HACKENSACK, N.J., Nov. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- LiveU, a leader in live video streaming and remote production, has played a pivotal role in the live coverage of the US Presidential Election.

The 2020 Election brought record-breaking numbers in the utilization and value the LiveU solutions delivered.

"LiveU experienced an unprecedented 16,540 live streams on Election Night," said Mike Savello, LiveU VP of Sales, Americas. "This year has challenged our broadcast customers to approach live newsgathering in unique ways. The pandemic has changed studio environments, crew allocation, budgets, and workflows.
