Vislink’s AI-powered Stellar Cam cost-effective in sports production

Vislink, a global technology leader in the capture, delivery and management of high quality, live video and associated data in media and entertainment, law enforcement and defence markets, has released the Mobile Viewpoint Stellar Cam, a camera designed for artificial intelligence (AI)-powered live sports production. 

Stellar Cam is a fresh addition to the range of cameras offered by Vislink to fulfil the need for automatic coverage of demanding sports. It is exceptionally durable and weather-proofed, and features ultra-high resolution, high frame rates and zooming capabilities to capture action as it happens on the field of play.

The Stellar Cam was among the all-IP wireless streaming products designed for use in remote and live sports productions, showcased by Vislink at the just-concluded NCAA 2022 Convention Trade Show.

Vislink demonstrated its solutions in bonded cellular, 5G, AI-driven automation and wireless camera systems at the trade show.

“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.”

The IQ Sports Producer was designed to produce live streams of popular sports such as football, rugby, basketball, hockey and handball, and has recently been deployed to cover sports such as horse jumping and velodrome cycling, with support for more sports being added. 

A single panoramic camera captures the whole pitch, arena or track in extremely high resolution. AI is used to create a virtual camera that tracks the action of the ball and the players, creating a software cut-out of the action from the panoramic view. 

IQ Sports Producer can zoom, provide highlights, graphics and scoreboards, replicating an actual professional production,” said Miller.

“In addition, it is compatible with popular performance analytics tools. By capturing and recording the entire panorama, no action is ever missed, and new content streams can be created.”
