TVUPack Provides the Most Dependable and Reliable IP Video Streaming Solution For NFL Franchise

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – January 12, 2016 – TVU Networks, the global technology leader in live IP video solutions, has partnered with the San Francisco 49ers to deploy TVUPack wireless uplink backpack to provide live HD video solutions for the team. The 49ers deployed TVUPack at the beginning of the 2015 football season, in an effort to better capture and broadcast professional-quality video from post-game press conferences and interviews to stream live to the 49ers website. After using a competing live mobile uplink backpack solution, the 49ers decided to upgrade to TVUPack because of the dependability and professional-quality picture it provides.

“TVUPack has enabled us to more easily cover post-game press conferences and instantly stream the exclusive footage back to our website and our mobile app,” said Trey Dillen, Producer of the San Francisco 49ers. “We are eager to incorporate TVUPack into our live web shows, and our organization is excited to use TVUPack to capture exclusive training footage in the future, as well. We’ve only just begun to see the endless possibilities of what we can capture and provide to our fans through this partnership with TVU.”

Added Dillen, “We had been using another wireless backpack solution but decided that we needed an IP video solution with ease-of-use, faster boot-up, sub-second latency, better cellular transmission in congested wireless environments and excellent picture quality. I had seen other major sports organizations using TVUPack on game day and decided to test it. Now TVUPack is a critical part of our production set up every week. It’s so easy to use. To put it simply, TVUPack just works.”

“TVU is a dedicated partner to major professional sports organizations. As a Bay Area-based company, we are very excited about this partnership with the San Francisco 49ers,” said Paul Shen, CEO of TVU Networks. “Through our close partnership with the 49ers, we will be able to continue to develop new and more technologies that are needed by the professional sports market so that they can better serve their fans. We are honored to be the portable live video solution provider of choice for the 49ers.”

TVUPack IP Video Solution Live Streams Double Eleven Celebration to China Audience

TVU Networks’ Global Footprint Expands as More Users Advance to HD Video Uplink Solutions

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – November 30, 2015 – TVU Networks, the global technology leader in live IP video solutions, today announced that its mobile uplink device, TVUPack, is emerging as the solution of choice globally when it comes to live video broadcast. While TVUPack has been widely deployed by television broadcasters around the globe, TVU mobile cellular solutions are increasingly being deployed wherever live IP based video transmission is desired.

China’s Largest Online Retailer, Alibaba sold a record $14.3 Billion USD in merchandise on Double Eleven (also called China’s Singles Day, 11/11 or Eleven Eleven) and celebrated in style with a large televised gala, which was streamed live to Chinese viewers, using TVUPack. Double Eleven shopping bonanza has grown tremendously since China’s retailer giant, Alibaba began promoting it as a shopping day in 2009. This year, a record number of foreign brands participated in the largest shopping day in the world, through the Alibaba sites. More than 40,000 merchants from 25 countries participated in the shopping day on Alibaba shopping platforms.

In the lead up to the event, Alibaba hosted a four hour TV variety show in celebration of the shopping festival. The star-studded gala known as the “2015 Tmall 11/11 Global Shopping Festival” was streamed live to Chinese viewers throughout the country, using TVUPack. In attendance were Alibaba executives and founders, celebrities, a representative from the Zhejiang Commerce Department, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Sony, Phillips and several other esteemed guests and corporate executives.

TVU Networks is evolving at the speed of news and has solidified a strong presence at the very forefront of IP video innovation. The way TVUPack is being used outside of typical broadcast is becoming increasingly unique. Some of the most unique video footage captured by TVUPack, to date, has been as a result of TVU Networks’ strategic partnership with DJI, the world’s most respected drone manufacturer. This joint partnership resulted in the global release of the world’s first Aerial Newsgathering Pack to transmit live HD video from a portable, flying drone pack to practically any location. This groundbreaking partnership includes full integration of the entire TVUPack family of IP video solutions with each DJI drone solution – including the most intelligent and most powerful Phantom series.

