MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA, Apr 11, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
TVU Networks, the global technology leader in portable live
electronic news gathering (ENG) broadcast solutions and JVC
Professional Products Company, a leading manufacturer of television
cameras for broadcast news, announced today that the companies will
showcase an integrated 3G/4G/LTE mobile uplink solution in the JVC
booth (number C4314) and TVU booth (number SU8519) at NAB 2012. The
solution, which combines the TVUPack Mini with the JVC GY-HM700
series of cameras, gives broadcasters a powerful portable broadcast
solution for both direct-to-Web and on-air broadcast.
This joint solution gives broadcasters, production crews, news
agencies and independent videographers the ability to broadcast live
professional broadcast quality video in a compact, portable and
ultra-lightweight form factor. TVUPack Mini weighs under two pounds
and fits a wide variety of camera setups including direct camera
mount and belt mount configurations. Additionally, TVUPack Mini is
simple to use, enabling camera operators to go live with just the
push of a button without the need for in-field configuration.
"We chose to partner with TVU because the company offers innovative
mobile broadcasting solutions that meet the high standards that JVC
customers demand. The combination of JVC cameras and TVUPack Mini
gives our customers the ideal solution for video crews to capture and
transmit professional video on the go," said Lon Mass, VP Sales and
Marketing, JVC Professional Video Products.
The GY-HM700 family of cameras combines JVC's popular compact
shoulder form factor with a new level of performance suitable for
demanding applications in mainstream production, ENG, and
cinematography. With solid state recording capabilities and a fast
workflow, the GY-HM700 family of cameras provides camera crews with
powerful, versatile professional camcorder solutions that are ideal
for mobile ENG.
"We are working closely with JVC to develop joint solutions that
better serve our customers' needs. As a result of this relationship,
JVC Professional and TVU customers have a powerful mobile solution to
capture and transmit live video footage from virtually anywhere in
the world while ensuring superior picture quality," said Paul Shen,
CEO, TVU Networks.
Already in use by hundreds of broadcast organizations, the TVUPack
family of solutions gives broadcasters satellite microwave TV truck
functionality in a lightweight, portable form factor. TVUPack is
powered by TVU's proprietary Inverse StatMux technology, which
dynamically segments a live video signal and transmits the segments
through multiple independent 3G/4G/WiFi/WiMax/BGAN/microwave
connections. The TVUPack family of solutions is simple to use and
provide broadcasters with low-latency, HD-quality signal that enables
them to broadcast live at any time and from any location.
