TVU Me – TVU Me is a new IP video marketplace that enables broadcasters to discover and purchase live or recorded video content from other broadcasters, freelancers, and independent production crews from around the world.
Additionally, the official daily video program, “NAB Show LIVE,” will utilize TVU transmitters for live streaming from the halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center, and the show’s video decoding and distribution will be done with a TVU Transceiver. The “NAB Show LIVE” will be broadcast online at nabshow.com, broadcastbeat.com, the NAB Show YouTube Channel, and the Broadcast Beat YouTube Channel. It will feature live streaming of select conference sessions as well as interviews with leading industry experts and vendors.
“We’re thrilled that the producers of the NAB Show LIVE will use our gear for their live, daily show video coverage,” says Paul Shen, CEO of TVU Networks. “This looks to be a very dynamic show for us this year, and being such a key part of the organization’s official live programming underscores our enthusiasm and commitment to this industry.
