MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 11, 2012) - TVU Networks, the global technology leader in portable live electronic news gathering (ENG) broadcast solutions and JVC Professional Products Company, a leading manufacturer of television cameras for broadcast news, announced today that the companies will showcase an integrated 3G/4G/LTE mobile uplink solution in the JVC booth (number C4314) and TVU booth (number SU8519) at NAB 2012. The solution, which combines the TVUPack Mini with the JVC GY-HM700 series of cameras, gives broadcasters a powerful portable broadcast solution for both direct-to-Web and on-air broadcast.

This joint solution gives broadcasters, production crews, news agencies and independent videographers the ability to broadcast live professional broadcast quality video in a compact, portable and ultra-lightweight form factor. TVUPack Mini weighs under two pounds and fits a wide variety of camera setups including direct camera mount and belt mount configurations. Additionally, TVUPack Mini is simple to use, enabling camera operators to go live with just the push of a button without the need for in-field configuration.

"We chose to partner with TVU because the company offers innovative mobile broadcasting solutions that meet the high standards that JVC customers demand. The combination of JVC cameras and TVUPack Mini gives our customers the ideal solution for video crews to capture and transmit professional video on the go," said Lon Mass, VP Sales and Marketing, JVC Professional Video Products.

The GY-HM700 family of cameras combines JVC's popular compact shoulder form factor with a new level of performance suitable for demanding applications in mainstream production, ENG, and cinematography. With solid state recording capabilities and a fast workflow, the GY-HM700 family of cameras provides camera crews with powerful, versatile professional camcorder solutions that are ideal for mobile ENG.

"We are working closely with JVC to develop joint solutions that better serve our customers' needs. As a result of this relationship, JVC Professional and TVU customers have a powerful mobile solution to capture and transmit live video footage from virtually anywhere in the world while ensuring superior picture quality," said Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks.

Already in use by hundreds of broadcast organizations, the TVUPack family of solutions gives broadcasters satellite microwave TV truck functionality in a lightweight, portable form factor. 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/BGAN/microwave connections. The TVUPack family of solutions is simple to use and provide broadcasters with low-latency, HD-quality signal that enables them to broadcast live at any time and from any location.
