TVU Networks has successfully completed two separate public tender bids in China resulting in the company providing its TVU One 3G/4G LTE mobile uplink solution to Hunan Television of the Hunan Broadcasting System and Fujian Television of Fujian Radio Film and TV Group. Hunan Television is the leading provincial TV station in China.
“We are honored to have been selected by two of the most watched TV stations in the People’s Republic of China as their provider of live video transmission equipment for news coverage,” says Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks. “TVU One and TVU One with HEVC incorporate six generations of technology innovation with an unparalleled rich feature set designed specifically to meet the needs of today’s on-the-go professional broadcaster. In selecting TVU One, Hunan TV and Fujian TV camera crews will be able to take advantage of its easy operation while delivering a live broadcast quality picture at half-second latency to their viewers regardless of the transmission environment.”
The newest generation of TVU One features HEVC/H.265 video compression algorithm and TVU’s Inverse StatMux Plus (IS+) technology in a compact and lightweight design.
