Oct 7, 2013 – (Mount Laurel, NJ) TelVue® Corporation (OTC: TEVE), the innovation leader in Television and Internet Broadcasting for communities, cable operators, and media companies is pleased to provide the Vermont Access Network (VAN) with the powerful cloud-based TelVue Connect platform for the exchange of broadcast-quality programming among VAN member stations.
“The ability to share programs is vital to our stations’ regional identity and local presence. It is also an important tool for statewide communication,” explains Scott Campitelli, Executive Director of Burlington’s RETN, and chair of the Vermont Media Exchange (VMX) collaboration. “VAN stations have been sharing programs the old-fashioned way for years, and created a digital file-sharing system six years ago. Now TelVue Connect streamlines the process by giving us efficient tools like drag-and-drop uploads and automatic transcoding, that save our members a significant amount of time and trouble.”
“We’re seeing a growing interest in collaboration among TV programmers. Not only regionally, but in communities of common interest, like higher education and the sciences,” says TelVue President and CEO Jesse Lerman. “For these groups, TelVue has developed a suite of cloud-based services to open up new possibilities for pooling and distributing content from many contributors. It’s easier for the stations, and better for the viewers.”
Members of the Vermont Access Network will now be able to share programs through the TelVue Connect Media Exchange, which automatically creates broadcastable video files. The Vermont Access Network is a professional membership organization established to promote an interest in, and the effective operation and advancement of, its 26 member Public, Educational, and Government access organizations. VAN’s mission is to further access organization goals, foster free speech, enable interconnectivity and facilitate community discourse through the use of current cable and Internet technologies.
