About TVU NETWORKS

People from all parts of the world can now communicate with each other through a variety of video platforms. While many of these platforms work for small meetings or webinars, they don’t provide the video quality or level of support needed for higher end productions. TVU Networks is here to solve that problem by ensuring that high-quality, live video and audio are perfectly synchronized in the cloud no matter where the sources are located and can scale to any size production.

TVU Partyline is the technology of choice for several entertainment awards shows, including The Critics Choice Awards, GRAMMY Awards Premiere Ceremony, and Make-Up Artists & Hair Stylists Guild Awards. Each event offered the attending celebrities and nominees the ability to participate remotely in a shared environment without technical difficulties.

“TVU Partyline was created to power real-time engagement between attendees in broadcast-quality events. It enables all members in a remote production environment to communicate seamlessly as if they were all in the same physical space.

The Power of Real-Time Engagement

Devices showing live news production crew communicating remotely.

There’s a big difference between your standard work day video meetings and a prestigious award show with millions watching. As award shows went virtual to offer safety and flexibility to attendees while providing a more inclusive experience to anyone watching, networks quickly realized that standard video conferencing platforms couldn’t keep up with the needs of a broadcast production. The events that tried to use standard meeting platforms encountered a barrage of technical difficulties and awkward silences, resulting in bad experiences for both celebrities and viewers at home.

Built with real-time engagement capabilities, TVU Partyline is the industry’s only interactive, ultra-low latency, live production collaboration platform. By enabling production crews to communicate remotely as if they were all in the same physical space, the control room can go fully virtual. Beyond the crew members, Partyline also enables producers to allow real-time communication between talent and viewers, no matter where they are located. This real-time collaboration opens the door to high-impact, engaging, interactive content unlike anything you could do before in broadcast quality.
