TVU Networks has recently announced the release of TVU Grid 2.0, the company’s next generation IP video switching, routing and distribution solution already being deployed by a number of large broadcast organisations worldwide.
TVU Grid 2.0 delivers a powerful, scalable and simple to operate solution that enables broadcasters to distribute live video in realtime to other broadcast stations, regardless of location.
Essentially, it uses broadcasters’ existing IP networks to share live video content from any source, whether it be from a cellular ENG transmitter in the field such as TVUPack, or any SDI feed with any number of broadcast stations with just the click of a button.
Using TVU’s advanced frame accurate switching functionality, TVU Grid offers seamless realtime switching capabilities, giving the user the ability to seamlessly switch in realtime to any source video made available on the Grid or from the internet. TVU Grid is easily integrated into a broadcast station’s workflow and enables broadcast stations to dramatically reduce the amount of equipment required to share video with other stations.
“TVU Grid brings down the walls of a broadcast station, enabling them to bring in and send out video content in a cost effective manner,” said Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks. “TVU Grid enables broadcasters to deliver video and business-critical data over the same infrastructure, as the solution reduces a broadcast station’s infrastructure needs to a single Ethernet cable. As TVU Grid is deployed in stations, the solution is becoming an integral part of their operations workflow.”
