France Televisions and TVU Networks unveil a new workflow that utilizes TVU’s cloud solutions for production, remote collaboration, and IFB, intercom and mix-minus management, the TVU RPS One for synchronized multi-camera live content capture, and 5G networks plus two Starlink Maritime units for transmission and data aggregation.

On July 26th, France Televisions utilized hyper-mobile broadcasting for their Paris 2024 1-year countdown talk show. In total, they produced nearly four hours of live content - three hours continuously on the ‘franceinfo’ news channel and a half hour on the ‘Paris Idf’ regional news journal, and also streamed live on Twitch.The multi-location and multi-camera event took place in Paris aboard a moving boat with limited space. A five-camera setup involved four cameras positioned on the boats and one camera mounted on a motorcycle following the action along the Seine River. In addition, two more live broadcasts were taking place in separate locations in Paris and Ukraine. All were done using the TVU RPS One and TVU One transmitters. The seven live feeds were seamlessly synchronized in TVU Producer's cloud production platform, with zero execution delay.

The broadcaster used two Starlink Maritime systems and the 5G network to help counteract the challenges of cellular bandwidth on the moving boats. The TVU RPS One backpack transmitter with 5G modems was used to transmit synchronized signals from multiple cameras to the TVU remote cloud production platform, aggregating 5G and Starlink connectivity. A motorcycle on land was also equipped with a TVU One 5G transmitter for capturing additional footage.
The TVU Producer cloud-based platform served as the backbone of the production, facilitating seamless collaboration among the team members with much of the production done remotely from a France Television studio. In addition, camera feeds were transmitted as a redundancy to both the TVU Producer cloud platform and the studio, providing automatic backup in case of unforeseen circumstances and ensuring uninterrupted broadcasting.

TVU Networks will be demonstrating the TVU RPS One and its complete portfolio of cloud and IP-based solutions for video production at IBC 2023 in Amsterdam, Netherlands in Hall 5, Stand C82 between September 15th to 18th.
