Mobile Viewpoint, the IP contribution solutions company, showcased its remote production social media integration capabilities at BVE 2017.
Forming the centre piece of its presence was the LinkMatrix, a web-based monitoring and management platform that enables 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 also demonstrated a number of transmitters:
WMT Multicam — a bonded transmitter that encodes four individual streams simultaneously. The transmitter can handle multi-camera shoots without the need for an outside broadcast truck on site.
WMT QuaddroLink — a wireless transmitter that is able to bond six links, four times 4G, Wi-Fi and Ethernet.
WMT PostLink — a real-time platform for the editing of proxy files.
WMT Agile LiveLink H.265 — a wearable transmitter that encodes video at H.265/HEVC and bonds 8 combined 3G/4G connections for high quality live streaming using Mobile Viewpoint 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,” says 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.”