TVUPack’s flexibility, portability and professional picture quality, combined with DJI’s next-generation drone technology, enables organizations to quickly deploy drone technology into their existing production workflows. This joint solution provided live mobile transmission capabilities to DJI during the highly anticipated launch event for the Phantom 3 drone series. During the event earlier this year, Phantom 3 drones transmitted live aerial video from Santorini, Singapore and Hollywood to simultaneous live events being held in Munich, London and New York City, using TVUPack transmitters and TVU Grid live IP video distribution solution.

As new and innovative uses of TVUPack continue to emerge, a major benefit reported by customers across all verticals is TVUPack’s ability to seamlessly integrate into any organization’s workflow. Recently, Absolute Live Productions, a seasoned and respected film and television company based in Burbank, California, specializing in professional multi-camera livestream solutions, used TVUPack on the production of a soon-to-be-released film for a major Hollywood studio. With TVUPack, Absolute Live Productions was able to constantly stream the footage captured by the filmmakers, in its entirety to the film’s producer, as he was required on set of another long-running television project at the time. Through the dependable, HD livestream provided by TVUPack, the producer of the film was able to view and monitor the film’s dailies and progress from another location, essentially being in two places at once and working on two projects simultaneously, making the impossible, possible.

The award-winning TVUPack is a modular IP newsgathering solution that enables broadcasters to capture and broadcast live HD video of interviews and events over multiple cellular, satellite, microwave, WiFi, WiMax, and BGAN connections, giving organizations and individuals the satellite or microwave TV truck or van functionality in a lightweight backpack. TVUPack features TVU’s proprietary Inverse StatMux Plus (IS+) technology designed to deliver a dependable HD quality picture with under one second latency.

Already in use by hundreds of leading broadcast organizations around the world, the TVU Networks family of IP transmission solutions gives 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.

Television Broadcasts Satellite (TVBS), the first 24-hour news network in Taiwan, has been using TVUPack mobile uplink backpack transmitters since 2010. They recently deployed multiple units of TVU One, TVU’s newest, ultra-compact mobile transmitter and TVU Anywhere, a smartphone-based app which broadcasts live from a mobile device with the push of a button.

South Korea’s leading broadcast network, YTN, used TVU Network’s Global Rental Program to purchase TVUPacks for real-time capture and broadcast delivery of the recently completed Eurasia Friendship Railway Project. Through TVU’s Rental Program, YTN’s team was able to report live from Vladivostok, Moscow, Warsaw and Berlin.

TVU and Star Communications will demonstrate TVU solutions including TVU One, TVU’s newest compact mobile IP newsgathering transmitter. Introduced at NAB this April, TVU One is now in production and currently shipping in quantity.

TVU One features the same proprietary Inverse StatMux Plus (IS+) technology, designed to deliver a live HD-quality picture with subsecond latency, as other popular TVU solutions, such as the MLink fixed rack IP-based video transmitter and TVUPack mobile uplink backpack transmitter. Inverse StatMux Plus enables the transmission of dependable HD quality video with less than one second latency through multiple transmission mediums including cellular, satellite, microwave, MIMO Mesh, WiFi, Ethernet and BGAN – even in the most bandwidth challenged environments including a moving vehicle.

TVU One is the company’s fifth-generation live mobile IP newsgathering transmitter. It delivers the same transmission resiliency, performance, picture quality and sub-second latency of a full-size backpack transmitter in a substantially smaller and lighter form factor. TVU One features TVU Networks’ patented Inverse StatMux Plus (IS+) transmission algorithm, Smart VBR technology, and the TVU.264 video codec. It’s available with embedded modems can transmit simultaneously over multiple mediums.

TVU Networks provides a full portfolio of video-over-IP solutions designed to give broadcasters innovative, flexible and reliable tools to acquire live video content from anywhere and distribute it to anywhere.

