TVU Partners DJI for Aerial Newsgathering

Live IP transmission specialist TVU Networks has allied with DJI to offer an Aerial Newsgathering Pack, giving news organisations and professional video production crews the ability to transmit live full HD video to any broadcast facility or central delivery network (CDN).

The TVU Aerial Newsgathering Pack combines DJI's aerial camera system Inspire 1 with a TVU One compact IP video transmitter in a single package. Designed for ultra-fast deployment, the pack is capable of transmitting live full HD video with sub-second latency while the Inspire 1 is in the air, giving more than 20 minutes of flight time. Live video captured by the pack can be received at any broadcast facility or CDN and then shared with a TV or web audience. 

The solution combines DJI’s Inspire 1 with TVU’s recently introduced TVU One IP video transmitter to deliver a fully-integrated live transmission solution capable of delivering live video from practically any location. Both the TVU One transmitter and Inspire 1 fit in a portable pack for fast deployment. The solution is capable of transmitting in full HD.

In addition to the TVU One, TVU’s TVUPack TM8200 also integrates with DJI’s Inspire 1. At IBC, DJI and TVU demonstrated live stream footage from drones from two different locations remote from the RAI – in the skies above Barbing in Germany and from Baarn in the Netherlands.
