Social media integration from Mobile Viewpoint23 February 2017
Mobile Viewpoint will be showcasing its remote production social media integration at this year’s BVE.
Forming the centrepiece of its presence is the LinkMatrix, a web-based monitoring and management platform designed to enable users to manage all devices in the field. It also includes a module that can send live feeds directly to Facebook and other social media networks. The platform can publish feeds from connected Link units and other encoders, using cloud-based encoding to ensure compliance between source and streaming destination.
The company will also be showcasing a number of transmitters:
– WMT Multicam: a bonded transmitter that encodes four individual streams simultaneously. This transmitter is designed to bring additional cost savings and flexibility to remote production as it can handle multi-camera shoots without the need for an OB truck on site.
– WMT QuaddroLink: a wireless transmitter that is able to bond six links, four times 4G, Wi-Fi and Ethernet. Featuring an HDMI interface, the company says that it is ideal for use with action and sport cameras, as well similar devices used to stream live on social media.
– WMT PostLink: a real-time platform for the editing of proxy files. Designed for breaking news applications on location, the platform can also be used to wirelessly transfer files.
– WMT Agile LiveLink H.265: a wearable transmitter that encodes video at H.265/HEVC and bonds eight combined 3G/4G connections for high quality live streaming using Mobile Viewpoint award winning bonding technology.
“In today’s broadcast environment there is a continued drive for increased efficiencies, while being as cost-effective as possible. In the live broadcast space, this is especially important, as is flexibility and reliability,” said Michel Bais, Mobile Viewpoint CEO.
“Our Link portfolio has been designed specifically to bring these benefits to broadcasters in the field, providing them with the full functionality they need to go out, get the story and send it quickly and effectively to social media first and then on to the news.”
