TVU Networks Expands Distribution of TVUPack 3G/4G Cellular Uplink Solutions in Latin America

TVU Networks Offers TVUPack Cellular-Based Live Video Solutions to Professional Broadcasters in Central America, South America and the Caribbean With Sony Professional Solutions Latin America (PSLA)

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/04/13 -- TVU Networks, the global technology leader in portable live electronic news gathering (ENG) broadcast solutions, announced today that the TVUPack family of live video and audio transmission products will be distributed via Sony Professional Latin America (PSLA) in the Latin America professional broadcast market.

Through this arrangement, PSLA will work with its network of local resellers throughout the region to deliver TVUPack solutions to broadcast customers in Central America, South America and the Caribbean. Sony resellers will offer the complete suite of TVUPack backpack and camera mount cellular uplink solutions, including TVUPack Mini SE, a new fully-integrated wireless uplink solution purpose-built for Sony shoulder camcorders.

"Sony has worked extensively to bring the most innovative industry-leading technologies to our customers, and TVUPack is a trusted, proven 3G/4G uplink solution," said Mr. Luiz Padilha, vice president of sales and marketing, PSLA. "Because of the wide availability of 3G networks across the region and the deployment of LTE in areas such as Brazil and Argentina, we are eager to work with TVU to deliver the next step in live broadcast. With TVUPack, we can offer our customers a powerful, fully-integrated portable broadcast solution that can transmit live video from more places than has ever been possible."

"TVUPack is relied upon by leading broadcasters around the world because of its superior picture quality, ease of use and reliable stable transmission capabilities. TVU and Sony have an established history of working closely together on technology innovation, and we are pleased to extend our partnership to a sales relationship that will enable Sony customers to deliver live video to viewers in a cost-effective manner," said Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks.

The TVUPack product line includes ultra-portable ENG solutions that enable broadcasters to capture and broadcast live interviews and events in SD or HD over multiple 3G/4G cellular wireless networks, WiFi, WiMax, and BGAN, effectively giving organizations and individuals the satellite or microwave TV truck or van functionality in a lightweight backpack. TVUPack is the original one button operation ENG backpack, and is simple to use, providing broadcasters with low-latency, HD-quality signal that enables them to broadcast live at any time and from any location. TVUPack video transmitters are available in backpack, camera mount and belt mount configurations.

To address the limited bandwidth and instability of 3G/4G wireless networks, TVU Networks developed its proprietary Inverse StatMux technology, which dynamically segments a live video signal and transmits the segments through multiple independent 3G/4G connections. TVUPack's intelligent control system monitors bandwidth and performance of each connection in real-time to ensure that each wireless connection is fully utilized, delivering the most stable broadcast-quality live signal available from a portable ENG solution. With TVU technology, broadcasters can deliver the best picture quality available to their viewers.

The TVUPack family of products has been used to deliver professional-quality live HD footage of a number of important events including the London Olympics, U.S. presidential elections, the World Cup, Hurricane Sandy, and the Super Bowl.

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees.

Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningf...
