TVU Networks Uses AI to Create MediaMind Platform

TVU’s MediaMind potentially changes how content can be produced and consumed. As part of the newly formed Enabled Media Symposium, TVU has collaborated with vendors and broadcasters to further AI applications in video production.

The core of the Platform is TVU’s metadata-driven workflow engine. Combining real-time speech, object and face recognition, TVU explains that users are able to find the video assets most relevant to the story which they are covering. It has an open API and therefore hooked into partners, including Panasonic and Associated Press ENPS.

“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.

Other products on show include: field transmitter TVU One, which supports HEVC and utilizes TVU’s patented Inverse IS+ (StatMux Plus) transmission algorithm to transmit HD quality video with half-second latency and a MLink cellular 3G/4G LTE, satellite and microwave live video uplink transmitter. These solutions were deployed by hundreds of broadcasters at during the FIFA World Cup, says TVU and for coverage of the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wedding.

“TVU CAS, as part of the TVU MediaMind platform, automates the entire acquisition process,” says Shen. “It integrates with all the discrete workflow and functional modules, to create a seamless and automated acquisition process. This ensures all the video assets are produced timely and made available to rest of the production process automatically.”

TVU Producer is a cloud-based live event production system while a Remote Production System is capable of synchronizing up to six HD SDI signals over the internet without any OB vans, “ideal for second and third football leagues tournaments.”

Another section of the TVU IBC stand shows how to stream, distribute and monetize video through its video marketplace, TVU Grid. CNN uses TVU Grid to make live video accessible to selected TV station partners.
