Already in use by hundreds of leading broadcast organizations around the world, TVUPack gives broadcasters satellite and microwave TV truck functionality in a lightweight backpack. TVUPack is the original one button operation backpack, is simple to use and provides broadcasters with low-latency, HD-quality signal that enables them to broadcast live at any time and from any location. TVUPack has been used to deliver professional-quality live HD footage of a number of important events including the London Olympics, U.S. presidential election primaries, the World Cup, April's Friends of Syria conference in Paris, and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's recent tour of the Middle East and North Africa.
TVUPack is powered by TVU's proprietary Inverse StatMux technology, which dynamically segments a live video signal and transmits the segments through multiple independent 3G/4G/WiFi/WiMax connections, and the industry's first TVU variable bit-rate (VBR) technology, which dynamically adjusts the compression ratio according to the total available bandwidth. TVUPack also incorporates Qualcomm RaptorQ advanced forward error correction and an enhanced H.264 encoder. As a result, TVUPack is able to deliver unmatched stability, resiliency and picture quality -- even in the most challenging network environments.
