TVU Networks Advances In AI, 4K60fps And HDR Transmission

New internet-based encoder TVU G-Link 4K and 4K HDR Version of TVU One Mobile Transmitter make its IBC debut.

“We are excited to introduce at IBC our latest solutions and product updates designed to help our customers cover live events faster, easier and more reliably regardless of location,” said David Jorba, EVP, Managing Director Europe, TVU Networks. “Our media supply chain from acquisition through distribution guarantees our customers have the highest resolution at the fastest speeds with easily implemented search and viewer engagement tools.”

Featuring a new H.265 hardware encoding chip, TVU One 4K delivers 4K, 10-bit true 60 fps HDR video at as low as 3mbps with Inverse StatMux Plus technology, IS+.

The unit is able to transmit 4K P60 HDR video reliably over mobile infrastructure at 0.5 second latency. As an example, TVU One 4K will be important for upcoming high-profile sporting events like the 2020 European football championships, the Summer and Winter Games as well as this year’s Rugby World Cup.

TVU will also display its newest IP based rack-mount point-to-point contribution encoder, the TVU G-Link 4K. It’s an HEVC contribution encoder able to transmit a 4K P60 4:2:2 HDR video signal over a normal Internet connection at as high as 50mbps.

TVU MediaMind is said to help make video content visible throughout the supply chain process, allowing all media to become enabled. CNN Newsource has used TVU Grid to distribute live HD feeds to affiliate stations globally and is also taking advantage of a part of the MediaMind workflow with the use of metadata descriptions tagged to each of the feeds. As a result, Newsource affiliates will be able to use TVU’s AI based speech and facial recognition to search and find practically any live or archived media content.

TVU’s remote production system (RPS) enables synchronized multi-camera remote production using a broadcaster’s existing studio control room and a public Internet connection from the field. Camera feeds are transmitted from a remote location back to the studio over IP, reducing the need for extensive on-site production trucks or large crews.

Transmissions can be sent straight to the cloud. Events can be produced using TVU Producer, a solution with a web interface that allows producers to make quick cuts, insert graphic overlays from Singular.live’s library, switch between multiple sources, manage audio, compile highlights and more including pushing content to TV and the Internet - all over IP.
