TVU Networks Adds Workflow Automation and 5G-Ready Transmitters

​Updates to TVUMediaMind, a media supply chain platform, is intended to simplify content creation, production and distribution while incorporating support for automation, AI, streaming, 4K and 5G.

“With the many, different ways media content is consumed today by viewers, broadcasters can no longer acquire, produce and distribute media for just TV. In fact, the way programs are created must completely change,” said Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks. “By automating and optimizing the media supply chain process, broadcasters can realize the benefits of taking raw content and re-using it across many platforms, programs and even organizations. TVU MediaMind allows anyone to create stories, wherever and however they want efficiently, effectively and without limits.”

For example, within content acquisition, the company will showcase a new 4K version of its TVU One mobile transmitter, billed as the first cellular mobile unit with the ability to transmit Ultra-HD/4Kp60 HEVC content.

“UHD/4Kp60 is a much more technically challenging resolution to achieve in a cellular mobile unit,” explained Shen. “However, using our patented IS+ transmission algorithm and advanced FEC technology, we were able to overcome these challenges and transmit video in full UHD/4K at 60 frames per second.”

The TVU One 4K and and the company's family of other portable and rack-mount transmitters are also now 5G ready.

Other TVU solutions receiving enhancements and updates that will be demonstrated at NAB include: TVU One TM1000, HEVC cellular 4G/LTE mobile transmitter; TVU CAS (Contribution Automation Solution) with new automated workflow integration; TVU Command Center for cloud-based centralized management of TVU devices and services and TVU Remote Production System, a solution for live remote synchronized multi-camera production for news and sports
