​Tedial’s Automated Live Sport Solution

Tedial has given more details of SMARTLIVE, its automated live sport solution which links Artificial Intelligence tools to a metadata engine.

The integration brings back office and archives closer to the live production supporting an increased number of highlights, during or after an event. In turn, this allows a specific story to be delivered to a targeted audience via multiple platforms including Social Media, “increasing the potential for significant growth in fan engagement,” says makers Tedial.

“SMARTLIVE simplifies event preparation by capturing team, event and statistical data and automatically building an event inside its metadata engine,” the firm explains. “Simultaneously, it automatically creates the corresponding log sheets, player grids and the video feed capture schedule for the event. All these preparations are linked and organized in collections, so an entire season of sports events can be prepared automatically in advance.”

SMARTLIVE’s metadata engine can be configured to create an automatic metadata ingest from any third party data provider.

Video and audio recognition can be called on to generate locator data and annotate live media proxies across multiple camera or venue inputs. All event data from the production is ingested in its native format, automatically augmenting the proxy logs, and the system can be configured to automatically create clips based on actions, keywords or logged occurrences. Once created, these highlights can be automatically published to social media, or passed to workflows that enhance the director’s program and the broadcast. Automatic highlights can be of a single event, a particular star player, or an entire season.

“SMARTLIVE dramatically increases the utility of the MAM GUI interface, bringing the MAM much closer to LIVE production than ever before,” says Tedial. “It is compatible with PAM providers such as SAM or EVS which makes it the perfect tool to orchestrate all business processes on top of an existing PAM, including the use of historical archives in live production. It can then manage the media life-cycle or media movements between different sites.”
