LiveU Matrix is a flexible and cost-effective solution for the newsroom, making live content management simple and affordable and ensuring service reliability and availability.
LiveU Matrix, the company’s IP-based content sharing platform has been chosen by the European News Exchange (ENEX) to share live news feeds with its members, a major global association of commercial TV news broadcasters. Its members share their news content and their news production resources.
ENEX provides nearly 40,000 news videos each year and more than 3,500 live sources to its members. Feeds are easily selected by ENEX from sources around the world – including the US – with up to four feeds made available.
LiveU Matrix is a flexible and cost-effective solution for the newsroom. It combines a front-end with a reliable IP cloud-based transport layer, integrating into daily workflows, allowing news teams to share and consume high-quality live feeds with multiple internal and cross-organisational endpoints. It’s offered as a fully managed end-to-end service with proactive monitoring and 24/7 support through LiveU’s NOC (network operations centre). The Matrix solution leverages LiveU’s vast global reach across the broadcast market with a large installed user base.
Using Matrix increases the number of live sources for the partner to choose from, with up-to-the-minute live news valuable in terms of viewer engagement.
Speaking about the deployment, Adrian Wells, Managing Director ENEX, said: “We’re always looking for ways to deliver more and better services to our partners. LiveU is a very powerful player in IP delivery with many of our stations already familiar with the company. Matrix brings new choices to newsrooms and content sharing. We are delighted with this new initiative.”
