TVU Networks joins consortium providing live coverage of NASA lift off
TVU Networks has joined a consortium of technology providers tasked with delivering dedicated live video camera angles to global broadcasters covering the historic launch of the first manned commercial space flight by American astronauts on US soil.
This launch also marks the first manned space flight by NASA in nine years. Veteran astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley are set for liftoff on 27 May 2020 from the Kennedy Space Center in Merritt Island, Florida.
TVU will provide technical support and its IP-based TVU Grid solution to help with the worldwide distribution of multiple live video pool feeds positioned to cover the launch of the commercial craft’s dragon capsule. TVU was asked by a group of news organizations to participate in order to provide dynamic remote launch coverage while following the social distancing guideline required at the NASA press site.
Broadcasters across the globe will be able to supplement their use of NASA Television’s feed with additional isolated live video camera feeds in the days leading up to the launch without the need for on-site personnel.
