Smart moves from Tedial lift live production out of lockdown
Tedial has announced that Smartlive, its award-winning automated live sports production solution, has recently incorporated several features that will give broadcasters the edge they need to come back to live programming stronger; ready for remote operations and able to target and win fans with better storytelling.
Tedial has increased fan engagement for broadcasters who can now deliver improved and more vivid graphics resulting from the new integration between Smartlive and Singular.live’s cloud-based technology for live graphic overlays. Graphics can be inserted into the Smartlive auto-generated EDL, reviewed in the player and then burned in when the EDL is flattened.
Tedial says this major development gives broadcasters the capability to enhance storytelling by layering graphics on top of highlights.
In addition, Smartlive can now create transitions between EDL segments, such as fade in/fade out, adding a dynamic element to highlights. In what will prove to be an additional advantage for remote production, the player allows users to review content in different low-res quality with an automatic adaptive bit rate depending on the quality of the connection.
Smartlive is also now connected to a video artificial intelligence (AI) engine to detect replays into the video live stream or file to provide even more advanced storytelling and making highlights more dynamic.
Utilising its AI tools, Smartlive leverages a unique metadata engine to automate clip creation to distribution – including tight integration with social media. It also automates the event metadata ingest process; automatically provides a production environment for the production team; provides multiple, instantaneous live searches to bring historical media and informational archives to live events; and automatically generates highlights and delivers them to digital platforms and social networks as well as traditional broadcast distribution channels as it is directly connected to the production environment.
