CCW 2015: TVU Networks Spotlights IP-based Video Solutions
TVU Networks will showcase its popular video-over-IP solutions at CCW. In its booth (#661) will be the TVU One mobile IP newsgathering transmitter and the company’s flagship TVUPack TM8200 mobile uplink backpack transmitter. Just introduced at NAB this April, TVU One is already in full production and shipping in large quantity.
TVU Networks provides a full portfolio of video-over-IP solutions designed to give broadcasters innovative, flexible and reliable tools to acquire live video content from anywhere and distribute it to anywhere.
TVU One features the same proprietary Inverse StatMux Plus (IS+) technology, designed to deliver a live HD-quality picture with sub-second latency, as other popular TVU solutions, such as the MLink fixed rack IP-based video transmitter and TVUPack mobile uplink backpack transmitter. Inverse StatMux Plus enables the transmission of dependable HD quality video with less than one second latency through multiple transmission mediums including cellular, satellite, microwave, MIMO Mesh, WiFi, Ethernet, and BGAN — even in the most bandwidth challenged environments including a moving vehicle.
“CCW is the premier broadcast show on the East Coast of the U.S.,” says Eric Chang, VP of Marketing, TVU Networks. “The New York City location is convenient for many of our customers, and it gives us an opportunity to meet with them, including those who were unable to attend NAB or IBC. And we’re able to showcase new products like TVU One, as well as our full line of IP video solutions. We look forward to exhibiting at CCW again this year showing how our latest innovations can enhance live video acquisition, transmission and distribution.”
TVU One is the company’s fifth-generation live mobile IP newsgathering transmitter. It delivers the same transmission resiliency, performance, picture quality and sub-second latency of a full-size backpack transmitter in a substantially smaller and lighter form factor. TVU One features TVU Networks’ patented Inverse Statmux Plus (IS+) transmission algorithm, Smart VBR technology, and the TVU.264 video codec. It’s available with embedded modems and can transmit simultaneously over multiple mediums, including cellular, microwave, MIMO microwave mesh, Ka-band and Ku-band satellite, BGAN, WiFi, and Ethernet.
The TVUPack TM8200 mobile uplink backpack transmitter combines TVU’s proprietary IS+ advanced Forward Error Correction algorithm with the TVU264 H.264 encoding engine, to enable users to maximize the bandwidth available in each network connection and transmit the most stable picture possible. It supports multiple 3G/4G LTE, microwave, satellite, WiFi and BGAN data connections. The TM8200 is also available in two alternative versions with integrated Vislink hybrid microwave and MIMO Mesh microwave.
Other products in the TVU line up include: the MLink cellular 3G/4G LTE, satellite and microwave live video uplink transmitter; TVU Anywhere – an application that turns laptops and smart devices into transmitters; TVU Grid, a scalable IP-based video switching, routing and distribution solution that enables broadcasters to acquire live video from different sources and distribute it to other news stations; and TVUMe, an online marketplace for broadcasters to find and purchase live or recorded video content online from other broadcasters, freelancers and independent production crews from around the world.
