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. 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.

Also to be shown is TVU Grid, an IP video distribution, routing and switching system that gives broadcasters the ability to seamlessly switch live IP video content and share live streams between remote locations. The solution provides the ability to route 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 it’s happening.

TVU Networks will also show the TVU MLink TE4500 H.265/HEVC and 4K encoding solution – a rack-mount encoder for satellite and microwave vehicles that transmits video using HEVC video compression and Inverse StatMux Plus advanced IP video technology. The MLink TE4500 delivers the same high quality picture that’s currently available with TVU’s award-winning cellular IP-based mobile live video transmitters. TVU MLink also delivers more efficient compression, requiring less data transmission.

TVU RPS will also be on hand at CABSAT. The solution enables the production of a live, synchronized 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 six synchronized SDI sources and transmits high-quality and low-latency IP video from the remote location to a studio-based receiver, and the receiver outputs six synchronized SDI outputs. TVU RPS users see significant cost savings with the ability to utilize existing in-house production staff and equipment at the studio, eliminating the need for large production crews in the field.

TVU Networks will also showcase its TVU Vista solution for PTZ cameras.  TVU Vista allows for the management and control of PTZ IP-based 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 – combining cellular, WiFi, Ethernet and other IP connections.

Serbian Media Company Adds Mobile IP Transmitters to Keep Pace with Viewers Growing Consumption of Live News Online and On-Air

Two New TVU One Units with HEVC Bring Number of TVU Transmitters to Six at Belgrade’s B92 Television

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – January 3, 2017 – Based on the success of its daily live news feed operations, Serbian media company TV Prva/B92/02 (B92), with headquarters in Belgrade, has added two TVU One mobile IP transmitters with HEVC compression to its TVU Networks newsgathering equipment arsenal, bringing the total number of TVU transmitters at B92 Television to six.

Founded in 1989 as a youth radio station, B92 now includes a national radio, television network and a highly trafficked news and entertainment programming website. B92 Television is one of the fastest growing TV outlets in the country, currently ranked third most popular station among its target audience (18 to 49-year-old viewers). The B92.net site averages roughly three million views per day. The organization has won several, prestigious international awards for journalism and human rights advocacy.

“With the growing popularity of our news coverage both online and on-air, we knew we had to upgrade our ability to deliver even more, remote live news for on-air broadcast and streamed to the website,” said Mr. Vladimir Indjic, CTO, TV B92. “We’ve always been impressed with the stability and IS+ technology in our TVU units, along with the company’s 24/7 customer support. Now, with HEVC compression, we’ll be able to produce even higher picture quality at a lower bit rate, which means more live shots and file transfers from the field. TVU continually updates the features in their solutions to give us more of what we need to set ourselves apart as providers of the best live video news coverage in our region.”

The two new TVU One mobile transmitters with HEVC will be used in conjunction with the networks’ four TVUPack’s purchased in 2012. B92 Television will use all six TVU transmitters for live feeds every day.

Belgrade-based broadcast systems integration firm Amisys consulted with B92 executives on the selection of the TVU One units and were instrumental in the decision-making process, training staff, and ensuring a smooth transition so the network could be up and running quickly.

The TVU One with HEVC cellular mobile solution uses both HEVC video compression and TVU’s patented Inverse Statmux Plus (IS+) transmission algorithm – which transmits HD-quality video with half-second latency at 3Mbps. It’s available with embedded modems and can transmit simultaneously over multiple mediums, including cellular, microwave, satellite, BGAN, WiFi and Ethernet.
“B92 Television has a very young and urban viewership, so it’s essential that they stay current and provide the latest news and programming exactly as it’s happening with absolute reliability and top-notch quality,” said Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks. “There’s zero room for error. Thankfully, HEVC compression is much more efficient, particularly when combined with our IS+ technology. By taking advantage of both, the TVU One with HEVC sets a new standard for latency of just a half second at 3Mbps – even in situations where transmission is being done from inside a moving vehicle. It uses less data, with less overhead and performs with even greater stability than ever before.”
Weighing just 2.2 pounds, TVU One with HEVC offers a robust set of functions designed to fit the needs of any size live video broadcaster. It delivers industry-leading video transmission resiliency and high-definition picture quality within an ultra-compact and rugged hardware chassis. With TVU One with HEVC, broadcasters can fully leverage the versatility of a small, lightweight, IP-based high-definition video field transmitter without sacrificing performance, features or picture quality.

NAB Show New York: TVU Networks’ New TVU Transcriber Solution and TimeLock Technology to Make U.S. Debut

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – October 17, 2017 – At the upcoming NAB Show New York, TVU Networks will showcase its latest IP video solutions and innovations, including the brand new TVU Transcriber service and TVU TimeLock technology, along with the TVU One with HEVC mobile IP transmitter and TVU RPS (Remote Production System). Taking place October 18-19 at the Javits Convention Center, TVU Networks will exhibit in booth N836.

“We enjoy exhibiting at NAB New York because it’s a chance to connect with many local attendees that haven’t made it to other recent shows, such as IBC,” said Eric Chang, VP of Marketing, TVU Networks. “TVU Networks is committed to innovation in live IP video, and we look forward to unveiling our latest technologies at the show.”

As part of the company’s commitment to expanding its At-home/REMI (remote-integration model) remote production solution offerings, TVU is unveiling its new TimeLock technology – which enables multiple TVU Transmitters to synchronize together at a set latency, allowing mobile and wireless At-home/REMI productions without being tethered. Multiple camera crews can roam throughout a production area covering live events and transmit to standard TVU Transceivers, which output synchronized SDI or IP outputs. TVU TimeLock enables entire remote events to be produced from a control room in a separate location.

TVU TimeLock joins TVU RPS in the company’s remote production solution offerings. TVU RPS provides an alternative for live remote synchronized multi-camera coverage for news and sports. Instead of having to rely on expensive on-location production trucks and large production crews, TVU RPS allows broadcasters to leverage their existing studio control room infrastructure to deliver frame accurate, genlocked and synchronized multi-camera remote production. TVU RPS features an easy-to-use web interface for monitoring and controlling all aspects of the transmission, including real-time previews of all channels, current bit-rate and latency.

Also to be introduced for the first time in the U.S. is TVU Transcriber, an AI-based audio to text transcribing service. Using voice recognition technology, the service provides the option to output text to a file format from an audio input source for auditing purposes or embed text into a video stream for closed or open captioning. TVU Transcriber can be purchased standalone or added as an option to TVU Transceivers.

TVU Networks will also showcase its TVU One live mobile IP newsgathering transmitter with integrated HEVC compression standard. Featuring the company’s patented Inverse Statmux Plus (IS+) transmission algorithm, TVU One can deliver HD quality video with half-second latency at 3Mbps – even in a fast-moving vehicle. It’s available with embedded modems and can transmit simultaneously over multiple mediums, including cellular, microwave, satellite, BGAN, WiFi and Ethernet. Currently available for purchase, TVU One with HEVC is a finalist in this year’s Streaming Media Readers’ Choice Awards in the cellular bonding solution category.
