TVU Networks was a winner in the inaugural Broadcast Production Awards from NewscastStudio, a trade publication for broadcast production. TVU CAS (Contribution Automation Solution) won in the “Best New Product or Service” category.
“NewscastStudio is a well regarded broadcast industry source, and we’re thrilled with their recognition of our TVU CAS as one of the year’s top technology innovations,” said Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks. “It’s further validation that our overall TVU MediaMind story-centric workflow platform, of which TVU CAS is a critical part, has tremendous revenue-generation and workflow benefits to broadcast professionals and content creators. We’re grateful for this honor.”
TVU CAS is designed to streamline the capture and automatic metadata tagging of live video content. With TVU CAS, all video acquisition resources, such as people and equipment, are identified for specific stories and tasks at the story creation stage. Assignments are automatically pushed to personnel in the field through connected devices. These devices include portable mobile transmitter equipment such as TVU One and TVU Anywhere as well as fixed equipment like TVU MLink. TVU CAS is part of the comprehensive TVU MediaMind workflow, designed to eliminate barriers between social media, digital and broadcast production departments and revolutionize how media is produced, distributed and consumed within existing workflows.
