TVU Networks To Showcase Live VR Transmission Over IP
TVU to Offer Live, Viewer-Directed Immersive Experience with New TVU VR
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.(11 Apr 2016)
TVU Networks, the global technology leader in live IP video solutions, today announced that TVU VR, the first IP- and cellular-based live virtual reality transmission solution, will be shown at NAB 2016, Booth SU4405. Although significant research and development has gone into the development of virtual reality capture and display, the lack of a mobile transmitting device supporting virtual reality has impeded its adoption for use in sports, major events and news. TVU VR removes this barrier to larger scale adoption.
By incorporating TVU's Inverse StatMux Plus (IS+) technology, TVU VR can stream live VR content from anywhere, even in a moving environment like a car or train. TVU VR delivers an ultra-high definition, full frame rate and live 360-degree fully immersive video to any VR headset. The TVU VR transmission solution is platform agnostic. It can deliver video to all major VR platforms including Google Cardboard, Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, HTC Vive and others.
With the ability to transmit live video, TVU VR delivers a true and convincing feeling of being teleported to the actual location, allowing broadcasters to put their viewers in the middle of the event, such as concerts, sports or news. TVU VR has the power to transport the viewer to anywhere in the world - in real-time, virtually.
A pioneer in IP video technology, TVU Networks leads the way guiding thousands of companies worldwide to transition to a predominantly IP-based infrastructure. TVU's new VR solution is further proof of the technology's ability to transmit live from any video source and distribute that video to any external viewing device over IP.
"This technological advancement aligns TVU's expertise in IP and continued efforts to deliver solutions that help broadcasters stay competitive and meet the needs of their audience. The ability to take video from any source and make that available to their viewers in any way they want to experience it is critical for our customers, " said Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks. "TVU VR is another example of our commitment to technology innovation that helps support broadcasters as they transform increasingly into media companies."
TVU will showcase all of its solutions, designed to help organizations fully leverage the extraordinary power of IP for video broadcast, in Booth SU4405 during NAB, to be held from April 16-21 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
