Mobile Viewpoint will bring its upgraded artificial intelligence (AI)-driven live production solutions to the 2019 NAB Show.
IQ Sports Producer is a live production and streaming solution designed for smaller and lower league sports clubs and teams that receive little regular TV coverage. A fixed-position 32MP 180º camera, capable of cover and entire field of play, in combination with Mobile Viewpoint’s AI engine, is able to track players, balls and other objects during a live game, in order to provide the position of play during a match or game. The tool has recently been upgraded with extra AI-enabled 4K cameras to cover specific areas closer to the basket or goal. These devices are IP by default, but are now also available with SDI-inputs, supporting multiple 4K cameras at 60 FPS.
The second highlight of Mobile Viewpoint at NAB 2019 is VPilot, an automated live production for broadcasting, event organizers, journalist and bloggers solution. It uses a combination of static and PTZ cameras and the Automated Studio control box of the company, which adds its Autopointer and Virtual Director software.
Thanks to the AI, the system now supports the automatic insertion of name tabs based on image recognition and voice recognition to provide an automatic display of overlays. In addition, Mobile Viewpoint has added a CasparCG compliant interface, which makes possible for customers to ingest overlays and ticket tapes from its existing production environment, and RAVENNA, AES67 and Dante audio input interoperability.
