UK Systems Integrator to Offer Integration of TVU’s IP-Based Live Video Uplink Equipment Into Its Technical Vehicles
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – June 14, 2016 —TVU Networks, the global technology leader in live IP video solutions, announced today that it has entered into a partnership with leading UK-based satellite and broadcast systems integrator, Sat-Comm. Specialising in SNG vehicles, Flyaways and OB Systems, Sat-Comm will offer the entire range of TVU Networks IP-based live video uplink solutions to the Broadcast and Government sectors, including integration with broadcast vehicles.
The addition of TVU Networks’ equipment to Sat-Comm’s technical vehicles bolsters Sat-Comm’s dedication to innovation and impressive technical design. With the pressures on newscasters to gather content efficiently and economically, TVU’s solutions offer Sat-Comm customers an IP infrastructure, enabling users to transmit, route, distribute and manage their footage with ease.
Tim Williams, Managing Director, Sat-Comm, said, “Here at Sat-Comm, we pride ourselves on the range of solutions we offer to our customers. The introduction of video over cellular data has drastically improved the way video content is transmitted, especially in news broadcasting which led us to follow TVU Network’s progression and prowess in other countries. Working with TVU Networks, reinforces Sat-Comm’s credibility to our hybrid vehicle offerings. We were particularly enamoured with TVU GRID, which enables broadcasters to bring all of their contribution feeds together for ease of internal distribution. All in all we feel that the current range of TVU solutions offers the best in terms of picture quality, size, weight, price and distribution, and we could not be happier to be working with them.”
Paul Shen, CEO of TVU Networks, said, “We are really excited to partner with Sat-Comm and to be able to offer our cellular live video uplink solutions as a part of Sat-Comm’s product offerings. Today’s broadcasters need flexible and cost-effective options for live video content acquisition, transmission, distribution and management. Integrating traditional satellite or microwave with cellular 4G/LTE in a OB van for live broadcast adds valuable flexibility and redundancy. I am thrilled that TVU Networks will help continue the quality service Sat-Comm provides to its customers.”
