A search engine shows the term, “Video IP” has more than 66 million hits. While the phrase may be popular, only a small percentage of those sites are able to add to the professional technical knowledge base needed to build and manage an IP-centric video production or broadcast facility
You can learn more about professional IP video in a recent tutorial from consultant and The Broadcast Bridge technology editor, Tony Orme in his article, “A Brief History of IP - Putting It All Together.”
Live sporting events can create huge audiences. In addition, they come with a price tag to match.
Fortunately, new technology can reduce origination costs. Read how automated sports cameras can be leveraged to bring second and third-tier sports to viewers in the article, “Can Automated Production Replace the Sports Camera?”
Constructing reliable and flexible IP networks requires an understanding of infrastructure components and the interoperability of systems that run on them. This is especially the case when the technology is melded with fast-paced, dynamically changing video workflows.
However, creating an IP network is only part of making a system work reliably. Interoperability plays a huge role in integration, and anybody installing a system should consider this from the outset. Dedicated vendor-specific solutions can solve many of these problems and continue to build on the major benefits of scalability and redundancy in IP systems. See, “A Brief History of IP - Putting It All Together.”
A single robotic camera coupled with sophisticated AI software can capture live sports--all without a camera person.
Automated sports production could be the next big thing in sports broadcasting. Combined with OTT distribution, it could open the floodgates to around 200 million sporting events that are not broadcast because of limited resources or high costs. However, to hit mainstream adoption, automated production technology needs to meet the quality thresholds viewers expect.
This article reviews multiple types of automatic capture techniques, and the benefits of each. Examine the discussed technology to see how it may solve your need to produce and carry more sports, but without the traditional high cost. Read, “Can Automated Production Replace the Sports Camera?”
