Live Virtual Reality Streamed from Anywhere over IP
TVU to Offer Live, Viewer-Directed Immersive Experience with New TVU VR
TVU Networks, the global technology leader in live IP video solutions, today announced that TVU VR, the first IP- and cellular-based live virtual reality transmission solution, will be shown at NAB 2016 (Booth #SU4405). Although significant research and development has gone into the development of virtual reality capture and display, the lack of a mobile transmitting device supporting virtual reality has impeded its adoption for use in sports, major events and news. TVU VR removes this barrier to larger scale adoption. By incorporating TVU’s Inverse StatMux Plus (IS+) technology, TVU VR can stream live VR content from anywhere, even in a moving environment like a car or train. TVU VR delivers an ultra-high definition, full frame rate and live 360-degree fully immersive video to any VR headset. The TVU VR transmission solution is platform agnostic. It can deliver video to all major VR platforms including Google Cardboard, Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, HTC Vive and others.
