TVU Networks Partners with Largest Network of Videographers, Stringr

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – June 19, 2019 – TVU
Networks, the global technology and innovation leader
in live IP solutions, today announced its partnership with Stringr, the
premium video marketplace for custom, high-quality, video content. Stringr’s network of professional and
amateur videographers is now available through the TVU Global Grid, the Cloud
platform for content owners to contribute and pull video, enabling assets to be
shared and sold on a global scale. The relationship
leverages Stringr’s robust network of videographers and the established global
presence of the TVU Grid distribution platform. 

TVU Grid is an
switching, routing and distribution system. With TVU Grid, stations can
route live video streams over IP networks to one or more Grid-enabled news
stations anywhere in the world with sub-second latency. Using
its TVU Global Grid platform, users can
exchange, share, and sell video content. Users can view public video sources
that are available around the world, and request to take the stream and make it
available for their own viewing audience.  For
a demo of TVU Grid, watch here.

Stringr allows users to access its content library and request
custom footage from over 90,000 videographers around the world. In addition,
broadcasters, publishers and brands in the U.S. and U.K. can access Stringr’s
livestreaming function, which launched earlier this year. Users will now be able to put
out requests through TVU Grid, and as a videographer in Stringr’s network
begins sharing live footage, it will be transmitted directly to TVU Grid.

TVU Grid is used by thousands of newsrooms around the world,” said Brian
McNeill, COO and Co-Founder of Stringr. “Integrating Stringr will give TVU
users all the benefits of our platform, without having to flip between the two,
therefore saving time, cutting unnecessary costs and maintaining content

Stringr/TVU Grid workflow is seamless. A joint customer requests video
from Stringr. When one of Stringr’s 90,000+ videographers goes live with video
matching the request, the feed is sent through Stringr, straight into TVU Grid.
From there, the joint customer can take the feed just as they would for any
other TVU content.

“By incorporating Stringr’s network through
TVU Grid, our customers have the best of both worlds – high-quality, low
latency live video distributed through TVU Grid with the extensive Stringr
videographer marketplace,” said TVU Networks’ CEO Paul Shen. “The combination
enables our customers to deliver breaking news faster than ever before and
opens up monetization opportunities for their own content. It makes the live
production process much simpler with a streamlined workflow while providing
greater flexibility and more options for dynamic content.”

A mutual customer brought the two companies in touch
with one another, and the opportunity to partner grew from that initial connection.
Both TVU Networks and Stringr executives saw the value in a solution combining
TVU Grid’s access to global live coverage with Stringr’s ability to source live
footage. “The combination of these two products allows our partners to get more
live coverage, quickly, cost effectively, and within the same workflow they’ve
always used,” added McNeill.

TVU Networks and Stringr are currently working with a
major cable network and plan to expand to other partners shortly.
