Ruptly has announced a strategic partnership with TVU Networks, allowing media partners to receive Ruptly’s live transmissions over the internet at full broadcast quality using the TVU Grid platform.

Platform users will be able to choose their level of commitment, purchasing live content on a one-off or more regular basis.

Ruptly CTO Ahmet Cakan said: “We have always pushed to democratise video content, so we’re thrilled to be breaking down another barrier by improving access to live broadcast, using TVU’s unparalleled technology.

“Given the current global situation, there has never been a greater need for fast, broadcast-quality news footage from the centre of events – especially now many reporters and crews are unable to travel. This partnership will help us to ensure that in future, people in even the most remote areas will still be able to share their stories with the world.”

TVU Networks global marketing director Yoni Tayar added: “We understand how critical the speed and reliability of our equipment needs to be to distribute breaking news 24/7. With that in mind, we are excited that a news agency as innovative as Ruptly chose TVU Grid to better serve their affiliates globally while offering them access to cutting-edge live feed distribution technology.”
