“With live events coming back to the forefront and becoming commonplace again, this year’s Best of Show Awards were expected to be more competitive than ever — and they didn’t disappoint,” said Tom Butts, Content Director for TV Tech.
“The amount of entries matched the positive attendance at this year’s show and selecting the winners proved to be challenging. Those who have won can know that their solution was truly outstanding and impressed our judges, as all entries received were of a high level.”
“We’re delighted that this cloud-native live scheduling and playout breakthrough has been recognized by the TV Tech judging panel,” said Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks. “TVU Channel was built hand in hand with the world’s biggest broadcasters to drive content acquisition, indexing, programming, and proliferation. Reliability and stability are at its core.”

Building and managing channels is as easy to learn as a calendar. The browser-based interface can be accessed through any laptop or smart device from anywhere in the world with Internet access. Users don’t need to be located at a physical studio. In fact, TVU Channel can serve as a backup Master Control in the event a physical studio cannot be accessed due to forces beyond your control like weather and viruses.
