MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – September 10, 2015 – TVU Networks®, the global technology leader in live IP video solutions, announces today that at IBC 2015 it will be presenting its groundbreaking new IP video marketplace TVUMe for the first time in Europe.

TVUMe enables broadcasters to find and purchase live or recorded video content online from other broadcasters, freelancers and independent production crews from around the world.

The revolutionary concept behind TVUMe means that users can sell or trade recorded video content and sell live video streams via a simple interface allowing broadcasters and content owners to leverage their assets quickly and efficiently.

TVUMe has also been designed to allow production crews to list production services and equipment for future booking, giving broadcasters access to professional video crews around the globe at the desk-top.

With TVUMe’s interactive map feature, broadcasters can search for content being produced in a particular location and then acquire the live video content from camera crews already shooting on site, allowing breaking news events to get to air faster.

At IBC 2015, TVU will demonstrate several new features of the video online marketplace for the first time. This includes the ability for a user to click one button to choose to share their video content with just one party as an Exclusive or multiple interested parties using the Multi-distribute option. In addition, users are now able to instantly share live video content with others through social media by simply sharing a unique URL. Viewers will be able to see the shared video without needing to log into TVUMe.

TVUMe contributors can download the free TVU Anywhere app on iOS, Android and Windows, to instantly stream live video to the TVUMe marketplace. TVU Anywhere turns a smart mobile device into a video transmitter and has the ability to aggregate all available bandwidth from cellular and WiFi connections, ensuring resilient transmission for a superior picture. TVUMe is fully integrated with TVU Anywhere, allowing news-gathering teams to communicate directly with the user in real time.

Paul Shen, CEO VP of TVU Networks said, “TVUMe expands the ability for broadcasters to deliver more live news coverage to viewers from more places and faster. TVUMe’s ability to facilitate real-time transactions between broadcasters and video content providers from a single web interface can capture and deliver breaking news with a click of a button. The new features we have added to TVUMe provides more management and control over content distribution, increasing the speed by which news can be shared.”

TVU Networks Expands Korea’s Leading Network’s Coverage of Historic Inter-Continental Railway Project with Global Rental Program

Global Rental Program Provides TVUPacks to South Korea’s Leading 24-Hour News Network for Eurasia Friendship Express Railway Project

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – September 8, 2015 – TVU Networks, the global technology leader in live IP video solutions, today announced that TVUPack IP video transmission solutions were used by South Korea’s leading broadcast network, YTN, to capture and deliver live video content from the recently completed Eurasia Friendship Railway Project.

During the 14,400km journey through multiple countries, YTN used TVU Networks’ Global Rental Program to acquire TVU Networks’ mobile uplink backpack solution to broadcast in real-time to viewers in South Korea. Through TVU’s Rental Program, YTN’s team was able to report live from Vladivostok, Moscow, Warsaw and Berlin.

TVU Networks played a critical role in broadcasting this highly symbolic, inter-continental express train project. TVU deployed additional TVUPacks to longtime partner, YTN, through TVU Network’s flexible and convenient Global Rental Program. Through this program, YTN was able to ensure the highest level of transmission from various key stops throughout the journey, regardless of the changing bandwidth constraints and while providing the most optimal picture quality.

“TVU Global Rental Program was fundamentally important to YTN’s coverage of the Eurasia express train journey. To capture footage from each of the key stops along the lengthy journey, we required additional TVUPacks,” said Hyungil Park, YTN Technical Planning Team Manager. “We have been using TVUPacks to transmit news from all over South Korea since 2011, and we knew would could rely on TVU for this purpose, as well. TVUPacks are made for this sort of mobile broadcasting and this was such a large and important event, we could not risk using a product we weren’t confident with,” Park said. “The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Korea Railroad Corporation (Korail) co-sponsored this ambitious railway project meant to promote peace and unity throughout Eurasia, and we had a firm understanding of how important this was to the people of South Korea and how essential our role was in bringing them closer to the news,” Park explained.

“TVU was truly a loyal partner to us as we embarked on this project. We relied on TVU Networks in four crucial cities throughout the 20-day expedition. This was of vital importance, as the viewers and people of South Korea relied on YTN to provide the most accurate, real-time news of this unprecedented journey. This was undoubtedly the most cost-effective and seamless way to provide this sort of coverage. TVU provided the necessary packs and equipment to ensure we would have the best connection, strongest signal and highest picture quality to report back to our loyal viewers in South Korea,” said Park.

Through its simple one-button operation and ability to simultaneously transmit over multiple combinations of cellular, WiFi, microwave and satellite links, TVUPack enables broadcasters to deliver live HD video from practically any location. TVUPack also offers broadcasters TVU’s proprietary Inverse StatMux Plus (IS+) transmission protocol to ensure enhanced resilience and superior picture quality in fluctuating bandwidth conditions, as well as the ability to transmit HD video with sub-second latency.

TVU Networks will be presenting its full suite of live, IP video solutions at IBC, September 11-15, 2015 in Amsterdam. TVU Networks team will be on-site in hall 2, stand B28, doing live demonstrations of TVU Networks’ solutions and products, including the most recent, highly anticipated innovation, TVU One.

Already in use by hundreds of leading broadcast organizations around the world, the TVUPack family of IP transmission solutions gives broadcasters a powerful and reliable tool to distribute live video content to broadcast, online and mobile platforms. The TVUPack suite of solutions has been used to deliver professional-quality live HD footage of a number of important events around the world including the 2010 World Cup, both Summer and Winter Olympic Games, U.S. presidential elections, natural disasters, the 2013 Papal conclave, the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the Super Bowl.
