Vislink and Mobile Viewpoint are exhibiting their newly integrated product range for the first time following Vislink’s acquisition of Mobile Viewpoint earlier in 2021.
Mickey Miller, CEO, Vislink, said: “IBC is particularly exciting for Vislink this year… This acquisition means that Vislink can now ensure our customers can acquire and deliver video however they need to, over any public or private network.”
Miller: ‘IBC will see us making our Connected Edge video transport concept a reality’
“IBC will see us making our Connected Edge video transport concept a reality, through utilising ubiquitous IP networks and cloud-scale compute across 5G, WiFi6, Mesh and COFDM-enabled networks to acquire, transport and produce high-quality live video,” he added.
The two companies will be making use of a joint presence in Halls 1 and 5 to showcase how they use 5G networks for live contribution of wireless camera video.
In Hall 5, solution experts will demonstrate how the Mobile Viewpoint vPilot automated studio system uses AI technology to automate in-studio camera direction – autonomously following the speakers and switching camera views between speakers to create engaging content.
In Hall 1, the showcase will demonstrate how Vislink’s HCAM wireless camera and matching Quantum receiver enables ‘pitch-based’ production teams to bring immersive camera views in 4K and HDR formats with single frame latency, cutting between wireless and wired cameras at will. Meanwhile enabling ‘sideline reporting’, the Mobile Viewpoint UltraLink-Air bonded mobile wireless camera solution allows camera teams to be on-air in moments and operate entirely remotely without additional infrastructure.
Also on show, Mobile Viewpoint’s IQ Sports Producer offers an AI-driven production system that enables cameras to automatically track sporting plays. It will be joined by further demonstrations of Vislink and Mobile Viewpoint remote production workflow solutions.
Michel Bais, managing director, Mobile Viewpoint, said: “At IBC this year we will show how Vislink is meeting the exciting opportunities provided by 5G and other new networks, along with machine learning, that will combine to revolutionise how video is produced and transported. A particular show highlight will be the demonstrations of our vPilot and IQ Sports Producer that show that AI-assisted acquisition is truly ready for prime time.”
