The Panasonic AJ-PX270 is a handheld HD camcorder that combines the high quality and efficiency of low bit rate AVC-ULTRA recording and the flexibility of a 3G/4G/LTE wireless mobility. The integration between Panasonic AJ-PX270 P2 cameras and TVU Transceivers enables streaming from a P2 camera directly to a TVU Transceiver via cellular, WiFi or ethernet connection.

“We’re excited to expand our collaboration with TVU Networks to further accelerate remote production workflows and increase quality and efficiency,” explained Delix Joseph T. Alex, product manager, of PTZ Camera & IP Networking Systems at Panasonic. “The new integrations allow for centralization of AVC-ULTRA P2 cameras along-side AW Series PTZ cameras for a very elegant and scalable network video production system, all configurable from anywhere in the world connected to the internet.”

Each Panasonic camera has a unique network ID that communicates to the TVU Transceiver or TVU Command Center, a cloud-based management and control system. The camera provides an IP video stream, thumbnail and status to the Transceiver or Command Center. In addition, a live stream from the Panasonic P2 camera can be triggered, monitored and managed on the TVU Transceiver or TVU Command Center interface. Received P2 streams can then be distributed to other locations via TVU Grid. Grid is a scalable IP-based video switching, routing and distribution solution that enables broadcasters to acquire live video from different sources for distribution to other Grid-enabled locations. It is also possible to utilize P2 camera sources with the suite of functions available on the TVU Transceiver or the TVU Cloud service including IP streaming output (direct to Facebook Live, Periscope and other social media services), TVU Producer Pro, TVU Booking Service and more.

In a separate integration between the two companies, Panasonic’s pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) cameras such as the AW-HE130 can also be paired with TVU Vista, a routing device which provides for the streaming, management and control of IP-based PTZ cameras from remote locations. Ideal for fixed camera deployment such as traffic cameras and beauty shot cameras, Vista aggregates multiple IP connections simultaneously for high bandwidth such as cellular, WiFi, Ethernet, satellite and other IP connections. It also uses TVU’s patented Inverse Statmux + (IS+) technology for stable and resilient transmission over the public Internet.

TVU Vista allows the Panasonic PTZ camera to stream directly from the field back to the studio for decoding and processing using a TVU Transceiver. Once received at the TVU Transceiver, the PTZ camera stream can be distributed via TVU Grid to other locations or streamed to the web using the camera’s IP streaming output or used as a source for Cloud production or Social Media using TVU Producer Pro. Remote camera control for pan, tilt and zoom can easily be done back in the studio using the camera’s own control interface.

Already in use by thousands 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.

New TVU One model eliminates modem swapping and is ideal for broadcasters that frequently travel the world to cover important events and news   

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – March 14, 2018 – TVU Networks, the global technology and innovation leader in live IP video solutions, today announced a new model of its award-winning TVU One with HEVC mobile IP newsgathering transmitter. TVU One TM1000G features a global embedded modem for easy operation practically anywhere in the world. During the upcoming NAB Show, TVU Networks will showcase the new unit alongside its line of live IP video solutions in booth C1707 in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

“When we first introduced TVU One, it was our first portable live video cellular broadcast product to use embedded internal modems instead of exclusively external USB modems. With its lightweight design, easy operation and broadcast picture quality, it has become an industry favorite,” explained Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks. “In the past, depending on where in the world the TVU One was going to be used to transmit video or data, a specific set of modems had to be installed to ensure compatibility with that region’s SIMs. This of course meant that modems had to be physically swapped out if a broadcaster was planning to use their TVU Ones in a country that required a different modem configuration. With the introduction of our new TVU One TM1000G model, we are once again raising the bar by offering increased flexibility and ease of use. The global modems available in the TM1000G ensures hassle-free operation by allowing broadcasters to simply insert local SIMs wherever they are into the transmitter, and with that, they’re ready to go live.”

TVU One TM1000G includes all of the useful features of TVU Networks’ standard TVU One TM1000 IP newsgathering portable transmitter. Offering a robust set of functions designed to fit the needs of any size live video broadcaster, the transmitter is available with HEVC video compression and TVU’s patented Inverse Statmux Plus (IS+) transmission algorithm to transmit full HD quality video with half-second latency at 3Mbps. TVU One is available with embedded modems and can transmit simultaneously over multiple connections, including cellular, microwave, satellite, BGAN, WiFi and Ethernet.

