TVU Networks emphasizes its innovation in IP video technology and its worldwide growth
Heading into the end of a year, TVU Networks shares its annual year-in-review, detailing the company’s growth.
“Our focus remains on constant innovation within the industries we serve as we increase our presence around the world,” said Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks. “Our latest solutions were designed with our customers’ needs in mind even as we were committed to developing reliable, efficient and effective IP video technology. In addition, we were able to deliver world-class customer support throughout the year whenever and wherever we were needed.”
Added Shen, “We are carrying the momentum we gained this year into all aspects of our 2018 product, services and technology development. And as we continue to help our customers meet their challenges and needs in IP video in 2018, we will also continue to expand the TVU brand globally.”
TVU Networks provided essential support this year to its customers during a wide variety of events, from Super Bowl 51, NFL regular season coverage, and racecar driver Devin O’Connell’s live race streaming, to Kenya and South Korea’s presidential election coverage, and Hurricane Harvey coverage by Texas-based broadcasters in the midst of the storm.
The company launches new products and technology while increasing its global presence
The company welcomed several new personnel to its sales team in places like Thailand, Australia, Germany and Korea, and expanded its sales team across the globe. TVU welcomed Dave Demmocks as its Director of Sales in Australia and New Zealand, Marc Derks as Sales Director for Benelux, Scandinavia, and Germany, Roberto Musso as Sales Director in Italy, Johnny Ha as its Sales Director in Korea, and Abdalla Elhag as its East and Central Africa Sales Director. Internationally, the company also hired Tankhun Intaraphan as its Sales Manager in Thailand. Within the U.S., TVU welcomed Marcel Fontaine as its Southwestern Senior Sales Executive and Tyson Atherholt as its Northeast Region Senior Sales Executive.
2017 saw TVU Networks expand its line of end-to-end IP-based ecosystem of hardware and software products, workflows and services designed for live video acquisition, production and operational efficiency. The company introduced several new products, including a new version of its flagship TVU One mobile IP newsgathering transmitter that features H.265/HEVC video compression standard support; TVU Router, which delivers high-speed Internet connectivity remotely; TVU Transcriber for AI-based audio to text transcription and TVU TimeLock for wireless, remote production.
Shen concluded: “We’re thrilled with our overall growth in 2017, and we strive to push the live video industry forward even more so next year and further into the future.”
