TVU's award-winning TVUPack is an ultra-portable ENG solution that enables broadcasters to capture and broadcast live interviews and events in HD over multiple 3G/4G cellular wireless networks, WiFi, WiMax, and BGAN, giving organizations and individuals the satellite or microwave TV truck or van functionality in a light weight backpack. Using advanced bandwidth management technology to ensure the highest-quality signal possible, TVUPack enables organizations to broadcast live HD video from virtually any location in the world.
To address the limited bandwidth and instability of 3G/4G wireless networks, TVU Networks developed its proprietary Inverse Stratmux 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.
Hundreds of TVUPacks have been deployed by major newsgathering organizations and independent video producers around the globe to broadcast live events in SD and HD.
