South Carolina ETV utilizes TVU Grid service to streamline emergency communications for S.C. broadcasters

New Service will help expedite the dissemination of vital information to South Carolinians

South Carolina ETV (SCETV) today announced that, in addition to its existing live stream, the network will be utilizing the TVU Grid service to offer live video feeds to the broadcast community from Gov. Henry McMaster’s COVID-19-related press briefings.

Part of SCETV’s continued response to the coronavirus pandemic, the utilization of this service will expedite the dissemination of vital information to South Carolinians. The network is able to provide this resource to television stations statewide and beyond because TVU Networks is allowing access to the TVU Grid service at no cost through the end of April.

The TVU Grid feeds will be distributed directly from the South Carolina Emergency Management Division, allowing stations to immediately take the briefing live for public viewing.

For technical support, broadcasters can contact SCETV Engineering’s Brian Jamison at 803-440-2045.
