TVU Networks Corporation Key Developments

TVU Networks Announces Availability of TVU Remote Production System

TVU Networks announced the availability of TVU Remote Production System, a new, cost-effective alternative solution for live, remote, multi-camera news and sports coverage. Traditionally, major broadcast and sporting events are produced using on-site production trucks and a large number of production crews at the location. However, a mobile production truck with full crew and dedicated transmission equipment can be an expensive and complex proposition. That changes with the official launch of TVU RPS. TVU RPS allows for the production of a live, 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 four synchronized SDI sources and transmits high-quality and low-latency IP video from the remote location to a studio-based receiver. The receiver, in turn, outputs four synchronized SDI outputs. By utilizing existing in-house production staff and equipment at the studio, a broadcaster no longer needs its own production crew in the field, saving significant cost in producing a remote, multi-camera live shot. In addition, TVU RPS provides a low-latency, return video feed from the studio to the field as well as IFB. Control and metadata data can be sent to and from the remote site, including teleprompter, tally light, GPS and location specific metadata.

TVU Networks Announces TVU VR

TVU Networks announced that TVU VR, the first IP- and cellular-based live virtual reality transmission solution. Although significant research and development has gone into the development of virtual reality capture and display, the lack of a mobile transmitting device supporting virtual reality has impeded its adoption for use in sports, major events and news. TVU VR removes this barrier to larger scale adoption. By incorporating TVU's Inverse StatMux Plus (IS+) technology, TVU VR can stream live VR content from anywhere, even in a moving environment like a car or train. TVU VR delivers an ultra-high definition, full frame rate and live 360-degree fully immersive video to any VR headset. The TVU VR transmission solution is platform agnostic. It can deliver video to all major VR platforms including Google Cardboard, Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, HTC Vive and others. With the ability to transmit live video, TVU VR delivers a true and convincing feeling of being teleported to the actual location, allowing broadcasters to put their viewers in the middle of the event, such as concerts, sports or news. TVU VR has the power to transport the viewer to anywhere in the world - in real-time, virtually. A pioneer in IP video technology, TVU Networks leads the way guiding thousands of companies worldwide to transition to a predominantly IP-based infrastructure. TVU's new VR solution is further proof of the technology's ability to transmit live from any video source and distribute that video to any external viewing device over IP. TVU will showcase all of its solutions, designed to help organizations fully leverage the extraordinary power of IP for video broadcast, in Booth SU4405 during NAB, to be held from April 16-21 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

TVU Networks Partners with DJI to Deliver First Aerial Newsgathering Pack for Live Drone Video Transmission

TVU Networks and DJI announced the release of the first Aerial Newsgathering Pack, giving news organizations and professional video production crews the ability to transmit live full HD video to any broadcast facility or CDN. The solution combines DJI's Inspire 1 drone with TVU's recently introduced TVU One IP video transmitter to deliver a fully-integrated live transmission solution capable of delivering live video from practically any location. Both the TVU One transmitter and Inspire 1 drone fit in a portable pack for fast deployment. The solution is capable of transmitting in full HD with sub-second latency with more than 20 minutes of fly time for the drone and will be on display at NAB 2015 in TVU booth SU3605 and DJI booth C1707. TVU and DJI have also announced a strategic partnership that includes full integration of the entire TVUPack family of IP transmission solutions with each DJI drone solution -- including the Phantom series. As drone technology becomes more accessible to broadcast organizations, this joint partnership will enable broadcasters to quickly deploy drone technology into their existing production workflows, and use TVUPack's proven live transmission technologies to deliver professional-quality HD video. With TVUPack, HD video footage can be transmitted from the drone directly to a production facility for live on-air television broadcast or a CDN for live Web broadcasting using any combination of cellular, WiFi, Ethernet, microwave, satellite or MIMO MESH connections. This joint solution has already been used in the field, as TVU provided live mobile transmission capabilities to DJI during the launch event for the Phantom 3 drone series. During the event, Phantom 3 drones transmitted live aerial video from Santorini, Singapore and Hollywood to simultaneous live events being held in Munich, London and New York City using TVUPack transmitters and TVU Grid live IP video distribution solution.
