Malaysian talk show Talking Grace has migrated to cloud production with the help of TVU Networks, a California based provider of cloud and IP-based live video technology.
The show is using TVU products to conduct interviews while COVID-19 travel restrictions continue to disrupt in-person shoots.
TVU has allowed the company to expand its potential interview reach across Malaysia without travel, according to Sazrul Yacub, technical director of AB Roll sdn bhd, the Malaysian film and television production company producing the show, based in Kajang. “With TVU, we can do the show even if we are located in different locations,” Yacub explained. “Remote production is much easier.”
Video of the hosts and guests is captured using TVU Anywhere on mobile devices. Participants communicate with each other at low latency and without sync issues through TVU Partyline, with the live feeds pushed to TVU Producer for production and distribution to social media platforms. AB Roll also uses TVU Producer to add graphics and effects throughout the show, including lower-thirds and the display of multiple video windows.
AB Roll chose TVU because of the flexibility of the ecosystem and strong support from the company, according to Yacub, and as a result is considering extending the workflow to remote production events and other programming. “With TVU, we were able to pull off the talk show despite the location challenges,” said Yacub. “TVU enabled us to produce a show despite the restriction to travel. We can still have live interviews using TVU Anywhere.”
TVU Partyline’s virtual work environment enables crews, talent, and outside content contributors to interact in real time with HD video and synchronized audio. TVU Anywhere allows any smart device to transmit full-HD video for live streaming. With TVU’s proprietary Inverse StatMux Plus (IS+) technology, the app aggregates cellular with WiFi connections to provide reliable, low-latency video transmission.
