Live IP video solutions provider, TVU Networks, has announced that visitors to its IBC stand (2.B28) will be able to see a range of live video solutions, including the Artificial Intelligence driven TVU MediaMind Platform, which, the company claims, can potentially change how content can be produced and consumed.
The core of the MediaMind Platform is TVUs metadata-driven workflow engine. Combining real-time speech, object and face recognition with TVUs real-time search engine, users are reportedly able to find the video assets most relevant to the story which they are covering. With its open API, TVU MediaMind Platform is able to integrate with many solutions from its partners, including Panasonic and Associated Press ENPS, the release stated. As part of the newly formed Enabled Media Symposium, TVU has reportedly collaborated with a group of major industry vendors and broadcasters to further the AI application in video production process.
At IBC we will be demonstrating solutions that deliver real ROI benefits today, as well as pointing towards an AI-led future for broadcast acquisition, production and distribution, said Paul Shen, CEO of TVU Networks. We look forward to demonstrating at IBC how our customers can embrace the exciting AI-driven changes that are about to revolutionise the media industry.
Other solutions at the stand include intelligent media acquisition. Products on show include: field transmitter TVU One, which supports HEVC and utilises TVUs patented Inverse IS+ (StatMux Plus) transmission algorithm to transmit HD quality video with half-second latency; the TVU MLink cellular 3G/4G LTE, satellite and microwave live video uplink transmitter; the TVU Router, a portable broadband Internet access point that can provide over 200Mbps of wireless internet connectivity and the TVU Anywhere mobile app, to contribute content using a smartphone with connectivity through bonding Wifi and cellular. These solutions were deployed by broadcasters at this summers major football tournament, as well as enabling VR 360 video coverage of the Congressional Cup yacht race and footage from a motorbike and a taxi for France Televisions coverage of the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wedding.
Other solutions include cloud-based and remote production demonstrations featuring TVU Producer, a cloud-based live event production system that minimises the complexity and cost of covering live video events from any location and the TVU Remote Production System, a solution capable of synchronising up to six HD SDI signals over-the-standard internet without any OB vans, suited for second and third football league tournaments.
The TVU IBC stand will also demonstrate how to stream, distribute and monetise video through its video marketplace, TVU Grid. TVU Grid enables broadcasters to acquire live video from different sources and seamlessly distribute to thousands of Grid-enabled locations, as exemplified by US broadcast networks such as CNN, which uses TVU Grid to make live video accessible to select TV station partners.
