The Ihlas News Agency (IHA) in Turkey has taken delivery of 30 TVU One mobile 5G ready transmitter for use throughout Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the Americas.
As part of an agreement between Alen Elektronik and IHA, the agency will continue its implementation of TVU One devices in all provinces in Turkey and all overseas offices.
“We’re looking forward to a strong and strategic relationship between TVU and IHA that furthers the news agency’s mission to provide high-quality, late-breaking coverage from anywhere in the world,” said Emad Qawasmi, sales director, MENA, TVU Networks. “We’re confident they’ll see significant improvement in the quality of their newsgathering efforts with the addition of our latest 5G-ready mobile transmission technology.”
The TVU One simultaneously aggregates up to 12 data connections from extensive networks in over 180 countries – including cellular 3G/4G/5G LTE, WiFi, ethernet, satellite, microwave and BGAN – automatically aggregating all available infrastructure to transmit stable, broadcast-quality video from any location, said TVU.
Additionally, the company’s patented Inverse StatMux Plus (IS+) video/audio algorithm ensures reliable transmission regardless of the environment – congested, remote, mountainous, or from a speeding vehicle.
The hardware’s HEVC/H.265 encoding chip provides full broadcast quality 4K, 10-bit true 60fps HDR video at bitrates as low as 3 Mbps (or 1080p60 HDR as low as 800 Kbps), added the company. The real-time dual encoder simultaneously records a full 4K/HD copy of the live video for later download, and a bi-directional IFB audio feed which makes it easy to communicate between studio and field operators with near-zero latency.
