TelVue, a specialist in Television and Internet Broadcasting for communities, cable operators, and media companies has expanded the versatility of its recently-unveiled TelVue Connect Media Exchange by giving broadcasters the option of setting up their own private video-sharing groups.
Members of Private Groups within the TelVue Connect Media Exchange are able to upload, preview, and download each other’s programming within a secure and authenticated environment. This is becoming an increasingly popular form of informal networking among local broadcasters who share a common geography, like the Jersey Access Group (JAG), a collaboration of New Jersey PEG stations.
“The technology of sharing programmes among JAG members has just gotten much easier,” says JAG President Bob Duthaler. “TelVue Connect Media Exchange multiplies our programming resources to include not only content produced by neighboring stations, but by other programme syndicators as well. Since TelVue Connect accepts virtually any format and automatically converts to whatever format each station requires for re-broadcast, it takes the guesswork and hassle out of programme sharing. If the source is HD and you need SD, you get it that way, without having to think about it.”
