TVU Networks to Demonstrate Complete Line of IP Video Solutions at BIRTV 2015
Company’s Award-Winning Mobile Solutions On Display In Multiple Partner Booths, Including Aerial Drone Manufacturer DJI
SHANGHAI, CHINA – August 17, 2015 – TVU Networks, the global technology leader in live mobile IP newsgathering solutions, is participating in its fifth consecutive BIRTV in Beijing, China. TVU will display its video-over-IP solutions at several booths, including the Century Sage Scientific System booth 8A02, STR International booth 3011, Beijing Hualin Stone-Tech booth 1B115 and DJI booth 8A20. The TVU family of IP-based, live video mobile uplink solutions are available in different form factors and configurations to meet the needs of any size global broadcaster.
The award-winning TVUPack TM8200 backpack style and the newest ultra-compact, TVU One transmitters use Inverse StatMux Plus (IS+) to transmit dependable HD quality video with less than one second latency through multiple transmission mediums including cellular, satellite, microwave, MIMO Mesh, WiFi, Ethernet and BGAN. TVU transmitters can deliver predictable and consistent HD quality video at under one second latency over cellular connections even in the most bandwidth challenged environments including a moving vehicle.
TVU Networks’ newest innovation, TVU One is a fifth-generation, live, mobile IP newsgathering transmitter based on the same transmission resiliency, performance, and under one second latency of a full-size TVUPack backpack transmitter, but in a substantially smaller, lightweight and ultra-compact form factor. With TVU One, broadcasters can leverage the versatility that a small, lightweight IP video transmitter brings in the field, without sacrificing performance, feature functionality or picture quality.
In challenging cellular bandwidth environments such as crowded stadiums, dense urban centers and remote locations, TVU offers TVUPack TM8200 with optional integrated MIMO Microwave to overcome the most bandwidth challenged environments while providing the ability to transmit live video on the go. Multiple-In Multiple-Out antenna technology allows for portable and convenient set up of a localized mesh network for added transmission resiliency. With the ability to aggregate both cellular and microwave connections, TVUPack with MIMO Microwave Mesh combines proven, award-winning IP based 3G/4G LTE cellular broadcast with specially designed IP radio transmission technology that is self-forming and self-healing, meaning that it’s extremely easy to set up and responds to changing conditions.
TVU will also display its TVUPack TM8200 with Vislink Hybrid Microwave Technology, offered through its partnership with Vislink.
TVU’s family of IP-based video transmitter solutions also includes a fixed-rack mount. TVU MLink is a cellular 3G/4G LTE, satellite and Microwave live video uplink transmitter designed for fixed deployment in vehicles or in a studio. It is a one RU rack unit, capable of aggregating the transmission signals from multiple transmission mediums simultaneously. With the same performance, quality and functionality as the TVU One and TVUPack, TVU MLink transmits optimized HD video stream that results in superior resiliency and picture quality.
Designed to instantly turn a portable smart device or laptop into a transmitter, TVU Anywhere is a powerful tool that helps broadcasters to instantly capture and transmit footage from anywhere, at anytime. The TVU Anywhere app aggregates available cellular and WiFi connections to record live video and transmit to a TVU receiver or transceiver. The app also automatically records and stores the video to the media directory of the device for future playback or distribution. TVU Anywhere instantly turns any reporter with a smartphone into a reporter with a transmitter.
In a given production environment where live, IP based video switching, routing and distribution is required, TVU Grid enables users to efficiently switch and route HD video from various remote locations through a user-friendly web interface. Developed to provide unlimited scalability for broadcasters looking to distribute video to multiple geographic locations, TVU Grid integrates easily into a broadcaster’s workflow, providing efficient automation, scheduling and management tools.
Through a partnership with the world’s leading drone manufacturer DJI, TVU offers the TVU Aerial Newsgathering Pack, which combines one of the most respected and innovative drones, DJI’s Inspire 1 drone, with a TVU One ultra-compact IP video transmitter in one package. The Aerial Newsgathering Pack can transmit live, full HD video with less than one second latency while the Inspire 1 drone is flying. The video can be received at any broadcast facility or CDN and then shared with a TV or web audience.
