How does Live Video Distribution Over IP Work?
For broadcasters who need to share live video with a number of locations and stations, seamless global video distribution can be a challenge, given the cost and scale of the task. TVU Solutions present a highly cost-effective way to transmit broadcast-quality video from one location to another with virtually no delay, by enabling broadcasters to acquire live video from different sources and seamlessly distribute it to other locations.

ⓘ What are the differences with satellite for network video distribution?
For broadcasters, video producers, and organizations looking to easily and affordably distribute high-quality, point-to-point or point-to-multipoint live video, satellite or dedicated fiber lines are ultimately much more expensive than implementing an IP-based distribution solution. IP-based solutions such as TVU Grid, eliminate the drawback of satellite rain fade, while allowing you to distribute live video feeds to an unlimited number of destination without the financial and hardware restrictions of satellite infrastructure, simply by using the public internet. In addition to lowering your costs, IP-based live video distribution can easily be set-up to uni-directional or bi-directional, allowing you to both send and receive live content from a location, with very low latency and very high definition.

New ways to search, find and exchange live video content globally
While TVU Grid allows you to distribute and exchange your recorded or live video content over IP with thousands of media organisations instantly, it also allows you to find live content in real-time, faster than you could ever hope for. Using TVU AI engine, all live feeds going through TVU solutions are enriched with metadata including voice, face and localisation recognition. This allows you to search and pin point the precise seconds of content you would need to produce your program, instead of browsing through minutes or hours of video files.
In short, you can automatically sort through hours of live feeds that are being distributed from different media organisations, to locate exactly the video content you need.
Get access remotely to live feeds from other media organizations during social distancing
Using TVU Grid, gain access to local news pool feeds in which hundreds of broadcasters and news agencies share timely video feed and information live. The Grid feeds can then be distributed live to TV, web and social media.
