WBMA-TV Powers HD Channel With TelVue HD/SD Simulcast System

MOUNT LAUREL, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- 12/03/12 -- TelVue® Corporation (OTCQB: TEVE), the innovation leader in Television and Internet Broadcasting for communities, cable operators, and media companies has launched the latest HD/SD Simulcast System in conjunction with WBMA-TV, the government access TV station for the town of Bloomfield, NJ.

WBMA-TV becomes a pioneer in the world of Public, Educational, and Government (PEG) broadcasting by making its channel available 24x7 to viewers in full HD quality video on the Internet while maintaining its standard definition (SD) simulcast channel for cable distribution. By implementing TelVue's HD/SD Simulcast, WBMA-TV can now be viewed in HD on any device that can access an Internet stream.

"So many PEG stations are already shooting and editing in HD and it's been a point of frustration for the stations and their viewers that these channels are not available in HD. TelVue's HD/SD Simulcast System finally gives PEG stations a cost-effective way to show off their channels in High-Definition," explains Jesse Lerman, President and CEO of TelVue Corporation. "Broadband Internet adoption has reached the point where every community TV station can launch a 24x7 HD channel using the Internet, adding even more value to the service they provide."

Bob Duthaler, Executive Director of WBMA-TV, says, "A lot of people are impressed with the upgrade and love the HD viewing. We already shoot all of our programming in HD. It's nice to see the product out there in the format it was meant to be viewed in."

The HD/SD Simulcast System makes WBMA-TV's live, linear, and VOD signals available in HD on all devices, ranging from the large-screen TV to PCs, tablets, and smartphones. The system combines the best features of both IP and SDI workflows, and supports standard MPEG-2 and modern H.264 codecs. Broadcast to multiple devices is made possible through the use of TelVue CloudCast, a cloud-hosted broadcast service for Internet video.

WBMA-TV programming covers all aspects of community life: from government, to sports, cultural events, and news.

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
