TVU Networks Receives NewBay Product Innovation Award for New TVU Timelock Technology

Solution was introduced this fall as part of the company’s commitment to expanding its At-home/REMI remote production solution offerings

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – December 15, 2017 – TVU Networks, the global technology and innovation leader in live IP video solutions, is the recipient of NewBay’s Product Innovation Award from TV Technology. TVU Networks has been honored with an award for its new TVU Timelock technology – which enables multiple TVU Transmitters to synchronize together at a set latency, allowing mobile and wireless At-home/REMI productions without being tethered. With TVU Timelock, broadcasters are able to do more live video production at a fraction of the cost of traditional on-location multi-camera production which typically requires much more equipment and personnel.

TVU Networks introduced TVU Timelock for the first time at the NAB Show New York in October. The technology was unveiled as part of the company’s commitment to expanding its At-home/REMI remote production solution offerings. With it, multiple camera crews can roam throughout a production area covering live events and transmit using TVU mobile cellular transmitters like its TVU One to standard TVU Transceivers, which output synchronized SDI or IP outputs.  TVU Timelock enables entire remote events to be produced from a control room in a separate location. The solution joins TVU RPS in the company’s remote production solution offerings.

“TVU Networks is honored to receive this NewBay Media award,” said Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks. “We’re proud of the solutions that we’ve brought to market this year, and it’s nice to have TV Technology recognize TVU Timelock as a new innovative solution in the industry.”

Now celebrating its fifth anniversary, NewBay’s Product Innovation Award recognizes excellence in manufacturing of products to serve the TV/pro video and radio/online audio industries. Winners are selected by a panel of professional users and evaluation criteria include innovation of concept and design, creative use of technology, price value, and suitability for use in a broadcast TV/pro video or broadcast/online radio environment.

Already in use by hundreds of leading broadcast organizations around the world, the TVU Networks family of IP transmission solutions give broadcasters and organizations a powerful and reliable tool to distribute live video content to broadcast, online and mobile platforms. The TVU Networks suite of solutions has been used to deliver professional-quality live HD footage of a number of important events around the world including the World Cup, both Summer and Winter Olympic Games, U.S. presidential elections, natural disasters, the 2013 Papal conclave, the Super Bowl, the 2015 Papal visit to the United States and several international sporting events.  For more information about TVU Networks solutions, please visit: www.tvunetworks.com.

Japan’s Yomiuri TV Selects TVU One with HEVC for Live Video-Over-IP Remote News Coverage

Resiliency, Picture Quality and Operational Cost Efficiency Put TVU at the Head of the Pack

Based in Osaka, Yomiuri Telecasting serves the Kansai region of Japan and was the first station to be affiliated with Nippon Television Network.

“We conducted multiple road and motion tests to simulate remote news coverage with transmitters from several major manufacturers, and the TVU One with HEVC was, by far, the most reliable among them,” said Mr. Sugimoto, Technical Director, Yomiuri Telecasting Engineering department. “The image quality was excellent and a key factor in our decision.

It uses less data, with less overhead and performs with greater stability than ever before.

mobile and web viewing audience, in addition to traditional broadcasting viewership. CBS

to deliver greater efficiency in data use and increased transmission stability, and can transmit
