At the IBC Show, Satmission, a global supplier of live broadcast and satellite communication products and services based in Sweden, will debut a new solution integration with TVU Networks – the global technology and innovation leader in live IP video solutions based in Mountain View, California USA. Satmission is one of Europe’s leading designers and manufacturers of mobile satellite communication systems, and will showcase TVU Networks’ product integration in its IP vehicle throughout IBC. The IBC show runs from September 15-19 at the Amsterdam RAI Convention Centre, where Satmission will exhibit in Hall 5, Stand A19. TVU will showcase its complete line of IP video solutions in Hall 2, Stand B28.
“We are excited to be partnering with TVU Networks to provide an IP vehicle solution designed to meet the demands of today’s remote live video production,” said Conny Hedman, CTO, Satmission AB. “The combination of satellite and cellular in one smaller vehicle makes Live Now a cost-effective mobile live video broadcast center. We look forward to displaying the vehicle for the first time at the IBC show.”
The Satmission Live Now™ IP Vehicle Kit turns a car or other motor vehicle into a cost-effective mobile live broadcast production unit. Satmission is integrating its Live Now IP Vehicle with TVU Networks’ award-winning TVU One mobile IP transmitter, TVU MLink live video uplink transmitter, and TVU Router - which delivers Internet connectivity remotely. All three TVU solutions incorporate the company’s proprietary Inverse StatMux (IS+) Plus technology. The technology provides dependable high quality live video from the field to the studio even in unreliable and poor cellular coverage environments by aggregating multiple cellular, WiFi, Satellite, Microwave and BGAN connections for data transmission. By incorporating TVU, Satmission is able to increase ENG broadcast flexibility by providing cellular transmission capabilities as either a primary or back up live video broadcast option.
“TVU Networks and Satmission are both leading industry providers of IP video solutions who are focused on providing the most reliable, high-quality live video solutions possible,” said Kap Shin, EVP Business Development, TVU Networks. “We continue to rapidly expand in Europe with increasing adoption by broadcasters of our family of products. We are looking forward to working with Satmission to provide the best-in-class solutions to their customers and the markets they serve.”
