TVU Networks will provide rental packages and on-the-ground technical support throughout this summer’s FIFA World Cup in all 12 Russian cities that will be hosting matches.
The tournament will commence next month with over 150 pieces of TVU Networks equipment and local SIM Cards already lined up to enable broadcasters to deliver matches and tournament news to consumers worldwide.
Solutions hired will include the TVU One, which transmits signals over 3G, 4G/LTE wireless portable and fixed video transmitters, and incorporates TVU’s proprietary Inverse StatMux Plus (IS+) technology.
This secures bandwidth by transmitting the video signal over multiple channels simultaneously, allowing broadcasters to push a larger amount of data over the network, resulting in better picture signal and ultimately, higher picture quality for viewers.
Inverse StatMux Plus also combats network instability through monitoring each network connection in real-time, making corrections and adjustments as network conditions change. Use of the HEVC/H.265 video compression standard also reduces video production costs as less data is used while shot quality remains the same.
“TVU Networks has the solutions required for live video broadcasting of high profile national and global events from sports tournaments through to coronations, natural disasters and elections,” said Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks. “We are constantly looking for ways to help our customers reduce their video production costs while allowing them to deliver the best live shots regardless of the transmission environment.
“We’re excited to be part of this world-renowned sports event and look forward to supporting broadcasters using TVU equipment, whether owned or hired, at this event and many other international sport competitions in the future.“
