TVUPack integration expands with Panasonic, Sony, JVC

TVU Networks has increased integration of its TVUPack Mini camera-mountable 3G/4G cellular uplink solutions with cameras from Panasonic, Sony and JVC. TVU claims TVUPack is the first cellular uplink platform available that offers an integrated camera-mountable solution with professional cameras from the three manufacturers. At just two pounds, TVUPack Mini offers a powerful video transmission solution in a small form factor. TVUPack Mini utilises multiple 3G/4G/WiFi wireless connections to deliver high quality HD picture, giving broadcasters the ability to go live from practically any location with just the push of a single button.  TVUPack Mini is now fully-integrated with the Panasonic AG-HPX600 series of cameras. As part of this integration, Panasonic camera operators can now monitor the TVUPack Mini’s transmission status, bandwidth usage and connection quality in the viewfinder window, giving field crews an easy way to keep track of each live transmission without interrupting the shot. Camera operators can also get a more detailed snapshot of the transmission status with the push of a button on the camera, enabling video crews to easily make adjustments to live shots on the fly. Panasonic integration is also available for the TVUPack TM8100 and TM8200 backpack transmitters. Making its debut at NAB, TVUPack Mini SE is a fully-integrated purpose-built camera mountable ENG solution purpose built for Sony PMW/PDW XDCAM camcorders. TVUPack Mini SE attaches directly onto the 50-pin interface on the camera without the use of any additional cables. Additionally, TVUPack Mini SE offers full camera integration, delivering a realtime tally of transmission status directly in the viewfinder. With its integrated design, TVUPack Mini SE operates as part of the camera, delivering live video with the push of a button. TVU and JVC have worked together to offer a powerful live mobile broadcast solution combining TVUPack Mini with JVC GY-HM700 professional cameras. This lightweight, portable mobile ENG solution offers a powerful option for broadcasters looking to deliver live video either direct-to-web or on-air, and is available for direct purchase from JVC. “TVUPack has worked closely with the major professional camera manufacturers to deliver fully-integrated solutions that fit within our customers’ workflows,” said Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks. SU7105
