San Francisco 49ers Select TVU Networks to Expand and Improve Live Video Transmission Capabilities

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.”

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.

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.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – November 9, 2015 – TVU Networks®, the global technology leader in live IP video solutions, will showcase its popular video-over-IP solutions at Inter BEE 2015 (International Broadcast Exposition) November 18-20th at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba City, Japan. TVU Networks will join its Japanese reseller Star Communications K.K. in Booth #2201 during the show.

“This marks the fifth year we’ve had a presence at this show,” said Hiroki “Rick” Asahina, Senior Director of Business Development for Asia-Pacific, TVU Networks. “We remain very committed to the Asian market. Our systems are currently in use by some of the largest news broadcasters in Japan, including Nippon Television and other key stations in Tokyo and Osaka.”

Added Asahina, “We also have a strong presence in other APAC regions. We are the market leader in countries such as China, Korea and Taiwan and several of our existing customers have purchased additional TVU equipment to expand their newsgathering capabilities.”

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.

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.

Taiwan’s First 24-Hour News Network Selects TVU Networks to Expand Mobile IP Video Transmission Capabilities

TVBS Adds Ultra-Lightweight TVU One as well as App-Based TVU Anywhere to Suite of TVU Networks IP-Based Video Solutions Deployed in Taiwan

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – October 6, 2015 – TVU Networks, the global technology leader in live IP video solutions, today announced that Television Broadcasts Satellite (TVBS), the first 24-hour news network in Taiwan, is expanding their TVU Networks suite of IP-based live video broadcast solutions by deploying multiple units of TVU One, TVU’s newest, ultra-compact mobile transmitter and TVU Anywhere, TVU’s smartphone-based app which broadcasts live from a mobile device with the push of a button.

TVBS, a nationwide cable TV network in Taiwan, has been using TVUPack cellular uplink backpacks since 2010. TVBS will expand their mobile newsgathering capabilities and breaking news coverage by also deploying TVU One, which provides the same industry-leading transmission resiliency, performance, video picture quality and sub-second latency of a full-size TVUPack backpack transmitter, but in the most powerful and smallest form factor IP video transmitter available. Additionally, reporters for TVBS will use TVU Anywhere, a smart device-based app that allows broadcasters to turn their personal smartphone into a high quality, low latency professional video transmitter to capture live news as it’s happening, from virtually anywhere.

“At TVBS, we have built our reputation for over 20 years as the first and the leading 24-hour news network of Taiwan. We have been using TVUPack for over 5 of those years and have been very impressed with not only TVU’s solutions, but also with the relationship they have established and maintained with us throughout the years,” said Bruce Lin, Manager, Engineering. “We have evaluated other products and in order to achieve the kind of agility, convenience and portability we were in search of, we knew that the newest innovation from our longtime IP video solutions provider was the best selection.”

Added Lin, “We were drawn to the TVU One because of its portability, incredible video picture quality provided by Inverse StatMux Plus and the ease with which the TVU One operates. We will continue to use TVUPack but will now have even greater agility when rushing to capture breaking news, as we’ll be armed and ready with the super small and lightweight, TVU One, as well as all of the smartphones and devices equipped with the TVU Anywhere app. The TVU Anywhere app will be very useful for our New Media department, as it increases our ability to capture news from anywhere. We are confident that through our relationship with TVU Networks, we have the best mobile live transmission quality in the industry.”

“We are honored that TVBS has chosen to expand their TVU wireless uplink solutions to our newest innovations. As a very respected news network, both in Asia and around the world, TVBS needs the highest quality live video solutions to continue to produce the very best broadcasts. We are able to equip TVBS with precisely what they need and with the convenience they require. This is a prime example of our continued commitment to Taiwan broadcasters and also enhancing the flexibility and capabilities of broadcasters around the world,” said Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks.

TVU One is a fifth generation, live, mobile IP newsgathering transmitter based on the same reliability, HD picture performance, and under one second latency of a full-size TVUPack backpack transmitter, but in a substantially smaller, lightweight and ultra-compact form factor. TVU One also features TVU’s proprietary Inverse StatMux Plus (IS+) for a broadcast quality picture even in a moving vehicle. With TVU One, broadcasters can fully leverage the versatility that a small, lightweight IP video transmitter brings in the field, without sacrificing performance, feature functionality or picture quality.

TVU Anywhere is designed to turn a portable smart device or laptop instantly into a HD video transmitter. TVU Anywhere is a powerful tool that enables organizations to instantly capture and transmit footage from anywhere at anytime. Using cellular of wireless connection and WiFi when available, TVU Anywhere delivers HD video with the push of a button and without the need for traditional hardware.

Murrow Awards since 1971, this year TVU Networks’ TVUPack® TM8200 mobile uplink backpack transmitter will stream the entire ceremony exclusively for live and on-demand viewing at http://www.rtdnaedwardrmurrowawards.org/

The event will be held on October 12, starting at 7:00pm in New York City’s renowned Gotham Hall. The Radio Television Digital News Association will honor national and regional radio, television, and online news organizations with Murrow Awards.

“With TVU providing live transmission services, we’re 100 percent confident our live streaming coverage will be of the highest quality. Our online video broadcast is a very important part of the event. It enables people who may not be able to make the gala to see and be a part of this truly special night in journalism history,” said Mike Cavender, Executive Director, RTDNA.

“We’re proud to be aligned with the RTNDA and firmly support its mission to promote excellence in journalism,” said Eric Chang, Vice President of Marketing, TVU Networks. “The Edward R. Murrow Awards are a prime example of what the RTNDA is all about – honoring the nation’s top news organizations for their compelling and often extremely difficult work. Having our TVUPack live stream this extraordinary event for public, online viewing is our honor.”

The TVUPack TM8200 is also available with optional integrated MIMO Microwave for challenging cellular bandwidth environments.

The TVUPack 8200 also streamed the Paul White and John F. Hogan Awards ceremony during the RTNDA’s Excellence in Journalism conference held September 19th in Orlando. The event honored noted journalists Leslie Stahl (receiving this year’s Paul White award) and Pierre Thomas (receiving the John F. Hogan award.) The entire ceremony was streamed exclusively to the RTNDA’s Ustream channel in real-time. The video is available for on-demand viewing on RTDNA’s website at www.rtdna.org.
