With just over 400 days to go until the Opening Ceremony of the 2024 Summer Olympics, TVU Networks is preparing to offer broadcasters and content creators the latest in cloud-based live video production tools and dedicated technical support both onsite in Paris and remotely.
TVU said it expects its cloud-based production solutions to be in especially high demand next summer by broadcasters. The company saw a 245 per cent increase in total hours logged across its portfolio of cloud products last winter during Qatar 2022 compared to the total hours for the earlier Tokyo summer and Beijing winter games combined.
A variety of TVU IP and cloud-based remote production solutions will be used to cover the Games, which takes place from 26th July to 11th August 2024. They include TVU RPS One for portable hybrid remote production; TVU Producer for professional cloud production; TVU RPS and TVU RPS Link Encoder for synchronised multi-camera IP remote production; and TVU Remote Commentator for synchronised on-air audio commentaries, the company said.
The company’s production tools will be available on a rental basis depending on the specific needs of users, it added.
TVU Networks tools are also available for other production- and distribution-related tasks. TVU Search is an AI-driven tool offering cloud-native ingest, indexing, search and clipping to help storytellers locate specific content quickly from a large volume of recorded and live video, it said.
TVU Networks said it will also make its TVU One 5G cellular transmitters available to broadcasters for coverage of the event. The transmitter, which supports 1080p and 4K HDR with sub-second latency, leverages the company’s patented IS+ technology for resilience and bandwidth efficiency.
“TVU Networks is excited to be a part of next year’s Summer Games and to support our customers in their coverage of this iconic global event,” said TVU Networks CEO Paul Shen.
“With our cloud-based remote production ecosystem, AI-driven TVU Search, and experienced equipment rental process, we are confident that broadcasters will have the tools they need to deliver captivating coverage onsite and remotely. Our dedicated technical support teams are committed to providing any assistance to our customers, ensuring their success throughout the event.”