Weighing just 2.2 pounds, TVU One is ideal for use with broadcasters that travel the world to transmit live coverage of important events like elections, natural disasters, and sporting events to their viewers back home. With TVU One, broadcasters can fully leverage the versatility of a small, lightweight, IP-based high-definition video field transmitter without sacrificing performance, features or picture quality.

Already in use by thousands 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.  For more information about TVU Networks solutions, please visit www.tvunetworks.com.

South Korean Broadcaster SBS Relies on TVU’s IP Video Solutions For Daily Remote Newsgathering

The South Korean Terrestrial Broadcaster Has Deployed Mobile IP Transmitters Nationally and at its International News Bureaus

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – March 6, 2018 – TVU Networks, a global technology and innovation leader in IP-based live video solutions, announces that SBS has been depending on its mobile IP live video transmitters daily for remote news production. The broadcaster has been counting on the reliability of TVU Networks’ TVUPack since 2012, and recently purchased TVU One with HEVC live mobile IP newsgathering transmitter units for transmission both nationally and at its international news bureaus.

Launched in 1991, SBS is the second commercial broadcaster in South Korea. A producer of news, sports, and entertainment coverage both nationally and around the world, the organization currently runs one digital terrestrial television station, two radio stations, and seven cable television channels, including SBS Golf, SBS E!, SBS Sports, SBS MTV and Nickelodeon Korea. SBS has been using TVU One transmitters nationally as a part of its “Morning Wide” morning news and talk show on its terrestrial station, SBS TV. As SBS expanded its global news reach this year, the broadcaster was looking for new technology for remote video acquisition from its international bureaus.

“In the past, we’ve used dedicated submarine networks for international correspondence,” explained Mr. Hak Hyeon Kim, Manager, SBS Technical Planning Team. “But as SBS expands its global news coverage, we were looking for a more cost-efficient technology that could produce vivid video, improve our news coverage capabilities, and enable our crews to easily produce and transmit video out in the field back to our studios. We had been using TVU Networks’ TVUPack video transmitters, and we found them to be easy to use and quick to deploy. Knowing that we could count on the reliability of TVU’s live video transmission technology even in challenging bandwidth environments, we recently added TVU One units into our broadcast workflow for remote video acquisition.”

SBS has added TVU One with HEVC/H.265 units to its news bureaus in Tokyo, Los Angeles, New York and Washington D.C. With the addition of TVU One with HEVC, SBS is realizing real cost savings on broadband use by taking advantage of the more efficient compression and data management inherent in HEVC encoding when compared to H.264 together with TVU’s Inverse StatMux Plus technology. TVU’s transmitters provide simple, worry-free operation to the SBS production team out in the field, and the video is easily sent back to SBS’s broadcasting center in Seoul.

SBS has depended on its TVU Networks equipment for the production of important news and live events, including the World Cup, Olympics, and election coverage leading up to and during both the 2014 and 2017 South Korean presidential elections. TVU One enables SBS to easily capture and transmit video from both its international correspondents and news team in and around Seoul.

Already in use by thousands 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.

Live Streaming Regional Emmy Award Gala from Multiple Locations Increases Viewership and Member Participation

Denver Media Center Deploys TVU One Mobile Transmitters with HEVC and TVU Receivers for Heartland Emmy Awards from Denver and Oklahoma City

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – February 7, 2018 – For its online coverage of the regional Heartland Emmy Award gala, producers literally had to be in two places at once. Each year, the Heartland Emmy awards, honoring excellent media content, are held simultaneously in Denver and Oklahoma City. To make the show as dynamic as possible, video production company, Denver Media Center (DMC), wanted the live video event to reflect the dual-location nature of the awards gala with real-time live feeds from each location.

Th Heartland EMMY Chapter galas were streamed live to the organization’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/HeartlandEMMYS/) from the Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum in Denver and from the Heritage Center in Oklahoma City. With one TVU One mobile IP transmitter in Denver and one in Oklahoma City, and TVU receivers in each location, DMC switched its coverage live between the cities for air on the Facebook page.

DMC live coverage of both galas includes speeches from award winners and red carpet walks from Oklahoma City using TVU Receivers and a video switcher. The receiver in Oklahoma City took in the master feed from Denver. Using the TVU One transmitters, feeds from both locations were distributed back and forth for creation of the live master feed, which was switched and streamed to the Facebook page out of Denver.

