TVU Networks Introduces H.265/HEVC Transmitter
TVU One with HEVC encoding.
TVU Networks new TVU One transmitter for mobile newsgathering supports the H.265/HEVC video compression standard.
The introduction of TVU One with HEVC follows the October 2016 introduction of the rackmount MLink TE4500 H.265/HEVC and 4K encoding solution. The MLink live video uplink provides cellular 4G LTE transmission capabilities to satellite and microwave vehicles, vans and trucks.
The TVU One with HEVC cellular mobile solution uses both HEVC video compression and TVU’s patented Inverse Statmux Plus (IS+) transmission algorithm.
“IP-based video delivery is advancing at a breakneck pace right now, and our continuing rollout of H.265 supported video solutions is intended to take advantage of the improved compression and data management inherent in HEVC encoding,” said Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks. “The compression is much more efficient, particularly when combined with our IS+ technology. By taking advantage of both, the TVU One with HEVC sets a new standard for latency of just 0.5 seconds – even in situations where transmission is being done from inside a moving vehicle. It uses less data, with less overhead and performs with even greater stability than ever before.”
The TVU One with HEVC is already shipping, with orders from the nationwide Tokyo Broadcasting System (TBS) network. The New York bureau of TBS and RKB Mainichi Broadcasting Corp. (RKB) - a sub key station of the TBS network based in Fukuoka, Japan – have ordered multiple TVU One with HEVC units for their field operations.
TBS is already using TVU One mobile transmitters at network headquarters and international bureaus, including New York City, Washington, DC, London, Beijing, Bangkok, Seoul, and Moscow, for mission-critical news gathering.
