View, manage and share all video content from one box
TVU Servers are powerful professional hardware decoders designed for the centralized viewing, controlling and distributing of live video content. TVU Servers can accept multiple video streams from any IP-based video source as well as any TVU Networks video transmitter. Designed to easily integrate with live video workflows, each model of the TVU Server has different features and functions, with the option to upgrade depending on your specific broadcasting needs.
Robust features – Each TVU Server provides an extensive number of hardware and software features and functions that allow for the effective monitoring and control of any and all live video transmissions within a single box. The web-based user interface displays key status indicators such as the data throughput strength of each transmission connection, the line quality and transmission bit-rate of an operating TVU transmitter. Operator-controllable features include , GPS tracking of TVU transmitters, retrieval of recorded video from TVU transmitters, preset transmission modes, full video editing, adding external IP video sources and many others.
Unique Smart VBR technology – If you’re unsure about the appropriate preset mode or prefer to have your TVU Server set at the optimal bit-rate, TVU’s Smart VBR functionality takes out the guesswork. When selected, Smart VBR enables TVU to adapt quickly and efficiently to extreme fluctuations in bandwidth during live transmissions. The operator only has to set the desired latency for the live shot, and Smart VBR will automatically adjust picture quality based on the available bandwidth.
Powers TVU Grid – The VS3100 and VS3500 Servers can power TVU Grid, TVU’s IP video switching, routing and distribution solution. With TVU Grid, you can take a live video transmission from one location and share it with any number of TVU Grid-enabled stations in the world.
IP streaming output – TVU Servers offer an optional feature that allows users to take a live TVU transmission and output it to a third-party website or CDN. The live video is encoded into an IP format and can be sent to up to six different remote locations.
Facebook Live – Add optional integration with Facebook Live for live video streaming to the popular social media platform.
Optimized hardware configurations – TVU Servers are available as 1RU rack-mount or in a half size. There are also units with dual outputs and/or dual power supplies.
