LiveU Selects Pacific Live Media as Sole Distributor for Oceania

LiveU has selected the specialist contribution vendor Pacific Live Media as their sole distribution partner for the Oceania region starting July 1, 2016. An existing partner of LiveU, Pacific Live Media has excelled in sales, service and support of LiveU’s customers in the region which covers Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.

Doron Meirom, LiveU’s VP Sales, APAC, said, “We are excited to continue our existing relationship with Pacific Live Media, and further strengthen our market position by consolidating our focus into a single, highly skilled partner.”

Meirom continued, “Chris Dredge at Pacific Live Media, has been central to the establishment and success of LiveU over the years, and his knowledge and passion for LiveU puts him at the leading edge of vendors in this space.”

LiveU is used by Sports and 24-hour news channels in Australia, and holds the leading position with broadcasters in New Zealand and Fiji. In addition to its well-known news gathering credentials, LiveU is set to revolutionise the sports streaming and online media market with the imminent introduction of the LiveU Solo, a direct to web, bonded cellular encoder.

Chris Dredge, Managing Director of Pacific Live Media said “With LiveU, we have always had the most flexible and reliable multi-modem transmission system in the market, and our customers successfully cover the full range of content from live, breaking news, right across the media spectrum to local sports and events. The release of LiveU Solo is going to further enable this emerging market with affordable, reliable multi-modem uplink for live web streaming. Pacific Live Media is honoured to represent LiveU exclusively, but mostly we are just excited about what we can do to help customers’ with their live events.”

LiveU owns the patent for cellular bonding for remote news gathering in the US, Europe, China and other countries. All LiveU products are based on this fourth-generation patented technology. Existing distribution arrangements remain in place until the end of June 2016.
