Tedial, a MAM technology solutions specialist, will be unveiling new features to its sports and live events solution, SMARTLIVE, at IBC 2019.
SMARTLIVE SPORT Configuration
New for IBC 2019, SMARTLIVE will feature MULTI SPORT configurations, which allow users to generate automatic highlights or auto-clipping for any genre of sport quickly and easily. Visitors will see a dramatic increase in the number of highlights that SMARTLIVE can generate automatically due to the significant expansion of sports genres. This is a key addition to the list of the solution’s fast-growing capabilities. Totally agnostic to all data feeds, Tedial’s metadata engine makes it simple to add new configurations to the system as and when required.
In addition, SMARTLIVE and Tedial’s Evolution MAM now includes a new module that allows all types of content to be published to any social network in just one click. Enabled by the system’s capability to create social publishing campaigns directly inside the MAM, content includes clips, highlights or historical media etc.
Tedial will also highlight its technology partnership with Speechmatics. By integrating Speechmatics’ Automated Speech Recognition (ASR) technology with SMARTLIVE, operators can search for comments made during a sporting match or live event, automatically create file locators, import a file or drop it into a watch folder, and manually generate the speech-to-text from the commentary track.
Providing operators with faster access to content, Tedial will showcase its new SMARTLIVE bundled solution that can be deployed on top of the customer’s existing production environment. This is key as it provides sports broadcasters with an efficient solution that can be up and running quickly.Tedial will highlight the financial and operational benefits of operating SMARTLIVE both on premises and in the cloud.
Esther Mesas, CSO/CMO, Tedial, explained, “These latest additions enable production teams to increase their efficiency and output without needing to scale up, leaving them more time for creativity, such as personalised stories that enhance the overall viewer experience. SMARTLIVE maximises efficiency, output and profitability for broadcasters of sports and live events. It also enables overheads to be reduced by cutting costs without having to compromise on the quality of their solution. We look forward to demonstrating these new features and benefits at IBC 2019.”
