TVU Networks to Demonstrate IP Solutions for Live Video 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 IBC.

Making their first showing in Europe will be: the TVU One mobile transmitter solution, TVU Router for delivery of over 200Mbps, version 3.0 of TVU RPS (Remote Production System), TVU Producer, API integration with the Associated Press ENPS news production management system and version 6.0 update for TVU portable transmitters.

TVU Networks will show its TVU One live mobile IP news gathering transmitter with integrated H.265/HEVC compression standard. With an established customer base, TVU One with HEVC delivers high-quality IP video transmission performance and 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. It’s available with embedded modems and can transmit simultaneously over multiple mediums, including cellular, microwave, satellite, BGAN, WiFi, and Ethernet.

TVU will also be showing the rack-mount TVU MLink model TE4500 live video transmitter with HEVC and 4K support. TVU MLink provides 3G/4G LTE transmission capabilities to satellite and microwave vehicles. Combining TVU’s Inverse StatMux Plus technology together with HEVC, it delivers a high-quality picture with more efficient compression and less data usage.

Another product making its IBC debut will be TVU Router, which can deliver over 200Mbps of secure, reliable, high-speed and untethered Internet connectivity remotely. Now offered as a software option for TVUPack and TVU One users, TVU Router provides an easy way to send and receive IP-based data from a remote location to any other location using the Internet. With TVU Router as a portable field access point, 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.

The latest version of TVU RPS, version 3.0, will also be demonstrated at IBC. Version 3.0 features the ability to synchronise 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. TVU RPS enables the production of multi-camera news or sports program in a remote location using mainly a broadcaster’s existing control room in their studio and a public Internet connection from the field to deliver frame accurate, genlocked and synchronized multi-camera remote production. 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.

The company will also bring to Europe for the first time its TVU Producer software for web-based live production. Running completely on an existing TVU Transceiver, TVU Producer features a simple Web interface and support for Facebook API. With it, a producer can work within the same broadcast workflow as a traditional TV producer. Users can seamlessly switch between incoming TVU transmitter sources, SDI inputs and uploaded video slate sources, add a graphic overlay and stream the produced output to Facebook Live.
