Networks, the market and technology leader in cloud and IP-based live video solutions, today announced it is now offering rights-cleared access to live external video feeds of locations across Tokyo until the conclusion of the Summer Games. The 24/7 beauty shots are part of TVU’s extensive on-site support effort during the event.
There are professional camera feeds available from Tokyo – including feeds from TVU’s local Japanese partners – showcasing familiar and unique locales around the city, including the Japan National Stadium and Athlete Village. The live feeds will be available through the Paralympic Games, which follow the Summer Games and end on Sept. 5.
News outlets can use the fixed shots for bumpers, live introductions, and other interstitial content for broadcast, web content, and social media posts. The feeds are available through TVU MediaSource, a cloud-based market for real-time access to video content from trusted media organizations.
Beyond live camera feeds, TVU will have an extensive inventory of TVU One mobile transmitters for rent in Tokyo during the Summer Games, as well as the TVU Remote Production System (RPS) for multi-camera REMI production. Plus, professional ENG camera crews are available to cover the event.
Broadcasters can access the TVU Anywhere app, which allows full HD live transmission of video from iOS or Android smartphones. Other cloud-based rental options include TVU Producer for live multi-camera video production in the cloud with no latency, as well as TVU Grid for scalable point-to-multipoint live video distribution and the TVU Partyline broadcast-quality live production collaboration platform.
TVU also has studio space in downtown Tokyo available to rent. Studios are equipped with TVU Grid for broadcast-quality video transmission. With every studio rental, live video capture will be automatically recorded and indexed via TVU MediaMind’s AI-based technology. Video can be searched in real time, and clips can be downloaded for free for 30 days.
“You don’t need to be on location to give your viewers a taste of Tokyo during the Summer Games. We have video feeds available to provide a number of backdrops for your content,” said Kap Shin, global services, TVU Networks. “If you are in Tokyo, TVU has you covered with equipment, crew, and studio rentals. With comprehensive on-site support, we are committed to helping our customers deliver the best live coverage to their viewers.”
