Mediapro signs up MediaPower as Italian distributor of AutomaticTV
MediaPower adds intelligent and automated sports production to its product portfolio
September 14, 2018 (IBC, RAI Amsterdam) – Italian media technology solutions provider MediaPower is now an official distributor of Mediapro AutomaticTV in Italy. MediaPower and Mediapro’s partnership will bring automated sports production to customers in Italy.
Designed and developed by Mediapro, AutomaticTV is a low cost fully automated multicamera production system for sports events. It is an intelligent audiovisual production system that does not require a camera operator or director intervention. It employs AI to understand sports action and its rules, and follows the game autonomously using built-in pan, tilt and zoom functionality, and performs camera switches automatically.
AutomaticTV is now in use around the world to film professional and non-professional leagues, training sessions, minority sports, school and college leagues, amateur competitions and other events.
MediaPower CEO Marcello Dellepiane says “advances in artificial intelligence have allowed for autonomous video capture and intelligent content creation. Such technologies help streamline sports production and have the potential to fully automate content creation and distribution. Mediapro’s AutomaticTV is certainly at the forefront of this automation segment, and it is this very reason that we sought to bring AutomaticTV to our valued customers.”About MediaPower
