TVU NETWORKS’ FACEBOOK LIVE INTEGRATION BRINGS DAILY MASS SERVICES HOME FOR THOUSANDS IN SAN ANTONIO AND BEYOND

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – July 7, 2016 – The Archdiocese of San Antonio’s Catholic television station, CTSA (Catholic Television of San Antonio), has become the first TVU Networks’ house of worship customer to take advantage of the company’s new Facebook Live integration. Starting June 27th, the Archdiocese has been live streaming its daily Mass service over its Facebook Live account to parishioners in San Antonio and anyone else in the world looking to connect with its message.

The CTSA broadcasts locally produced video content and covers off-site events such as local graduations and holiday celebrations using its TVUPack cellular 4G/LTE portable transmitter. Using the Facebook Live integration with TVUPack, the Archdiocese’s daily Mass services are streamed to the CTSA’s Facebook page: http://bit.ly/29bW3ov.

“Adding the Facebook live component gives us a reach we could never think of achieving though traditional means,” said Dagoberto Patlan, Operations Manager, CTSA.  “The potential for viewership from Catholics from all over the world is just astounding. Not only does this serve those who are shut ins or the infirmed, but parishioners who’ve relocated from San Antonio, like serving military and college students away from home. They can now tune in either live or play the Mass back later in the day, maintaining that connection to home and to their religion. Our core mission is outreach by media channels, and the TVU Pack with Facebook integration helps us fulfill that mission – to a tee.”

CTSA’s long-term plan is to provide live streams of other events in the Archdiocese via Facebook Live, such as press conferences, prayer services and on-location programs such as World Youth Day with Pope Francis.

TVU’s portable IP newsgathering solutions enable broadcasters to capture and broadcast live HD video from virtually any location in the world over multiple cellular, satellite, microwave, WiFi, WiMax, and BGAN connections.

TVU Networks Wins NewBay Media NAB 2016 “Best of Show” Award for New Remote Production System

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – May 10, 2016 – TVU Networks, the global technology leader in live IP video solutions, won a “Best of Show” Award from NewBay Media publication TV Technology during NAB 2016 for TVU RPS (Remote Production System) – a new, cost-effective alternative solution for live, remote, synchronized multi-camera news and sports coverage.

Debuting at the NAB Show, TVU RPS eliminates the need for expensive and complex mobile truck use for production of major sporting and broadcast events. The system enables the production of a live, multi-camera program in a remote location using mainly a broadcaster’s existing control room in their studio and a public Internet connection from the field. The TVU RPS transmitter encodes up to four synchronized SDI sources and transmits high-quality and low-latency IP video from the remote location to a studio-based TVU receiver. The receiver, in turn, outputs four synchronized SDI outputs. With TVU RPS, broadcasters can utilize in-house production staff and equipment at the studio, saving significant cost in producing a remote, multi-camera live shot.

“TVU Networks is very pleased to be recognized by TV Technology for our new TVU Remote Production System,” said Paul Shen, TVU Networks CEO. “We’re proud to have launched a product at this year’s NAB that will transform the way live sports and live remote video are produced. With TVU RPS, broadcasters can achieve the same objectives of remote production for live coverage, but at a much lower operational cost without the need for an expensive, dedicated fiber link or large on-site production crew. TVU RPS allows broadcasters to expand their video coverage and transform the way live sports, news and remote video are produced.”

NewBay Media’s prestigious “Best of Show” Awards are evaluated by a panel of engineers and industry experts, and are selected based on innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry.

“Recognition with an award at the NAB Show from NewBay Media’s Broadcast & Video Group is a strong vote of confidence and admiration from our leading industry publications,” said NewBay Media Broadcast & Video Group Vice President & Group Publisher Eric Trabb.

TVU NETWORKS AND ASSOCIATED PRESS TO INTEGRATE TVU ALERT SERVICE WITH AP ENPS

TVU Alert Allows AP ENPS Users to Receive Mission-critical Message Alerts and Preview Incoming Video Streams Within ENPS

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – April 18, 2016 – TVU Networks, the global technology leader in live IP video solutions, and the Associated Press (AP), provider of the industry-leading AP ENPS multi-platform news production system, today announced that they have partnered to deliver an integrated solution designed to speed the notification of breaking news within a broadcast organization using the new TVU Alert service and AP’s ENPS. This new combined solution allows for mission-critical TVU Alerts to be sent directly to AP ENPS users and allow for the preview of incoming TVU video streams within AP ENPS. The new TVU Alert/AP ENPS integration will be demonstrated at the TVU Networks booth #SU4405 at the NAB convention this month, from April 18-21 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

TVU Alert is a new service from TVU Networks that quickly delivers enterprise-wide programming and operational alerts across multiple TVU transmitter, receiver and management devices. AP ENPS sees the TVU Alerts as urgent messages, similar to other content alerts like AP news wires. Details of a live news event including the name, description, location, event time and notes are displayed in addition to the unique ID of the transmitter and receiver. Additionally, the Alert provides users the ability to preview the live stream in ENPS.

“Today more than ever, reporting on breaking news first is what separates the most respected and ‘first choice’ news sources from their competition,” said Matt McEwen, VP of Product Management, TVU Networks. “With this new partnership, TVU Alert allows any user with a TVU device to create a short breaking news alert and send it to other TVU devices as well as AP ENPS. This allows everyone within the news organizations who has access to TVU devices or an ENPS client, such as reporters, directors, management and technical staff, to access details on a breaking story with just a mouse click. The system provides previews of incoming video streams related to breaking news within AP ENPS. We are excited to be working with the Associated Press on this new combined solution.”

“The ENPS, TVU integration allows journalists to have more critical information available to them, allowing them to focus on fast and accurate storytelling,” said Andy Wormser, Director of ENPS Product Design for The Associated Press.

AP ENPS powers more broadcast newsrooms worldwide than any other solution.