While DMC has produced the Heartland Emmy Awards for the past five years using TVU Networks’ equipment, the arrangement this year was a significant expansion over past years. “The first year we produced this show, we used just one transmitter in Denver and a receiver in Oklahoma City,” said DMC Co-owner Nick Arnold. “We didn’t cover the speeches or red-carpet highlights in Oklahoma City at all. Adding a receiver in both locations and a transmitter in Oklahoma City really opened up the back and forth and created a much more exciting main show.”

The amount of views on the Heartland Emmy Facebook page for this year’s gala back that up. Arnold reports over 1,000 views on Facebook, which includes a growing number from areas previously not engaged with the event.

“The Heartland Emmy Awards cover a wide section of the country,” added Arnold. “Many of the Oklahoma stations don’t attend the ceremony or submit their work for award consideration. But since the live Facebook stream from both locales this year, we’ve seen participation rise dramatically from the Oklahoma chapter. The number of people becoming members and submitting work for award consideration has gone from very little to where they’re now a huge part of our membership.”

Currently, the Heartland Emmy’s are the only Emmy show that includes multiple locations, even though other TV chapters also cover multiple large cities, particularly in the Western U.S. “We’re pioneering this idea of including more than one city in your live Emmy telecast,” said Arnold. “It’s a great model to produce a multi-location event and increase participation. With live feeds that incorporate multiple cities, everyone becomes a part of it, and they get more involved and excited about the event.”

He said after seeing the new TVU Networks’ gear at the Rocky Mountain Audio Video Expo in late October, he’s anxious to put it to work on future projects: “The TVU equipment gets increasingly smaller and easy to use year after year. The portability they provide gives us a lot of options.”

DMC produces the Heartland Emmy’s live awards presentations annually, including pre-show editing and live directing. The company also produces regional Emmy Award shows for chapters in Colorado, Texas, New England and Washington, DC.

The Heartland Emmy® Chapter honors original content created for traditional broadcast/cable mediums as well as non-traditional and emerging platforms for broadband and portable delivery.  The Heartland Emmys represent the work of broadcast media in cities including Colorado Springs, Denver and Grand Junction, CO; Cheyenne, WY; Omaha and Lincoln, NE; Topeka and Wichita, KS; Oklahoma City and Tulsa, OK.

The new TVU One live mobile IP transmitter with integrated HEVC compression replaced DMC’s existing TVU mobile units. Featuring TVU’s patented Inverse Statmux Plus (IS+) transmission algorithm, TVU One can deliver HD quality video with half-second latency at 3Mbps. It can transmit simultaneously over multiple mediums, including cellular, microwave, satellite, BGAN, WiFi and Ethernet.

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.

found what it was looking for in TVU Networks, and CBS recently purchased the TVU Networks’
TVU One mobile IP video transmitter.

“We chose TVU Networks because their easy-to- use IP transmitter delivers the best picture
quality and most reliable transmission in the industry,” said Sang Hwan Lee, Deputy Manager,
Digital Engineering Department, CBS. “CBS prides itself on being the leading broadcaster of
Christian content in Korea – from original programs and sermons, to specials and teachings. Our
diverse mission programs have fostered the growth of the Korean church. We’re using our new
TVU One to reach more people and better connect with our audience. With TVU’s integrated
solution, we’re able to capture and transmit video for broadcast and for sharing on social media
platforms, including Facebook and YouTube, as well as for live streaming content.”

CBS’ news department is using the TVU One for production of its real-time news show, Daily
Nocutnews, from the field. TVU One is helping CBS easily create video content that appeals to its
mobile and web viewing audience, in addition to traditional broadcasting viewership. CBS
provides programs via cable and satellite to the Korean peninsula and other parts of East Asia.

“We’re very pleased that CBS has chosen our flagship IP video transmitter, TVU One, to improve
its operations,” said Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks. “Being able to share news and events online
in real-time gives CBS a whole new way to strengthen its viewership.”

Featuring the company’s patented Inverse Statmux Plus (IS+) transmission algorithm, the award-
winning TVU One delivers high-definition picture quality with 0.5 second latency at 3Mbps
within an ultra compact and rugged hardware design. It uses HEVC/H.265 compression standard
to deliver greater efficiency in data use and increased transmission stability, and can transmit
simultaneously over multiple mediums, including cellular, microwave, satellite, BGAN, WiFi and
Ethernet. With TVU One, CBS can fully leverage the versatility of a small, lightweight, IP-based
high-definition video field transmitter without sacrificing performance, features or picture quality.
