Tedial to bring innovation in sports production to NAB 2018

Tedial, an independent MAM technology solutions specialist, will introduce Smart LIVE at NAB 2018, a comprehensive live event support tool in sports production. Smart LIVE leverages Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools to increase the number of highlights created automatically, thus reducing production costs and boosting revenues for production companies.
Before any action happens, Smart LIVE ingests a live data feed and automatically creates an event inside its metadata engine. Simultaneously it automatically creates the corresponding log sheets, the player grids and a schedule of the event. All these preparations are linked and organised by collections, so an entire season of sports events can be prepared automatically in advance.
During events, live data is ingested, and the system can be configured to automatically create clips based on actions, keywords or logged occurrences. Smart LIVE automatically pushes content to AI engines; video and audio recognition can be leveraged to generate additional locator data and annotate the media proxies. And the system can automatically publish clips or push content to social media platforms.
Smart LIVE is agnostic to any sports or data providers. Its metadata engine can be configured to create an automatic metadata ingest process addressing the complex sport workflows. It is completely compatible with PAM providers such as SAM or EVS, and can manage the media life-cycle or media movements between different sites, due to Tedial’s AST storage management system, or simply manage historical sport archives.
At NAB 2018 Tedial will demonstrate Smart LIVE’s automatic highlight creation feature, its integration with AI engines, speech to text integration annotating incoming live media, and the automated publish feature with TELLYO, provider of a cloud-based video production, editing, streaming and distribution platform, and a Tedial technology partner.
Jerome Wauthoz, VP of Products for Tedial commented, “We couldn’t be more excited to bring broadcasters, rights holders, clubs, federations, or any organisation involved in live production this tool that will transform the way they automate clips and deliver content across numerous platforms, including social media. By tightly integrating with AI tools, Smart LIVE can generate an increased number of highlights during or after an event, and deliver to a very targeted audience increasing the potential for significant growth in fan engagement.”
