TVU and Panasonic have announced a new collaboration with the introduction of two new video solutions.
Panasonic's AJ-PX270 handheld HD camcorder has been integrated with TVU's Transceivers which means the camera is now able to stream directly to the transceiver via cellular, WiFi or ethernet connection.
Each Panasonic camera has a unique network ID that communicates to the TVU Transceiver or TVU Command Center, a cloud-based management and control system. The camera provides an IP video stream, thumbnail and status to the Transceiver or Command Center.
In addition, a live stream from the Panasonic P2 camera can be triggered, monitored and managed on the TVU Transceiver or TVU Command Center interface. The streams can then be distributed to other locations via the TVU Grid which is a scalable IP-based video switching, routing and distribution solution.
Speaking about the collaboration, which will be on show at NAB, Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks, said: “It’s a prime example of creating an easier workflow for our customers, and we’re eager for them to see how easy and powerful the Panasonic/TVU combination is for them.
"No matter their location, they can acquire and transmit live, low-latency, HD video over IP, and distribute the video with TVU Grid to multiple outlets. In addition, the integration provides an entry into the TVU Grid ecosystem and a part of the largest global video distribution network with over 2500 broadcast stations.”
