Growth in AI results in new global sales manager for Mobile Viewpoint
Mobile Viewpoint has announced the appointment of Mark Andrews as its new global sales manager. Andrews was previously the head of Broadcast and Security at Soliton Systems. With a background in selling outside broadcast and live video streaming solutions, he has a reputation in both sales and marketing for helping technology companies wanting to scale up.
As a Dutch company with many global broadcasting customers, Mobile Viewpoint made its reputation designing and selling mobile transmitters for use in a range of live streaming scenarios including newsgathering, live sports production and secure law enforcement solutions. They were the first company in 2018 to demonstrate live streaming over 5G in conjunction with BT Sport and EE.
Andrews explains his motivation for joining Mobile Viewpoint: “What strikes me most is the pioneering attitude. Mobile Viewpoint is well respected in the industry for building quality H.265 encoders that can use multiple cellular networks for live streaming in the OB world, but more recently they have delivered on AI products for automated live production for football, basketball and other sports clubs who are looking to automate the recording of games and training sessions where they have limited resource and capital.”
The new AI products include the IQ Sports Producer that can provide a live stream for a sports match without the need for a production team, and the VPilot system that provides studio automation for live news without the need of a cameraman or director.
