Additionally, TVU will introduce technologies and products to enable broadcasters to make a smooth, cost-effective transition to HD.

Already in use by hundreds of broadcast organizations around the globe, TVUPack gives broadcasters satellite/microwave TV truck functionality in a lightweight backpack. TVUPack is powered by TVU's proprietary Inverse StatMux technology, which dynamically segments a live video signal and transmits the segments through multiple independent wireless connections. TVUPack is simple to use and provides broadcasters with low-latency, professional broadcast-quality signal that enables them to broadcast live at any time and from virtually any location around the globe.

Conference attendees can attend the following sessions to learn more about TVUPack 3G/4G uplink solutions:

What: HD on the Go: How Mobile Broadcast Technologies are Easing the Transition to HD
Who: Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks
When: Wednesday, April 18, 2012, 9:30 am
For many broadcasters, the full transition from SD to HD has been difficult and costly, especially when trying to broadcast live from remote locations. Broadcasters have invested millions of dollars in traditional microwave and satellite electronic newsgathering (ENG) trucks that only broadcast in SD. As a result, many critical aspects of a live broadcast that originate from the ability to broadcast remotely are limited to SD due to outdated legacy technology. However, new mobile broadcast solutions now enable organizations to broadcast in full HD from remote locations at a fraction of the cost of traditional ENG trucks by leveraging 3G/4G wireless networks. This presentation is designed to educate broadcasters on the potential of mobile HD 3G/4G broadcast solutions and provide attendees with case studies and other real-world scenarios where organizations are dumping traditional ENG trucks for mobile 3G/4G broadcast solutions in order to provide viewers with a full HD experience.

What: Fattening the Pipe: Overcoming Bandwidth Constraints on 3G/4G Wireless Networks
Who: Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks
When: Wednesday, April 18, 2012, 11:30 am
Over the past few years, numerous mobile broadcast solutions have emerged that are designed to transmit video over 3G/4G wireless network connections. Although these new technologies have opened up many new options for broadcasters, 3G and 4G networks offer limited bandwidth and notoriously unstable connections. As a result, picture quality can suffer dramatically, limiting the way broadcasters can use these flexible new solutions. The purpose of this paper/session is to educate broadcasters on how to overcome bandwidth constraints inherent in transmitting data over 3G/4G network connections in order to send high quality video at lower latency.

What: The New Surveillance: 3G/4G Wireless Tools
Who: Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks
When: Thursday, April 19, 2012, 11:00 am
Law enforcement and defense agencies around the globe are searching for real-time surveillance technologies that enable them to better track and respond to emerging threats. In the past, capturing and transmitting surveillance video in real time required expensive training and infrastructure investments that had poor picture quality. However, new solutions have emerged that enable agencies to capture video and audio footage and transmit an encrypted video signal over existing 3G/4G wireless infrastructure, eliminating many of the traditional roadblocks to securing real-time surveillance footage. This session examines how law enforcement and defense agencies can leverage mobile 3G/4G broadcasting technologies to provide a portable and robust surveillance solution. The session will also provide attendees with real-world examples of how various agencies around the globe are using mobile 3G/4G broadcast solutions to expand their surveillance capabilities.
