TVU Networks and Unilumin Group Form Strategic Partnership


At NAB 2016, TVU and Unilumin will demonstrate solutions for global customers in news and sports broadcasting, public safety and special events

TVU Networks and Unilumin Group have announced the formation of a strategic partnership between the companies, aimed at better serving their joint customers in broadcasting and other industries around the globe. TVU Networks, of Mountain View CA, offers a complete suite of solutions to capture, transmit and distribute live video from anywhere over IP to web and broadcast audiences. Shenzhen, China-based Unilumin Group is a major manufacturer of large 4K LED displays featured in broadcast studios and major outdoor events worldwide. Visitors to the 2016 NAB convention, held in Las Vegas from April 16-21, can experience TVU's suite of IP solutions and Unilumin's 110 inch/2.8 meter LED display monitor in the TVU booth at the Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall #SU4405.

The companies are each technology and market leaders in their respective industries. TVU's family of IP transmission solutions gives organisations a powerful tool to distribute live HD video content to broadcast, online and mobile platforms. TVU products have delivered professional-quality live HD footage at important events from global sporting events, to coverage of presidential elections, papal visits and natural disasters as well as breaking news as it happens. Unilumin has rapidly become a global name for its high pixel density bezel-free LED video wall system, which allows the creation of seamless display wall of virtually any size. Its displays are widely used for news broadcasts, public safety, sports stadiums and special events. They support multiple signal inputs, deliver outstanding visual performance, and are environmentally friendly with low power consumption. Together, the companies anticipate the strategic partnership will help both companies better serve existing customers as well as expand into new markets and new distribution channels.

Paul Shen, CEO of TVU Networks, said, "The alliance is an especially nice fit since our companies share news broadcasters as a core customer for our products. This joint effort will allow us to offer solution packages that incorporate both TVU and Unilumin products tailored for each vertical market. It's an opportunity for us to combine resources and provide a turnkey solution. The fact that we can now offer a source of very large LED displays with Unilumin's manufacturing capacity and quality will be a real added benefit to our customers."


Unilumin CEO Tiger Lin added, "We look forward to a fruitful partnership with TVU Networks. We're excited to contribute our expertise, product offerings and market knowledge, and to work strategically with TVU as well. Both of our companies furnish extensive global experience in our product areas. And together, our firms are now positioned to utilise our combined strengths while we leverage the differences, to help us create more value for our clients. "
