TVU Networks and rsquo; New Feature for Social Production Enables Real-time Virtual Communication and Interaction Among Production Crew and Talent Posted: 29/05/2020
TVU Networks and rsquo; New Feature for Social Production Enables Real-time Virtual Communication and Interaction Among Production Crew and Talent

With Partyline from TVU Networks call participants can achieve a unique level of communication and interaction from remote locations as though they were in the same physical studio while producing live and pre-recorded programming. Partyline enables production personnel, talent and tools to collaborate remotely in real time with full HD video quality and perfectly synchronized audio and video. Partyline is making its debut as an integrated part of award-winning TVU Producer, a simple and scalable cloud-based solution for broadcast quality production and will also be incorporated within the TVU ecosystem for use with other TVU solutions.

“The global COVID pandemic has shifted the dynamic of TV production collaboration, requiring talent and technical staff to produce programming from their living rooms,” explains TVU Networks’ CEO Paul Shen. “Professional broadcasters require the ability to interact in real-time while producing programs in fully synchronized and broadcast quality audio and video. When achieved, that’s what we’re calling social production. It should be as close to in-person communication and interaction as possible. Producers shouldn’t have to settle for something that makes creating their important work more cumbersome.”

Media Links JPEG-XS Compression Solution for Bandwidth-Constrained, Low Latency Applications Posted: 09/03/2020
Media Links Showcases JPEG-XS Compression Solution for Bandwidth-Constrained, Low Latency Applications at NAB 2020

Media Links®, manufacturer and pioneer in Media over IP transport technology, announces that its MDP3020 IP Media Gateway now includes support for JPEG-XS compression.

JPEG-XS (extra speed extra small) achieves high quality compression ratios of up to 10:1 and beyond. This makes it ideal for the edge of the IP network where bandwidth is typically quite limited and where the transport of uncompressed high quality video is just not feasible. JPEG-XS ISO/IEC 21122) provides visually lossless quality with sub-millisecond (<1 video frame) delay and is especially designed for latency-critical applications such as live remote event production over wide area networks.

As with all of Media Links’ technology, solutions and professional services, the company offers broadcasters and network providers an agile IP migration path. This ensures that facilities have the benefits that include support for all existing and future formats and standards, overall cost reduction, as well as the ability to launch seamless workflows that support their current and evolving IP networks.
