera feeds from the courthouse media center covering the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter in the George Floyd death case. The three courtroom camera iso feeds and a switched clean feed will be sent to the media center (located across from the court room) where a LiveU LU800 will transport four video streams and distribute them to global customers via LiveU Matrix IP cloud video management and distribution platform.
“LiveU has been the trusted transmission solution for broadcasters to deliver high-quality high-profile breaking news to global audiences,” says Mike Savello, LiveU VP of Sales, Americas. “This trial is one of the biggest global news events in the last few years. With COVID restrictions, it is crucial for our customers to get instant access to the content and quality video for their newscasts.”
The death of George Floyd, an African American man who was pinned to the ground under Chauvin’s knee, sparked worldwide protests against systemic racism and police brutality. The highly anticipated trial will begin on Monday, March 8th.
“The introduction of the LU800 production-level field unit has enabled our customers to effectively cover more ground by supporting up to four fully frame-synced feeds in high resolution from a single unit,” adds Savello. “LiveU Matrix increases efficiencies by letting news teams reliably share multiple live feeds across internal and cross-organizational endpoints through the public Internet. The combination of hardware and software tools provide a powerful all-in-one live transmission, content management, and distribution solution for our customers.”
