TVU Networks, the market and technology leader in cloud and IP-based live video solutions, announced that Ihlas News Agency (IHA) has taken delivery of 30 TVU One mobile 5G ready transmitter for use throughout the Middle East, Europe, Asia and the Americas. Founded in 1993 and boasting correspondents in every city in Turkey, the agency’s reach extends to more than 60 countries throughout their worldwide network.
As part of an agreement between Alen Elektronik and IHA, IHA will continue its implementation of TVU One devices in all provinces in Turkey and all overseas offices. Because the news agency values speed of acquisition, resilient technology, and the ability to transmit from some of the world’s most challenging regions, Alen Elektronik recommended the TVU One as the core of their remote broadcast system.
“We’re looking forward to a strong and strategic relationship between TVU and IHA that furthers the news agency’s mission to provide high-quality, late-breaking coverage from anywhere in the world,” said Emad Qawasmi, Sales Director, MENA, TVU Networks. “We’re confident they’ll see significant improvement in the quality of their newsgathering efforts with the addition of our latest 5G-ready mobile transmission technology.”
The ultimate globetrotting video transmitter, the TVU One has proven its unmatched reliability for broadcast news and live production from the most remote areas of the world and in the most unstable conditions imaginable. It simultaneously aggregates up to 12 data connections from extensive networks in over 180 countries – including cellular 3G/4G/5G LTE, WiFi, ethernet, satellite, microwave and BGAN – automatically aggregating all available infrastructure to transmit stable, broadcast-quality video from any location. Additionally, TVU’s patented Inverse StatMux Plus (IS+) video/audio algorithm ensures reliable transmission regardless of the environment – congested, remote, mountainous, or from a speeding vehicle.
The TV One enhances live action with higher contrast, brighter images, and more vivid colors than any other video transmitter. Its breakthrough HEVC/H.265 encoding hardware chip provides full broadcast quality 4K, 10-bit true 60fps HDR video at bitrates as low as 3 Mbps (or 1080p60 HDR as low as 800 Kbps). The real-time dual encoder simultaneously records a full 4K/HD copy of the live video for later download, and a bi-directional IFB audio feed makes it easy to communicate between studio and field operators with near-zero latency. And with a battery life up to 4.5 hours, plus the ability to power or charge any device via USB, USB-C or D-Tap, remote crews have more time to go live, record, communicate, and transfer files.
“With the TV One, international news agencies like IHA can enter a whole new phase of remote broadcasting, with worry-free operation, anywhere in the world, even in the most unstable network conditions,” said Rafael Castillo, Vice President/General Manager, EMEA and Latin America, TVU Networks. “Today, viewers demand high-quality live news not just from the studio, but also from remote locations. We’ve partnered with major cellular networks around the globe to ensure that broadcasters can take advantage of 5G infrastructure for remote reporting. And we’ve developed next-generation solutions like the TVU One mobile transmitter that can automatically aggregate the best connections available, wherever reporters find themselves covering the latest news.”
