NAB 2018: TVU Networks To Showcase HEVC Advancements, Range of New, Updated IP Video Solutions
TVU Networks will showcase a variety of new and updated IP based products and technologies at the upcoming NAB Show. The company will continue its technological advancements to HEVC, and will show its entire HEVC solution set integrated with the company’s proprietary video transmission technology, Inverse StatMux Plus (IS+).
“At this year’s NAB Show, we’ll introduce new solutions and product updates that have been developed after working closely with our customers and identifying how we can further simplify and improve their production workflows,” says Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks.
“With the transition from digital to IP firmly underway with broadcasters, we continue to round out our IP offerings even as we look to the next workflow disruptive technology. We look forward to demonstrating our complete line of efficient and cost-effective live video products in the Central Hall at NAB Show.”
TVU Networks is expanding its remote production offerings with TVU Timelock – which enables entire remote events to be produced from a control room in a separate location. With the solution, multiple TVU Transmitters can synchronize together at a set latency, allowing mobile and wireless At-home/REMI productions without being tethered.
TVU Timelock enables broadcasters to do more live video production at a fraction of the cost of traditional on-location multi-camera production, which typically requires much more equipment and personnel. Joining TVU RPS in the company’s remote production offerings, TVU Timelock was first introduced at the 2017 NAB Show New York, and will be making its NAB Las Vegas show debut.
Another company solution that will be making its NAB debut is TVU Transcriber – an AI-based audio to text transcribing service that uses voice recognition technology. TVU Transcriber provides the option to output text to a file format from an audio input source for auditing purposes or embed text into a video stream for closed or open captioning. The new service can be purchased standalone or added as an option to TVU Transceivers.
TVU Networks will also introduce improvements to its existing line of IP video workflow solutions, with enhancements for its video acquisition, transmission, production, distribution and management technologies. New feature and function updates for the company’s TVU One.mobile IP newsgathering transmitter, TVU Anywhere app, TVU Router virtual internet cable, TVU Grid video switching, routing, and distribution system, TVU Producer cloud-based production tool, TVU Command Center centralized remote management solution and TVU Voice will be announced at a later date. Additionally, new workflow-based solutions will be unveiled for the first time at NAB.
