TVU Networks to provide Georgia Lottery Corp. with IP-based distribution for statewide lottery drawing broadcasts
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – August 15, 2018 – TVU Networks, the global technology and innovation leader in live IP solutions, today announced that the Georgia Lottery Corp. switched from a satellite model to an IP-based distribution system from TVU.
TVU Grid is in use three to four times a day, seven days a week, to distribute the Georgia Lottery drawings to affiliates across the state. Drawings are televised live on WSB-TV, Channel 2 in Atlanta; WALB-TV, Channel 10 in Albany; WJBF-TV, Channel 6 in Augusta; WRBL-TV, Channel 3 in Columbus; WMAZ-TV, Channel 13 in Macon; and WSAV-TV, Channel 3 in Savannah.
TVU Grid enables broadcasters to acquire live video from different sources and distribute it to other Grid-enabled locations. TVU Grid provides the ability to route live video streams with as low as a half-second delay over IP networks to one or more Grid-enabled news stations anywhere in the world. Stations can take any video source, whether it be an SDI feed, IP video camera, Internet video, or a TVU transmitter and distribute the live video stream to any number of locations with sub-second latency. TVU Grid’s simple to use interface gives users control over the switching and routing of video streams from anywhere on a network of Grid-enabled locations.
TVU transmitters are the primary hardware component of TVU Grid, enabling stations to share video in real-time. The TVU Transceiver is a custom-built appliance that sits in each station and connects to Grid via a standard broadband internet connection. Stations can input video from any source to the Transceiver, whether it be from other stations connected to the Grid, from a TVU transmitter, from any online video feed or from another SDI source in the station.
