Said to be the world’s first portable IP news gathering solution capable of simultaneously and reliably aggregating microwave bandwidth with multiple cellular data connections at unprecedented quality, TVU Networks and Vislink have announced the launch of a next-generation TVUPack with Vislink’s integrated hybrid microwave IP technology. The TVUPack is the first fully-integrated product to emerge from the partnership between TVU Networks and Vislink announced in April.
The joint offering integrates the TVUPack TM8200 with Vislink’s hybrid microwave IP technology. Utilising TVU’s Inverse StatMux IP transmission protocols, the TVUPack is able to combine multiple cellular data connections with Vislink’s hybrid microwave IP technology to give broadcasters unrivalled flexibility, says Vislink, letting them transmit HD video simultaneously over cellular and microwave connections with sub-second latency.
As a fully integrated IP newsgathering solution, the TVUPack is claimed to combine best-of-breed cellular and IP microwave transmission technologies into a single mobile lightweight backpack.
“This integrated package is the first in the world to combine the best in cellular transmission technology from TVU with Vislink’s award-winning microwave uplink solutions. This integrated joint solution enables customers to overcome the inherent limitations of cellular and microwave infrastructure, when they are used alone.
The new generation TVUPack combines both infrastructures into a single small backpack and will significantly increase the transmission success rate in extremely challenging conditions. We look forward to working with TVU to provide additional transmission solutions in the future,” said Mike Payne, CEO of Vislink.
