TVU Networks Delivers Enhanced TVU Grid Solution

TVU Networks announced the release of the next generation of its TVU Grid IP video switching, routing and distribution solution. The latest version of TVU Grid delivers greater flexibility, enhanced scalability and built-in scheduling and automation tools. These enhancements to TVU Grid will be on display at the TVU Networks booth (2.B28) at IBC, September 12 to 16, 2014 in Amsterdam. TVU Grid is a powerful IP video solution that enables TV stations to manage, route, switch and distribute live video content through both public and private Internet connections. Because the solution is video-source agnostic, TVU Grid can seamlessly switch between any connected IP or SDI sources. The latest enhancements to TVU Grid include a newly designed browser-based central management tool that delivers enhanced management and control over a greater number of video streams. The company has also introduced a fully-integrated scheduling tool that enables fully automated switching between live streams. Additionally, with TVU Grid's open API, broadcasters can fully integrate the solution with other business-critical tools within their broadcast workflow including video playout, production automation and third party scheduling solutions.

TVU Networks and Vislink to Launch Fully-Integrated Microwave and Cellular IP Mobile Transmission Solution

TVU Networks and Vislink announced the launch of a next-generation TVUPack with Vislink's integrated hybrid microwave IP technology. The jointly developed TVUPack is the world's first portable IP newsgathering solution capable of simultaneously aggregating microwave bandwidth with multiple cellular data connections to deliver unprecedented quality and reliability. The TVUPack is the first fully-integrated product to emerge from the partnership between TVU Networks and Vislink announced in April, and will be on display at IBC 2014 in the TVU Networks booth (2.B28) and on the Vislink stand (1.A69). As a result of growing demand for highly resilient and portable equipment capable of meeting new standards for mobile cellular transmission, TVU and Vislink have developed a unique joint offering that integrates the TVUPack TM8200 with Vislink's hybrid microwave IP technology. Utilizing TVU's powerful Inverse StatMux IP transmission protocols, the TVUPack is able to combine multiple cellular data connections with Vislink's hybrid microwave IP technology to give broadcasters unrivalled flexibility, letting them transmit HD video simultaneously over cellular and microwave connections with sub-second latency. As a fully integrated IP newsgathering solution, the TVUPack combines best-of-breed cellular and IP microwave transmission technologies into a single mobile lightweight backpack. The joint solution delivers a number of features including: Field crews can broadcast over cellular and microwave networks simultaneously, utilizing all available bandwidth to ensure a more robust and stable transmission. The system supports up to six 3G/4G/LTE connections as well as 2 or 7 GHz microwave, users can add or remove microwave or cellular connections seamlessly without interrupting the transmission, simple one button operation eliminates the need for in-field configuration, the solution is the first to offer Vislink microwave transmission functionality in a backpack, sending video signals up to 4x farther than COFDM/DVB-T.

TVU Networks Delivers Software Update for TVUPack Mobile IP Video Solutions

TVU Networks announced the release of a major software update, version 4.1, for its TVUPack mobile IP video transmitters. This update introduces a number of performance enhancements that further optimizes the stability and performance for all TVUPack transmissions, increased flexibility for monitoring and controlling transmissions, and deeper social media integration for TVUPack users. These upgrades, along with additional new innovations that are yet to be announced, will be demonstrated at IBC 2014. The software update is available immediately. All existing TVUPack customers with current support plans will receive these enhancements free of charge. Customers interested in upgrading their existing TVUPack equipment can contact the TVU customer support team to schedule an upgrade. The version 4.1 update along with other recent TVUPack software updates provide the following: Smart VBR Technology - TVUPack's Smart VBR functionality enables TVUPack to adapt quickly and efficiently to extreme fluctuations in bandwidth during live transmissions. Now, 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. Capable of handling bandwidth fluctuations from 100kbps to over 10Mbps in real time, Smart VBR ensures that the transmission delivers the best picture quality in a changing bandwidth environment, such as that encountered on most cellular networks. This function makes live-shots from a moving vehicle or other similar rapidly changing environments possible, and takes the guesswork out of managing transmission bandwidth. Enhanced Performance at Low Latency Settings - TVUPack has dramatically improved its performance at low-latency settings, and can deliver HD-quality picture at as little as one second latency in mobile environments. With sub-second latency, broadcasters can transmit exceptional picture in even more scenarios, enabling more effective live talkbacks and delivering breaking news in the instant that it happens. Enhanced Stability - TVU has introduced performance improvements for transmissions in low bit-rate environments, delivering superior error correction that results in a more stable transmission and improved picture quality for every transmission. As a result, broadcasters are able to deliver live video from extremely congested locations or in environments with little available bandwidth. Web-based Receiver Interface - TVU has introduced Web-based receiver functionality, enabling users to monitor and control the TVUPack Receiver interface from any Web-enabled browser. This feature gives broadcasters greater flexibility to manage TVUPack transmissions from any location, no longer requiring production crews to be tethered to the production facility in order to monitor and control each transmission. The Web based receiver interface also enables users to control multiple transmissions from one single computer. Deeper Social Media Integration - The latest software update includes enhancements to the recently-introduced TVU Social platform. TVU Social enables TVUPack to plug into and be fully integrated with any social media network globally such as Facebook, Twitter and Weibo. With a press of a button, TVU Social helps a reporter or camera operator report breaking news for digital viewers and allows them to connect more often and readily. The field camera operator or reporter no longer has to choose between streaming a live shot or posting to social media as they can now do them at the same time.
