IBC 2018: TVU to debut Producer for multi-camera cloud-based production
TVU Producer (on Stand 2.B28) will, according to the company ‘enable anyone to produce multi-camera video, eliminating the need for expensive hardware and software or prior training’.
Covering a wide range of applications, from live sports events and egames competitions, through to house of worship services and concerts, the simple web-browser interface of TVU Producer enables it to handle any multi-camera production from virtually any location.
Producer supports simultaneously output directly to major social media platforms (Facebook Live, YouTube Live, Periscope, etc.), as well as to virtually any CDN platform. SDI delivery is supported through a TVU transceiver and the solution also offers a multi-channel IP video switcher, graphics and slow motion replay capabilities.
Producer’s patent-pending frame-accurate switch technology overcomes the issue of Internet delay, which can impact processes such as switching, enabling frame accurate previews in the web-based interface. Producer also supports multi-user operation enabling a number of production teams to collaborate.
“The consumer appetite for live content is strong, however, the cost and complexity involved in covering live, multi-camera events is often a barrier for content producers; as a result, multi-camera productions are often confined to large premium events,” said Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks.
“With Producer TVU is providing a flexible, economical and simple to use alternative that can be used by any operator – regardless of training – removing the need for expensive equipment rentals or large headcounts. This is the perfect solution for broadcasters who are under pressure to deliver more and better content with less resources.”
Non-professionals can easily manipulate graphics, scoring and text overlays during production, thanks to the simple WYSIWYG interface design. Producer integrates with existing TVU transmitters, including TVU Anywhere, TVU One and TVU MLink , as well as with any IP video source or any standard IP video stream (HTTP, RTP, RTSP, UDP, etc.).
Up to six live streams an easily be added at any time directly from the Producer interface and any user of an iOS, Android or MacOS device can be added as a live video source within seconds by downloading the TVU Anywhere application.
Producer will be demonstrated at IBC 2018 alongside the innovative Artificial Intelligence (AI) driven TVU MediaMind Platform. At the core of the MediaMind is TVU’s unique metadata-driven workflow engine, which potentially changes how content can be produced and consumed
