Vislink introduces Mobile Viewpoint Stellar Cam for advanced AI-powered live sports production
Vislink has released the Mobile Viewpoint Stellar Cam, a camera designed for artificial intelligence (AI)-powered live sports production. Stellar Cam is the latest addition to the range of cameras offered by Vislink to fulfil the need for automatic coverage of demanding sports. It is said to be durable and weatherproofed, and features ultra-high resolution, high frame rates and zooming capabilities to capture action as it happens on the field of play.
“This announcement affirms our leadership position in incorporating AI-powered technology to facilitate more cost-effective news and sports productions,” said Mickey Miller, CEO of Vislink. “Stellar Cam represents the latest in a long line of AI solutions brought to market by our Mobile Viewpoint brand. It is a key component of IQ Sports Producer, our platform for capturing live sporting events without the need for onsite staff. IQ Sports Producer is perfect for mid and lower-tier games and matches, and enables over-the-top media providers, media right holders and production companies to capture sporting events on a limited budget.”
Michel Bais, managing director of Mobile Viewpoint, said: “At the beginning of our AI journey, we offered an off-the-shelf 4x 4K panoramic surveillance camera to our customers. Though it was ideal for web streaming, many of our higher-end broadcast customers wanted a camera with a higher frame rate, adjustable lenses and something that did not rely on an optical zoom. At that time, a broadcast panoramic camera did not exist, we so we invented our own, now known as the XCAM. The Stellar Cam is an evolution of this technology that delivers a price point close to the original surveillance camera, but with many more features and enhanced quality, including support for 50/60 frames per second, making it ideal for live event broadcast.”
