The TM5000 TVUPack Mini from TVU Networks is a suitable solution for broadcasters, production crews, news agencies, and independent videographers to capture live video and broadcast professional-quality footage on air or direct-to-Web. With its lightweight, untethered, and portable design, the TVUPack Mini is ready to go live at virtually any time and from any location around the world.
At just 2lb , the TVUPack Mini delivers a powerful solution for video transmission in a small form factor. It is designed to fit with a variety of camera setups and can be mounted directly to the back of a full-size shoulder mount camera using the Anton Bauer or IDX accessory mount systems (sold separately). It can also be used with a purpose-built belt mountable case (sold separately).
The TVUPack Mini leverages Inverse StatMux, TVU's powerful video transmission protocol that addresses the limited bandwidth and instability of the 3G / 4G environment by dynamically segmenting a live video signal and transmitting the segments through multiple independent data connections. Its intelligent control system monitors available bandwidth and performance in real time to ensure each data connection is fully utilized, resulting in a more stable, resilient transmission, and superior picture quality.
The TVUPack Mini is also integrated with the Panasonic AG-HPX600 series of cameras. As part of this integration, Panasonic camera operators can monitor the TVUPack Mini's transmission status, bandwidth usage, and connection quality in the viewfinder window, giving field crews an easy way to keep track of each live transmission without interrupting the shot. Camera operators can also get a more detailed snapshot of the transmission status with the push of a button on the camera, enabling video crews to make easy adjustments to live shots on the fly.
