How tech brings you a better world cup

There must be dozens of countries around the world, that every 4 years have hopes of getting to the World Cup Finals but continuously miss out.

Israel is a strong member of that not-so-unique contingent. In fact, similar comments can be made of it efforts at the Olympics. Far more is spoken and written than actually done…done, that is on the playing fields and track.

You see, Israel often has a major part at these sporting triumphs, although the role is confined to behind the scenes. For example, for the past decade, numerous companies from the Holy Land have secured contracts for security at the Olympics, and this includes software and hardware providers. 

South Africa 2010 is no exception to the rule. LiveU is based north of Tel Aviv and connects real time video links to any camera within seconds. Barely in operation 4 years, by January 2010, their tech was used to capture behind the scenes action at the Grammy awards.

And as the current footballing grand prix plods on, LiveU has taken tens of its units to the World Cup. Clients renting their “black box” include media giants such as NBC and AP. Another line of sales are buses showing games as they are played.

40 workers, a growing line of investment partners and a small office in America. Amazing how simple it can be if you want to make it big. And millions around the world are now benefitting.
