TVU Networks, a California based provider of cloud based live video products, has launched Partyline to support remote collaboration and communication in production.
It enables production personnel and performers to collaborate remotely in real time with full HD video quality and accurate audio/video synchronization. The package is debuting as an integrated part of the firm’s cloud-based TVU Producer for broadcast quality production, and will also be incorporated within the TVU ecosystem for use with other products in the family.
“The global pandemic has shifted the dynamic of TV production collaboration, requiring talent and technical staff to produce programming from their living rooms,” said TVU Networks’ CEO Paul Shen. “Thus far, they’ve relied on readily available videoconferencing solutions that have significant limitations when it comes to professional studio production, particularly for true team collaboration. The challenge is how to bring the production crew, technical team, talent and tools together in a virtual studio environment, while producing a full HD/4K broadcast quality video remotely.” Shen referred to this as social production, aiming to emulate in-person communication and interaction as closely as possible.
The virtual environment within Partyline is based on a Real Time Interactive Layer (RTIL) with TVU’s Inverse StatMux Plus (IS+) technology. All participants are granted access to a Partyline through a shared URL, as in some popular consumer packages, which allows them to watch all program feeds live and interact, discuss, control and participate in the production together in real time.
