Televisa adopts Tandberg system
Mexican broadcaster Televisa is incorporating Tandberg Television’s Voyager Lite D-ENG solution into its day-to-day live broadcast operations. Voyager Lite is a backpack D-ENG system designed for wireless cameras and remote news gathering that allows camera operators to shoot from almost any location. Televisa used the system to broadcast live coverage from the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. Voyager Lite weights only 4 pounds, and since it is wire- and cable-free, it gives camera operators greater range.
