SBS’s TVUPacks are based in their Sydney, Melbourne, and Canberra studios for use by SBS and NITV reporters, with one pack also in London and SBS uses its TVUPack TM8200 uplink solution for cameras with industry standard SDI and composite connections. The TVUPack 8200 is often used by broadcasters such as SBS to solve the common challenge of covering live breaking news from locations that are difficult or costly to access using traditional ENG technologies.
TVU has also developed TVUAnywhere, an app also used by SBS TV that enables the broadcaster to transmit quality live footage when a TVUPack isn’t available.
The TVUPack TM8200 is TVU Networks’ premier mobile uplink backpack transmitter and is able to transmit live video in HD, the TM8200 features a removable encoder for fixed placement in a studio or other inside setting. It also houses multiple cellular modem cards in a hard case modem module that can be easily removed and moved for optimal transmission. The TVUPack TM8200 utilises multiple 3G/4G/LTE Connections and supports up to eight 3G/4G LTE, microwave, satellite, WiFi and BGAN data connections. The TM8200 also simultaneously aggregates up to nine connections including Ethernet to broadcast live in SD or HD.
