TVU Networks Offers Live Video Feeds From Summer Olympics

TVU Networks, a provider of cloud and IP based live video technology, is now offering rights-cleared access to live external video feeds of locations across Tokyo until conclusion of the Summer Games.

The 24/7 beauty shots are part of TVU’s on-site support effort during the event.

There are camera feeds available from Tokyo, with stock from local Japanese partners, showing various locales around the city, including the Japan National Stadium and Athlete Village. The live feeds will also be available through the Paralympic Games, which follow the Summer Games.

News outlets can use the fixed shots for bumpers, live introductions, and other interstitial content for broadcast, web content, and social media posts. The feeds are available through TVU MediaSource, a cloud-based market for real-time access to video content from trusted media organizations.

Beyond live camera feeds, TVU will offer TVU One mobile transmitters for rent in Tokyo during the Games, as well as its TVU Remote Production System (RPS) for multi-camera REMI production.

Broadcasters can access the TVU Anywhere app, which allows full HD live transmission of video from iOS or Android smartphones. Other cloud-based rental options include TVU Producer for live multi-camera video production in the cloud with low latency, as well as TVU Grid for scalable point-to-multipoint live video distribution.

TVU also has studio space in downtown Tokyo available to rent. Studios are equipped with TVU Grid for broadcast-quality video transmission. With every studio rental, live video capture will be automatically recorded and indexed via TVU MediaMind’s AI-based technology. Video can be searched in real time, and clips can be downloaded for free for 30 days.
