Mobile Viewpoint announces virtual event to present autumn tech announcements
Mobile Viewpoint, developer of live streaming technology and artificial intelligence (AI) production platforms for broadcasters, has announced a virtual event as a replacement for its normal presence at IBC in September.
Michel Bais, CEO, explained: “The IBC show in Amsterdam is a fantastic event for meeting new contacts and reaffirming existing relationships within the broadcast industry. We are saddened that the physical event will not be happening this year, so we are organising our own event prior to the IBC virtual event where we are building a physical stand in our office environment and inviting customers, resellers, prospects and anyone interested in our technology to come and talk with us virtually on our stand.”
Despite a remote workforce, Mobile Viewpoint has been busy. When COVID-19 hit it immediately developed TrolleyLive, an all-in-one studio in a box for remote presenters with no technology ability to professionally live stream, either over broadband or over multiple cellular networks, from a home location.
Bais explained further: “The interest in AI as a broadcast production platform has exploded especially as COVID is accelerating new decision making about technologies. The ability to do professional productions that were previously not possible due to cost and resource has allowed AI to effectively replace the need for an onsite camera team. Our IQ-Sports Production platform can live stream sports games and follow the action without the need of a camera-person making grass root sports, training games and youth sports available to everybody. The AI is capable of creating its own automated replays and it’s own post match highlight packages while keeping personnel to a minimum.”
Bais concluded: “The whole virtual event will be live streamed with vPilot which is our other AI driven platform. Designed to use as an automated studio production platform, it can control an array of PTZ cameras without the need of any camera crew or onsite director, allowing professional productions and live streaming for companies without resource or little TV knowledge.”
