TVU Networks and Vislink are to launch a new TVUPack with Vislink’s integrated hybrid microwave IP technology. The jointly developed TVUPack is described as the world’s first portable IP newsgathering solution capable of simultaneously aggregating microwave bandwidth with multiple cellular data connections.

The TVUPack is the first fully-integrated product to emerge from the partnership between TVU Networks and Vislink announced in April, and will be on display at IBC2014 in the TVU Networks booth (2.B28) and on the Vislink stand (1.A69).
The new solution integrates the TVUPack TM8200 with Vislink’s hybrid microwave IP technology. Utilising TVU’s powerful Inverse StatMux IP transmission protocols, the TVUPack is able to combine multiple cellular data connections with Vislink’s hybrid microwave IP technology, enabling the transmission of HD video simultaneously over cellular and microwave connections with sub-second latency. As a fully integrated IP newsgathering solution, the TVUPack combines best-of-breed cellular and IP microwave transmission technologies into a single mobile lightweight backpack.
"Vislink has long been an innovator in video transmission systems, and we are pleased to partner with TVU to provide an innovative new best-of-breed solution," said Mike Payne, CEO of Vislink. "This integrated package is the first in the world to combine the best in cellular transmission technology from TVU with Vislink’s award-winning microwave uplink solutions. This integrated joint solution enables customers to overcome the inherent limitations of cellular and microwave infrastructure, when they are used alone. The new generation TVUPack combines both infrastructures into a single small backpack and will significantly increase the transmission success rate in extremely challenging conditions. We look forward to working with TVU to provide additional transmission solutions in the future."
"Mobile IP newsgathering has become a business critical tool for broadcasters, and we are thrilled to partner with Vislink to deliver a superior hybrid solution that meets the demand for greater resiliency and flexibility. TVU and Vislink have partnered to offer customers the most powerful, robust joint cellular-microwave transmission solution available. TVU offers customers the industry’s most comprehensive IP video solutions platform, and we are proud to push the boundaries to deliver robust IP transmissions from more locations than ever before, in even the most challenging bandwidth environments," said Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks.

Features include:
• Field crews can broadcast over cellular and microwave networks simultaneously, utilizing all available bandwidth to ensure a more robust and stable transmission. The system supports up to six 3G/4G/LTE connections as well as 2 or 7 GHz microwave
• Users can add or remove microwave or cellular connections seamlessly without interrupting the transmission
• Simple one button operation eliminates the need for in-field configuration
• The solution is the first to offer Vislink microwave transmission functionality in a backpack, sending video signals up to 4x farther than COFDM/DVB-T
