Associated Press has expanded its deal with video-over-mobile provider LiveU in a move that will allow its global network of journalists to stream real-time broadcast quality content to its London hub.

The deal will include a range of professional broadcast technology devices including a backpack uplink unit with full high definition capability, and technology to convert a laptop into a live video transmission unit.

The investment will allow AP to deploy more than one unit on the same story which it hopes will provide a “fuller picture” of unfolding events.
