TelVue® Corporation (PINKSHEETS: TEVE), the innovation leader in Television and Internet Broadcasting for communities, cable operators, and media companies is pleased to be providing the High-definition Broadcast technology for Philadelphia's Public Access TV station, PhillyCam.
"Our producers have been creating video content in high-definition for some time, and with TelVue's broadcast system, viewers will be able to appreciate the HD quality of these programs," explains Gretjen Clausing, PhillyCam's Executive Director. PhillyCam is currently available as a Standard-definition channel on Comcast and Verizon, and will be simulcast in HD -- live and on-demand -- over the Internet. "We wanted to upgrade to HD in a way that gave us flexibility in the future," Clausing adds, "TelVue's HyperCaster system gives us modern workflows, enhanced on-air graphics capabilities, and can easily be scaled up when we expand our channel offerings."
PhillyCam's HD channel is powered by the latest generation TelVue HyperCaster® Broadcast server, which combines the efficiency of all-digital and Internet Protocol (IP) workflows with the convenience of a browser-based content management and scheduling system. Through integration with the TelVue CloudCast� streaming service, PhillyCam can reach multiple viewing screens, including smartphones, tablets, and over-the-top Internet TV boxes like Roku®. With the TelVue Connect� content aggregation service, PhillyCam can more easily acquire programming from producers, members, and the community.
"I admire PhillyCam's amazing growth in the five years since its launch," says Jesse Lerman, TelVue's President and CEO. "We take pride in helping community media operations keep up with the rapid changes in broadcast technology. Upgrading their channels to high-definition with cloud-enhanced workflow is a big part of that."
