Ruptly Partner With TVU To Boost Live Output

German video news agency Ruptly has a new partnership with TVU Networks to allow media partners to receive Ruptly’s live transmissions over the internet at broadcast quality using the TVU Grid platform.

TVU says, this will enhance the propositions of both Ruptly and TVU by enabling them to serve new and prospective clients of all sizes.

Ruptly will be able to switch, route and distribute live content to any number of locations with high quality and low latency. In addition, users of the platform will be able to choose their level of commitment, purchasing live content on a one-off or more regular basis. This marks a move from Ruptly and TVU towards a more scalable operation, that will reach wider audiences.

Ahmet Cakan, CTO at Ruptly stated, “We have always pushed to democratize video content, so we’re thrilled to be breaking down another barrier by improving access to live broadcast, using TVU’s unparalleled technology. Given the current global situation, there has never been a greater need for fast, broadcast-quality news footage from the centre of events – especially now many reporters and crews are unable to travel. This partnership will help us to ensure that in future, people in even the most remote areas will still be able to share their stories with the world.”

The service will be fully operational and available to clients across broadcast and digital news platforms in the coming weeks.
