TVU Networks Demonstrating IP-Based Live Video Solutions at IBC 2017

The latest TVU IP-based solutions for live TV links deliver operational efficiency, streamlined workflow and cost-effective automation. The company will showcase a new Associated Press partnership for EPNS integration along with other products at IBC 2017.

TVU Networks will showcase its end-to-end IP-based ecosystem of new and current hardware and software products at the upcoming International Broadcasters Convention (IBC).

Making their first showings in Europe will be the currently shipping TVU One mobile transmitter with HEVC compression, TVU Router, v3.0 of TVU RPS (Remote Production System), v6.0 update for TVU portable transmitters, TVU Producer, and API integration with the Associated Press ENPS news production management system .

The TVU One model TM1000 live mobile IP newsgathering transmitter with integrated H.265/HEVC compression standard delivers high-quality IP video transmission performance. It features the company’s patented Inverse Statmux Plus (IS+) transmission algorithm to transmit dependable HD quality video with half-second latency even in a moving vehicle.

TVU will show the rack-mount TVU MLink model TE4500 live video transmitter. It has HEVC and 4K support for high-quality pictures with more efficient compression and less data usage.

Another IBC debut will be TVU Router, which can deliver over 200Mbps of secure, reliable, high-speed and untethered internet connectivity remotely. With it, users can transfer and receive files, stream video, search the web, utilize any IP connected device or service to pass data for a high-speed, reliable and secure data connection.

TVU will also demonstrate the latest version of TVU RPS, v3.0. The new version can synchronize across multiple unit pairs for additional channels, add a VLAN tunnel to connect any IP device between the field and studio, and includes VoIP support. The TVU RPS transmitter encodes up to six synchronized SDI sources and transmits high-quality and low-latency IP video from the remote location to a studio-based receiver, and the receiver outputs six synchronized SDI outputs.

Also debuting in Europe is TVU Producer software for web-based live production. It runs on an existing TVU Transceiver, with a simple Web interface and support for Facebook API. It allows the producer work within the same broadcast workflow as a traditional TV producer.

Integrated AP solution

TVU will also highlight new partnerships at IBC, including its new integration with the AP ENPS news production management system. The integration automates and accelerates the transfer and ingest of the linked content to the studio and within newsroom production solutions, using a combination of AP technology with TVU’s new Progressive Download feature. This feature automatically mirrors content recorded in high-resolution to the TVU transmitter’s internal SSD, making it immediately available for transfer and editing.

Version 6.0 for TVU portable transmitters includes Progressive Download and introduces several other new features, including an all-new VoIP service running on TVU devices..

The new TVU Era model TE700 portable transmitter will also be on display. It enables live video streaming for social media platforms, news pool feeds and web streaming from any stationary location.

TVU will also show its current products including TVU Grid, Command Center web-interface for centralized management and control of all live video content and the currently shipping TVU MLink rack-mount transmitter with HEVC and 4K support and the TVU Anywhere app for live video transmission using iPhone and Android devices.
