TVU Grid enables broadcasters to acquire live video from different sources and distribute it to other Grid-enabled locations. TVU Grid provides the ability to route live video streams with as low as a half-second delay over IP networks to one or more Grid-enabled news stations anywhere in the world. Stations can take any video source, whether it be an SDI feed, IP video camera, Internet video, or a TVU transmitter and distribute the live video stream to any number of locations with sub-second latency. TVU Grid’s simple to use interface gives users control over the switching and routing of video streams from anywhere on a network of Grid-enabled locations.
