Portable and fixed encoding device specialist Mobile Viewpoint is showing its suite of AI-driven live production and delivery products at this year’s IBC with the aim of demonstrating how they enable content contribution from live capture through to delivery.

Mobile Viewpoint believes that AI is now proving its value in broadcasting with practical implementations that tackle challenges facing the industry, including improving the efficiency of production and reducing costs.

The company’s three AI-driven products, NewsPilot, IQ Sports Producer and HyperSense, are designed to reduce the cost and complexity of live news and sports content production by removing the need for costly camera crews, production facilities and distribution platforms.

They will all be on show on the company’s stand, alongside TerraLink-4C Multicam, a rack mount bonded transmitter that enables multi-camera shoots without the need of an OB van on site, and LinkMatrix, an online dashboard.

Mobile Viewpoint is also showcasing one of its newest products, 5GLink, which it claims to be “the first 5G-ready” bonding device. Specifically aimed at camera crews and journalists, and designed to be compatible with any smartphone, 5GLink enables the fast transmission of live content. The Hall 14 stand is hosting demonstrations of how 5GLink connects to an SDI camera and enables the transmission of content to live newsfeeds or the studio.

Michel Bais, CEO at Mobile Viewpoint, said: “Traditional live broadcast set-ups are expensive, resource-intensive and not conducive to the viewer’s expectations of instant news or sports coverage. Broadcasters and content owners must adapt to new ways of producing and delivering content if they are to meet consumers’ increasing demands for live content, online.”
