(Mountain View, CA--December 10, 2017) Since airing as the first independent radio station in South Korea in 1954, CBS has developed a long-standing reputation of broadcasting high-quality news and entertainment content. Its nationwide radio network has since expanded into 14 branches, and in 2002, the broadcaster began its own Christian television station. Committed to producing high-quality content for all forms of mass communication, earlier this year CBS had been looking for a solution that would enable its news team to transmit reliable HD quality video in the field for publishing on its social media channels and website. The multimedia group found what it was looking for in TVU Networks, and CBS recently purchased the TVU Networks

“We chose TVU Networks because their easy-to-use IP transmitter delivers the best picture quality and most reliable transmission in the industry,” said Sang Hwan Lee, Deputy Manager, Digital Engineering Department, CBS. “CBS prides itself on being the leading broadcaster of Christian content in Korea – from original programs and sermons, to specials and teachings. Our diverse mission programs have fostered the growth of the Korean church. We’re using our new TVU One to reach more people and better connect with our audience. With TVU’s integrated solution, we’re able to capture and transmit video for broadcast and for sharing on social media platforms, including Facebook and YouTube, as well as for live streaming content.”
CBS’ news department is using the TVU One for production of its real-time news show, Daily Nocutnews, from the field. TVU One is helping CBS easily create video content that appeals to its mobile and web viewing audience, in addition to traditional broadcasting viewership. CBS provides programs via cable and satellite to the Korean peninsula and other parts of East Asia.
