The TVUPack Receiver can be configured to support multiple TVUPack transmitters in the field. This customized rack-mount server is paired to receive live transmission from all of your TVUPack, TVUPack Mini, and TVUPack Mini SE devices, which allows you to monitor the real-time status of multiple packs from a single TVUPack Receiver (based on the configuration). Manage the bit rate, latency, and air card connections from a single interface. Directly speak to the camera operator from the operations center by adding the optional IFB feature. The receiver is available in SD or HD models, and is also compatible with TVU Anywhere mobile application.
