MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA –TVU Networks, the global technology leader in live IP video solutions, today announced that the NFL’s Carolina Panthers have partnered with TVU to deploy TVUPack wireless uplink backpack to provide HD video solutions for the Charlotte, North Carolina-based team. The Panthers deployed TVUPack to capture and transmit professional-quality video from post-game press conferences and interviews, as part their weekly Game Day wrap-up show. After careful evaluation of live mobile video solutions, the Panthers selected TVUPack because of the solution’s ease-of-use, low latency and picture quality.

“TVUPack has enabled our organization to instantly connect with our dedicated and loyal fanbase better than ever before,” said Berkley Dickens, Broadcast Engineer for the Carolina Panthers. “The Carolina Panthers Television Network broadcasts Game Day programs during the season and provides fans with extensive coverage of the Panthers throughout the year. Most recently, we used the TVUPack for an away game on the opposite side of the country and once again, we were blown away by the picture quality, transmission speed and one-button operation of the pack.”

Added Dickens, “With TVUPack, we can shoot footage at a post-game press conference from any location, watch it as it’s happening from our Charlotte control room and immediately incorporate it into our weekly Game Day show. We simply could not do this type of mobile production without the phenomenal reliability of the TVUPack. We tested and evaluated another solution and from the moment we tried the TVUPack, we were so impressed with the technology, the reputation of TVU Networks, the quality of the pack and the ease with which the pack is operated, we had made our decision as to which solution we would be using, moving forward. I’m not new to the television industry and I remember how difficult it used to be to get a live shot from across town. It’s amazing to have this technology at our fingertips, have the flexibility to shoot from anywhere and have complete confidence in the finished product.”

“We are honored to be the IP video solutions provider of choice for the Carolina Panthers,” said Ken Valdiserri, VP of Sports Business Development, TVU Networks. “The Panthers are having a terrific season and their loyal fans are excited. Every week, Panthers fans want to see exclusive interviews and footage of their favorite team and we’re thrilled that TVUPack is making that possible. TVU Networks has a great reputation with professional sports and we have been very lucky to work with some of the most exciting teams in the NFL. This partnership with the Carolina Panthers is no exception and it’s truly a testament to our dedication of providing the highest quality of mobile video to our customers and to sports fans everywhere.”
