Vislink Demonstrates Video Transport, 5G And AI-Assisted Remote Production At IBC 2021

Vislink is exhibiting Video Transport, 5G and AI-Assisted Remote Production technologies at IBC 2021, including products acquired from its takeover of Mobile Viewpoint earlier in 2021.

“IBC is particularly exciting for Vislink this year, as it’s the first time we’re exhibiting our new integrated product range, following the acquisition of Mobile Viewpoint earlier this year,” said Mickey Miller, CEO of Vislink. “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. IBC will see us making our Connected Edge video transport concept a reality, through utilizing ubiquitous IP networks and cloud-scale compute across 5G, WiFi6, Mesh and COFDM-enabled networks to acquire, transport and produce high-quality live video.”

With a focus on production efficiencies and greater creativity for live events, Vislink and Mobile Viewpoint are showing some advances across those three areas of video transport, 5G and remote production. For 5G, Vislink and Mobile Viewpoint will demonstrate live contribution of wireless camera video, claiming this will revolutionize how live TV is made through new capabilities and greater operational flexibility. On the cellular front, the Mobile Viewpoint UltraLink-Air bonded mobile wireless camera will be shown, allowing on-air moments to be captured entirely remotely without additional infrastructure.

Then Vislink’s HCAM wireless camera and matching Quantum receiver enables production teams to bring immersive camera views in 4K and HDR formats with single frame latency, enabling more creative freedom by cutting between wireless and wired cameras readily.

Then for remote production specifically, by putting IP connectivity and IP workflows at the heart of the latest products, Vislink claims that production teams can now take advantage of go-anywhere wireless freedom combined with increased operational efficiencies. For wireless camera systems, Vislink’s Quantum receiver allows producers to utilize the efficiency benefits of decoding and editing captured content at the broadcast centre.

For AI based automated and assisted sports production, the Mobile Viewpoint IQ Sports Producer incorporates AI algorithms that enable cameras to track sporting plays automatically. It can incorporate elements to provide a complete viewer ready program, integrating multiple camera positions with on screen graphics, scoreboards and action replays. For higher-tier events, IQ producer can work alongside expert human event directors to give an assisted production that delivers human creativity combined with efficient automated workflows.
