TelVue Launches Tool for Programming Expansion via VOD Services
By Rahul Arora, TMCnet Contributor
TelVue Corporation, the innovation leader in television and Internet broadcasting for communities, cable operators, and media companies, recently announced that it has come up with a new tool that will allow cable and Telco operators to expand their programming via Internet for video-on-demand (VOD) services.
TelVue Connect is a powerful, cloud-based broadcast CMS that streamlines multi-user contribution, transcoding, content management and scheduling operated from any web-browser. TelVue Connect makes managing local origination channels, leased access channels, PEG channels, shared channels, any channel with multiple external contributors, and complete edge broadcast networks a breeze. TelVue Connect can deliver content and scheduling data to the broadcast server in user’s facility, or deliver channels natively from the cloud including Internet and OTT streaming channels.
"We heard from operators that they want access to new local content that the community likes, and we heard from both producers and operators that it really should be a lot easier to get programming from the community to the most important programming outlets in the home. We think both sides now have what they needed," said Jesse Lerman, president and CEO of TelVue.
TelVue Connect eliminates the need for dedicated ingest and encoding equipment at the facility for contributors. The integrated cloud transcoding functionality makes sure all content a user receives is the proper format for broadcast or streaming. TelVue Connect distributes the series management and scheduling workload saving the staff additional time, without taking away programming oversight.
TelVue Corporation recently announced that its PEG.TV Community TV on Roku channel has grown to include more than 100 public access, educational and government (PEG) channels. PEG.TV offers live and on-demand community programming from hyperlocal TV stations across the country. The Roku Player is today's most popular Internet-connected Over-the-Top (OTT) TV device offering access to services such as Netflix(TM), HuluPlus(TM) and PEG.TV(TM) to over 2.5 million Roku users in the U.S. and overseas.
