Mobile Viewpoint places remote production solutions in spotlight at BVE2017
Forming the centre piece of its presence is 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. With its inherent functionality and flexibility, LinkMatrix provides a powerful solution to cost-effective and speedy news gathering.
The company will also be showcasing a number of transmitters:
- WMT Multicam — a bonded transmitter that encodes four individual streams simultaneously. This transmitter brings additional cost savings and flexibility to remote production as it 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. Featuring an HDMI interface, 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. Ideal 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 8 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,” 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. . This is something we will be demonstrating at the event, highlighting the speed and agility that our portfolio of products brings to the area of live remote production, in combination with sharing the live content on multiple social media channels at the same time.”
Mobile Viewpoint will be demonstrating its products on stand G27 at BVE from 28 February to 02 March, 2017.
