Has IBC come at a good time for the electronic media industry? Why?
Yes it has. There are so many new and interesting technological developments recently that it feels like the industry is experiencing a bit of a renaissance in broadcast. Some of the key ones that we see at TVU include transitioning to IP infrastructure and workflows, the use of unmanned aerial vehicles including drones for ENG and remote reporting using mobile smartphones.
What do you think are the key development in, or threats to, your market sector at the current time?
The transition to IP video infrastructure is a key development. The benefits and advantages of using IP to replace or augment traditional infrastructure technologies are hard to ignore for anyone working with video content. At TVU, we are increasingly engaged with our customers about the best way to integrate IP into existing workflows for acquisition, distribution, switching and routing video.
Why should delegates visit your stand at IBC?
We will be demonstrating a number of new IP-based live video solutions. This includes TVU One, our new ultra-compact mobile cellular live HD video transmitter, and our Aerial Newsgathering Pack that features drone-based live transmission. We will also showcase our entire line of products, including our award-winning TVU Grid IP-based video routing, switching and distribution solution.
