>> About Visual Unity projects for customers such as voyo.cz and cinema.cz.” The success of this initial involvement was acknowledged in January when TopFun returned to Visual Unity for help in setting up TopFun TV. This involved an expansion of the vuMedia system to incorporate secure, live multiscreen content distribution to mobile devices and on the fly transcoding of 15 live channels in SD and HD quality. Plans are in place to expand the system to 30 channels. Radek Pirkryl, sales director of TopFun, says: “We enlisted Visual Unity’s help with this project on the basis of our excellent relationship with the company and our good experiences with its vuMediaTM  platform, which has allowed us to get as close as possible to our end customers. We are also very happy with Visual Unity’s vuNetTM  module, which has enabled us to stream digital content in the Czech and Slovak Republics and to distribute both VoD and linear broadcast streams. Visual Unity has given us all the technical support we have needed and this on-going assistance. Petru adds: “The TopFun projects have worked extremely well and it is always satisfying when a customer returns to Visual Unity for help in expanding their business. We are continuing to support TopFun and TopFun TV and we are confident that our in depth understanding of the complexities of the broadcast chain, coupled with our in-house software expertise, will enable them to optimize their workflow and control how their brand is managed and monetized in the multiscreen environment.” Visual Unity is an international Systems Integrator bridging the gap between linear broadcast, IT and IPTV to help clients reach and engage audiences on any screen.  Since 1991, the team has been designing and delivering turnkey broadcast systems and complex multiscreen solutions worldwide – from the latest HD Outside Broadcast vehicles and playout facilities to live internet streaming and Video on Demand services.
