MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA - September 23, 2020 - TVU Networks, the market and technology leader in cloud and IP-based live video solutions, today announced California Governor's Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) has purchased a complete TVU live video solution, which includes a TVU One transmitter, TVU Transceiver and TVU Grid. Cal OES has been able to provide pool feed video of the governor's COVID-19 weekly press briefings. As the pandemic continues to affect the state, TVU's live video solutions will allow Cal OES to share live coverage with local broadcasters, as well as national broadcast and cable news networks safely and in support of social distancing guidelines.

At the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic, TVU launched Project Pool Feed, which allowed government entities across the country to provide essential live video pool feeds for news stations. In California, Cal OES began participating in Project Pool Feed in April, allowing officials to safely and reliably share critical information with residents across the state during the pandemic.

Cal OES has invested in its own TVU equipment with a data plan as a longer-term solution for distributing content to local and national media outlets. The TVU One transmitter will also allow for coverage of remote briefings, providing the flexibility of broadcasting official events from any location. TVU Grid provides scalable live video distribution to TV, radio, news publications, news portal, social media platforms, CDNs and the state's website. Project Pool Feed continues to serve many states in providing critical information to their residents through news organizations in their local markets.

The services provided by TVU have been critical for us to provide information to the public, while doing that through a safe means for staff and principals. We were able to get the equipment set up without difficulty and begin providing crucial information to Californians, said Brian Ferguson, Deputy Director of Crisis Communications. The TVU Grid pool feeds give us strong reach with media outlets across the entire state, as well as nationally, and allows our team to reliably and safely share the latest developments at press briefings.

During the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic, our Project Pool Feed helped state and local governments quickly share information while respecting social distancing restrictions, said Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks. In seeing how effective the technology can be when applied in a crisis, these municipalities realize the value and advantage of TVU Grid for disseminating information reliably to local, national, and international news organizations. We are proud to work with Governor Gavin Newsom and his team to help stay connected to news organizations both now and after the COVID-19 crisis has passed.

TVU One is a sixth-generation mobile transmitter that can transmit live broadcast quality video from any location by aggregating all available data connections, including cellular, WiFi, Ethernet and satellite with sub-second latency. It features the HEVC video compression standard and TVU's patented Inverse StatMux Plus (IS+) transmission algorithm to provide superior, reliable video with less overhead. TVU One also supports cellular 5G.

TVU Grid delivers scalable point-to-multipoint switching, routing and distribution of live video distribution over IP. News agencies and media organizations around the world use TVU Grid to share and exchange reliable live broadcast quality video feeds with virtually no latency. With TVU Grid, broadcasters can transition toward an entirely IP-based infrastructure by using a standard internet connection to deliver high-quality, low-latency video from one place to many others, resolving the need for traditional expensive fiber and satellite. TVU GridLink provides a video preview from hundreds of news agencies and has embedded rich metadata to help with live content search.

The backbone edge device within the TVU Ecosystem, TVU Transceiver is designed to host multiple TVU applications that can accomplish several tasks simultaneously. TVU Transceiver allows users to view, manage and monitor all video content from one device. It is also the gateway to TVU Grid, allowing IP content to be routed and distributed within your network or with partner networks.
