January 21, 2022
Vislink, a global technology playr in the capture, delivery and management of high quality, live video and associated data in the media & entertainment, law enforcement and defense markets, has announced the release of the Mobile Viewpoint Stellar Cam, a camera designed for artificial intelligence (AI)-powered live sports production. Stellar Cam is a new addition to the range of cameras offered by Vislink to fulfil the need for automatic coverage of demanding sports. It is exceptionally durable and weatherproofed, and features ultra-high resolution, high frame rates and zooming capabilities to capture action as it happens on the field of play.
Stellar Cam will be among the all-IP wireless streaming products designed for use in remote and live sports productions showcased by Vislink at the NCAA 2022 Convention Trade Show Jan. 20-21, where it will be a prime sponsor and exhibitor in booth #309. Vislink will be demonstrating its solutions in bonded cellular, 5G, AI-driven automation and wireless camera systems.
“This announcement affirms our leadership position in incorporating AI-powered technology to facilitate more cost-effective news and sports productions,” said Mickey Miller, CEO of Vislink. “Stellar Cam represents the latest in a long line of AI solutions brought to market by our Mobile Viewpoint brand. It is a key component of IQ Sports Producer, our platform for capturing live sporting events without the need for onsite staff. IQ Sports Producer is perfect for mid and lower-tier games and matches, and enables over-the-top (OTT) media providers, media right holders and production companies to capture sporting events on a limited budget.”
Michel Bais, Managing Director of Mobile Viewpoint, explains, “At the beginning of our AI journey, we offered an off-the-shelf 4x 4K panoramic surveillance camera to our customers. Though it was ideal for web streaming, many of our higher-end broadcast customers wanted a camera with a higher frame rate, adjustable lenses, and something that did not rely on an optical zoom. At that time, a broadcast panoramic camera did not exist, we so we invented our own, now known as the XCAM. The Stellar Cam is an evolution of this technology that delivers a price point close to the original surveillance camera, but with many more features and enhanced quality including support for 50/60 frames per second, making it absolutely ideal for live event broadcast.”
