TVU Networks is adding new functionality to its TVU Anywhere solution that enables it to support Centre Stage, a new iPad Pro (M1 Chip models) feature that automates subject tracking.
According to the company, this kind of technology means productions no longer require a camera operator, complicated workflows, or purpose-built broadcast hardware.
The integration means that TVU Anywhere uses artificial intelligence to track a subject as they move around a shot. The camera can automatically zoom out to include a possible interviewee in shot and then zoom back in again once the interview is complete.
Centre Stage is fully Integrated with TVU Anywhere via API, so no external controls are required.
“TVU is focused on empowering our customers to take advantage of all the increasing power of phones and tablets, using these commonly available tools to deliver the highest-grade solutions for everyone from large broadcasters to home content creators,” said Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks.
“As consumer technology reduces the gap of quality and functionality between prosumer and professional workflows, our goal is to quickly integrate every meaningful functionality into our solutions that utilise these devices.”