The company’s flagship product, the TVUPack TM8200 backpack transmitter, combines TVU’s proprietary IS+ advanced Forward Error Correction algorithm with the TVU264 H.264 encoding engine, to enable users to maximize the bandwidth available in each network connection and transmit the most stable picture possible. It supports multiple 3G/4G LTE, microwave, satellite, WiFi and BGAN data connections. The TM8200 is also available in two alternative versions with integrated Vislink hybrid microwave and MIMO Mesh microwave.

Among the company’s recent innovations is the TVU Grid – a scalable IP-based video switching, routing and distribution solution that enables broadcasters to acquire live video from different sources and distribute it to other news stations. Accessible through a web browser, TVUGrid provides the ability to seamlessly switch live, professional-quality video streams with as low as sub-second delay over IP networks to one or more Grid-enabled news stations anywhere in the world as the news is happening. TVU Grid is also compatible with the TVU Booking Service for simple and automated scheduling of live video feeds.

Other products in the TVU line up include: the MLink cellular 3G/4G LTE, satellite and microwave live video uplink transmitter; TVU Anywhere – an application that turns laptops and smart devices into transmitters; and TVUMe, an online marketplace for broadcasters to find and purchase live or recorded video content online from other broadcasters, freelancers and independent production crews from around the world.

Already in use by hundreds of leading broadcast organizations around the world, the TVU Networks family of IP transmission solutions gives 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.

NFL Franchise Deploys TVUPack for Live IP Video Streaming

TVUPack Provides Increased Flexibility, Reliability and Video Quality For Carolina Panthers’ Weekly Broadcasts

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – October 29, 2015 – TVU Networks, the global technology leader in live IP video solutions, today announced that the NFL’s Carolina Panthers have partnered with TVU to deploy TVUPack wireless uplink backpack to provide HD video solutions for the Charlotte, North Carolina-based team. The Panthers deployed TVUPack to capture and transmit professional-quality video from post-game press conferences and interviews, as part their weekly Game Day wrap-up show. After careful evaluation of live mobile video solutions, the Panthers selected TVUPack because of the solution’s ease-of-use, low latency and picture quality.

“TVUPack has enabled our organization to instantly connect with our dedicated and loyal fanbase better than ever before,” said Berkley Dickens, Broadcast Engineer for the Carolina Panthers. “The Carolina Panthers Television Network broadcasts Game Day programs during the season and provides fans with extensive coverage of the Panthers throughout the year. Most recently, we used the TVUPack for an away game on the opposite side of the country and once again, we were blown away by the picture quality, transmission speed and one-button operation of the pack.”

Added Dickens, “With TVUPack, we can shoot footage at a post-game press conference from any location, watch it as it’s happening from our Charlotte control room and immediately incorporate it into our weekly Game Day show. We simply could not do this type of mobile production without the phenomenal reliability of the TVUPack. We tested and evaluated another solution and from the moment we tried the TVUPack, we were so impressed with the technology, the reputation of TVU Networks, the quality of the pack and the ease with which the pack is operated, we had made our decision as to which solution we would be using, moving forward. I’m not new to the television industry and I remember how difficult it used to be to get a live shot from across town. It’s amazing to have this technology at our fingertips, have the flexibility to shoot from anywhere and have complete confidence in the finished product.”

“We are honored to be the IP video solutions provider of choice for the Carolina Panthers,” said Ken Valdiserri, VP of Sports Business Development, TVU Networks. “The Panthers are having a terrific season and their loyal fans are excited. Every week, Panthers fans want to see exclusive interviews and footage of their favorite team and we’re thrilled that TVUPack is making that possible. TVU Networks has a great reputation with professional sports and we have been very lucky to work with some of the most exciting teams in the NFL. This partnership with the Carolina Panthers is no exception and it’s truly a testament to our dedication of providing the highest quality of mobile video to our customers and to sports fans everywhere.”

The award-winning TVUPack is a modular IP newsgathering solution that enables broadcasters to capture and broadcast live HD video of interviews and events over multiple cellular, satellite, microwave, WiFi, WiMax, and BGAN connections, giving organizations and individuals the satellite or microwave TV truck or van functionality in a lightweight backpack.
