TVU Networks launches next-gen system for IP video switching, routing, and distribution
TVU Networks announced the release of the next generation of its TVU Grid IP video switching, routing, and distribution solution. The latest version of TVU Grid delivers greater flexibility, enhanced scalability and built-in scheduling and automation tools. These enhancements to TVU Grid will be on display at the TVU Networks booth (2.B28) at IBC.
TVU Grid is a powerful IP video solution that enables TV stations to manage, route, switch and distribute live video content through both public and private Internet connections. Because the solution is video-source agnostic, TVU Grid can seamlessly switch between any connected IP or SDI sources.
The latest enhancements to TVU Grid include a newly designed browser-based central management tool that delivers enhanced management and control over a greater number of video streams. TVU has also introduced a fully-integrated scheduling tool that enables fully automated switching between live streams. Additionally, with TVU Grid’s open API, broadcasters can fully integrate the solution with other business-critical tools within their broadcast workflow including video playout, production automation and third party scheduling solutions.
“As broadcasters turn to an IP-based workflow, TVU continues to deliver comprehensive end-to-end solutions to ease their transition. Over the past year, TVU Grid has seen strong adoption by many of the largest broadcast organizations in the world. Not only does TVU offer a powerful IP distribution solution capable of distributing video streams from any source, with these enhancements, TVU Grid delivers a seamless IP-based distribution solution that can be deeply and easily integrated into the production workflow of any broadcast organization,” said Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks.
