NAB 2023: TVU Networks Receives Four Industry Honors
TVU Networks collected four technology awards last month: the “Product of the Year” Award from the NAB organization, “Technology Grand Prize” and “Remote Production Award” from the publishers of PRODU.com, and a “Best of Show” NAB award from TV Technology magazine.
Both the NAB organization “Product of the Year” and TV Technology’s “Best of Show” were honors bestowed on TVU RPS One – a new, all-in-one hybrid cloud and studio remote production solution. It combines synchronized, multi-camera encoding and transmission functionality in an ultra-compact and rugged form factor with six integrated 5G modems for wireless transmission.
TVU Networks won two awards from the Latin American media outlet, PRODU – the PRODU Technology Grand Prize and the Best Remote Production Deployment Award. Both awards were acknowledgement of TVU Networks’ collaboration with live A/V transport specialist Vívaro Video de Chile for the ESPN network. This was the first year a Technology Grand Prize was granted. The winner was selected from the entire pool of nominees as the company contributing the greatest technological advancement to content production in Latin America.
“It’s a true honor to win these awards from the NAB organization, TV Technology and PRODU,” says Paul Shen, CEO of TVU Networks. “The reception that TVU RPS One received during demonstrations at the NAB show was overwhelmingly positive. The awards are an affirmation of the direction we’ve taken in the development of cloud-native and hybrid technology for remote production. We greatly appreciate the honors from the NAB, TV Technology, and PRODU.
“Through our DevOps process, we collaborate closely with the customer’s production and operation team. It enabled the immediate implementation of customer feedback into the product design we showed at NAB 2023. This approach has helped us deliver cutting-edge technology and on-demand services to content creators faster and more efficiently. We don’t bring out new designs on a scheduled basis. We’re continually creating solutions that address our customers’ most immediate challenges.”
In 2022, TVU Networks introduced over 130 releases and several new hardware products and cloud services across its cloud and IP-based solutions.
The NAB Show Product of the Year Awards recognize some of the most significant and promising new products and technologies exhibited at the 2023 NAB Show. Winners were selected by a panel of industry experts in 15 categories. TV Technology’s “Best of Show” Awards are judged by a panel of industry experts on the criteria of innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry. With eight categories, the PRODU Technology Awards recognize the top firms in the industry for their contribution to audiovisual production in Latin America.
