​TVU Networks Debuts IP Newsgathering Transmitter

The latest TVU One model is claimed to eliminate modem swapping for broadcasters that frequently travel the world to cover news.

The TVU One TM1000G features a ‘global embedded modem’ for easy operation practically anywhere in the world.

“When we first introduced TVU One, it was our first portable live video cellular broadcast product to use embedded internal modems instead of exclusively external USB modems,” explained Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks. “In the past, depending on where in the world the TVU One was going to be used to transmit video or data, a specific set of modems had to be installed to ensure compatibility with that region's SIMs.

This of course meant that modems had to be physically swapped out if a broadcaster was planning to use their TVU Ones in a country that required a different modem configuration. With the introduction of our new TVU One TM1000G model, we are once again raising the bar by offering increased flexibility and ease of use. The global modems available in the TM1000G ensures hassle-free operation by allowing broadcasters to simply insert local SIMs wherever they are into the transmitter, and with that, they’re ready to go live.”

The new version weighs 2.2 pounds and includes functions designed to fit the needs of any size live video broadcaster. The transmitter is available with HEVC video compression and TVU’s patented Inverse Statmux Plus (IS+) algorithm to transmit full HD quality video with half-second latency at 3Mbps. TVU One is available with embedded modems and can transmit simultaneously over multiple connections, including cellular, microwave, satellite, BGAN, WiFi and Ethernet.
