StreamViral has partnered with AI technology manufacturers that enable sports clubs and leagues to effortlessly create TV productions for live streaming without the need for camera operators. This innovative solution is particularly beneficial for smaller clubs and leagues operating on a limited budget, as it allows them to achieve professional camera productions at a fraction of the cost typically associated with traditional production companies.
There are various AI technology solutions available for sports production, and StreamViral can assist you in selecting the most suitable one for your needs. Whether you prefer a mobile set-up or a more sophisticated permanent installation, AI can seamlessly replace the role of a camera operator, facilitating zoom and multi-camera productions. The AI system incorporates advanced ball and people tracking functionality, resulting in captivating sports productions at a significantly reduced cost compared to on-site camera teams for live action. Moreover, these productions can be streamed directly to your StreamViral OTT platform, ensuring seamless live coverage.
There are various camera setups available, depending on the manufacturer. These setups range from a cost-effective AI robot on a mobile stand that can control a standard camcorder fixed to the robot, to a more permanent solution utilizing a panoramic camera with an on-site or cloud-based AI engine.
In the case of a panoramic camera, a high-resolution 16K camera captures and records the entire pitch, while the AI system generates a real-time software cut-out of the panoramic image. This cut-out produces a dynamic and zoomed-in view of the action, simulating the perspective of a camera operator. Additionally, there is an option to include side cameras that the AI can control for a multi-camera production. Typically, the panoramic camera setup is more permanent in nature. With AI cameras in place, professional broadcast productions can be achieved without the need for an on-site production team, resulting in significant cost savings.
Our AI camera setups support a wide range of sports, including soccer, baseball, ice hockey, floorball, rugby, basketball, football, futsal, netball, as well as various equestrian activities such as horse show-jumping, dressage, and horse racing. Furthermore, we provide coverage for greyhound racing and velodrome cycling, ensuring that your sporting events are fully supported by our AI technology.
