The Heartland chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) recently held its regional Emmy Awards Galas to recognize outstanding achievement in the television industry. With events held in both Denver and Oklahoma City, the NATAS Heartland Regional Emmy Awards were streamed to Facebook Live using TVU Networks’ TVUPack live video mobile uplink solution.
NATAS Heartland has been using TVU Networks’ video transmission equipment for its regional Emmy galas for three years, and opted to take advantage of the company’s new Facebook Live integration capabilities this year to further its award show reach.
“We wanted to stream our show on a platform that was easy to communicate with our members, and also as a means of outreach to potential future membership,” said Blaine Howerton, president of the Board of Governors, NATAS Heartland. “We were happy to be able to share the excitement surrounding our show with the TVUPack’s Facebook Live integration. We’ve always received great customer support from TVU Networks, and I would recommend TVU Networks’ technology for any video professional looking to do live video transmission without the hassle and expense of a satellite or microwave truck.”
