Vislink and Mobile Viewpoint will be exhibiting in person at IBC 2021, which will take place this year December 3-6 in RAI Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Their onsite teams will be in two locations on the show floor: Hall 1, stand #A63 and Hall 5, stand #H49. Show attendees can view the IBC floorplan and map the Vislink booth at this link.
“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.”
Michel Bais, Managing Director, Mobile Viewpoint, said: “At IBC this year we will show how Vislink is meeting the exciting opportunities provided by 5G and other new networks, along with machine learning, that will combine to revolutionize how video is produced and transported. A particular show highlight will be the demonstrations of our vPilot and IQ Sports Producer that show that AI-assisted acquisition is truly ready for prime time.”
With a focus on delivering new production efficiencies and enabling greater creativity for live events that makes an impact on the viewing public, Vislink and Mobile Viewpoint will be showcasing a number of significant innovations at this year’s IBC. Visitors will be able to experience the following key advances:
Vislink and Mobile Viewpoint have been pioneering the use of 5G networks for live contribution of wireless camera video. They will have solution experts at the showcase available to discuss the current state of 5G technologies and how these new platforms will evolve over the coming months and years. These developments in content delivery will revolutionize how live TV is made through new capabilities and greater operational flexibility.
Hall 1, stand #A63
Supporting “On The Pitch” teams, 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 full creative freedom through cutting between wireless and wired cameras at will.
Enabling “Sideline Reporting,” the Mobile Viewpoint UltraLink-Air bonded mobile wireless camera solution allows camera teams to be on-air in moments and operate entirely remotely without additional infrastructure to capture key fan moments, live news and to enhance engagement through experts at key events.
Remote Production: By putting IP connectivity and IP workflows at the heart of the latest products from Vislink and Mobile Viewpoint, production teams can now take advantage of go-anywhere wireless freedom combined with increased operational efficiencies that come from Remote Production techniques. For wireless camera systems, Vislink’s Quantum receiver allows producers to utilize the efficiency benefits of decoding and editing captured content at the broadcast center.
Hall 5, stand #H49
Empowering Automated Studio Production: Mobile Viewpoint’s vPilot automated studio system utilizes AI technology to automate in-studio camera direction – autonomously following the speakers and switching camera views between speakers to create engaging content.
