Automated AI workflow platform delivers next generation metadata driven acquisition, production and distribution for video content
BARCELONA – July 17, 2018 – TVU Networks, the global technology and innovation leader in live IP video solutions, today announced that visitors to its IBC stand (2.B28) will be able to see a sweep of innovative live video solutions, including the Artificial Intelligence driven TVU MediaMind Platform, which potentially changes how content can be produced and consumed.
The core of the MediaMind Platform is TVU’s unique metadata-driven workflow engine. Combining real-time speech, object and face recognition with TVU’s real-time search engine, users are 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. As part of the newly formed Enabled Media Symposium, TVU has 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 revolutionize the media industry.”
The TVU IBC 2018 booth is designed to showcase TVU’s industry leading capabilities in the following areas:
● Get: Demonstrating intelligent media acquisition. Products on show include: the industry leading 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; 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 secure, reliable, high-speed wireless Internet connectivity anywhere and the TVU Anywhere mobile app, to contribute content using a smartphone with turbo-boosted connectivity through bonding Wifi and cellular, enabling broadcasters to work anywhere without sacrificing the benefits of the studio. These solutions were deployed by hundreds of broadcasters at this summer’s’ 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. TVU CAS, as part of the TVU MediaMind platform, automates the entire acquisition process. 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.
● Make: Solutions include cloud-based and remote production demonstrations featuring TVU Producer, a cloud-based live event production system that minimizes the complexity and cost of covering live video events from any location and the TVU Remote Production System, best cost-efficient solution on the market capable of synchronizing up to 6 HD SDI signals over the standard internet without any OB vans, ideal for second and third football leagues tournaments.
● Share: This section of the TVU IBC stand shows how to stream, distribute and monetize video through its innovative video marketplace, TVU Grid, that enables broadcasters to acquire live video from different sources and seamlessly distribute it to thousand Grid-enabled locations, as exemplified by major US broadcast networks such as CNN, which uses TVU Grid to make live video accessible to selected TV station partners.
