The company will have a number of professional camera feeds available from Tokyo including feeds from TVU’s local Japanese partners –showcasing familiar and unique locales around the city, including the Japan National Stadium and Athlete Village. The live feeds will also be available through the Paralympic Games, which follow the Summer Games and end on 5 September.

Looking at uses for the content, TVU said that news outlets can use the fixed shots for bumpers, live introductions, and other interstitial content for broadcast, web content, and social media posts. The feeds will be available through TVU MediaSource, a cloud-based market for real-time access to video content from trusted media organisations. Beyond live camera feeds, TVU will have an inventory of TVU One mobile transmitters for rent in Tokyo during the Summer Games, as well as the TVU Remote Production System (RPS) for multi-camera REMI production.
