RUV, KFV and KNR Deploys LiveU's Technology

LiveU has announced that RUV, KFV and KNR – the public broadcasters of Iceland, The Faroe Islands and Greenland, respectively, have all turned to LiveU in order to significantly increase their ability to provide live content to their viewers. The KFV and KNR deals have been overseen by LiveU's partner in the region, Avit Systems. RUV, based in Reykavik, Iceland, and distributed by DTT, IPTV and over the internet, is using LiveU's LU500 solution. KFV is using solutions from across LiveU's range, including LU500, LU400 and LU-Smart, as well as LiveU Central. The Faroe Islands are rugged and mountainous so KFV needs highly stable and robust technology to bring live news – and sometimes sports content - to its viewers. KNR, based in the capital Nuuk – is using small form factor LU200 technology to allow the broadcaster to operate live from anywhere in the city.
