Alkmaar, Netherlands — 20 October, 2022 –As part of their showcase at Sportel 2022 in Monaco, Vislink (Nasdaq: VISL) has announced the launch of a newly integrated partnership with sports OTT provider StreamViral.
Vislink, a leading developer of broadcast live streaming production technology, is offering an OTT playout and distribution platform to complement their Artificial Intelligence (AI) cameras that can create compelling sports productions without the need for live camera operators.
Michel Bais, Chief Product Officer at Vislink, explains, “Our AI cameras allow mid-tier and lower league sports clubs to create engaging live video productions at a fraction of the cost of utilizing fully-manned camera teams. StreamViral targets the exact same customer base and complements our technology by allowing clubs to live stream to their fans at an extremely affordable price point, and the OTT solution gives them a platform for the clubs to distribute and monetize content.”
AI solutions create the content, and the OTT platform distributes and plays out the content to any internet-enabled device, including PC’s, Smart TVs, or smartphone apps. It allows clubs to monetize their content to a global audience and increase their fan engagement and branding.
Mark Andrews, Chief Commercial Officer at StreamViral, said, “We are delighted with our new partnership with Vislink. We have often felt the missing piece in our offering was the actual camera production side, especially for the mid-to-low tier sports clubs who often comment that hiring a multi-camera production team is unaffordable. The IQ-SP solutions from Vislink fulfil this need and will mutually benefit our companies by giving our customers a fully integrated end-to-end solution.”
As part of their IQ-SP AI offerings, Vislink has developed the XCAM and Stellar Cam, which are unique broadcast-quality panoramic cameras offering extreme resolution with a high 60fps frame rate. Their AI complements the StreamViral OTT broadcast offering that can be easily customized to allow a range of subscriptions, Video-On-Demand (VOD), sponsored promotions, fixtures, and a historical archive for the club, league, or federation. The system not only provides a visually appealing front end for consuming sports, but also comes complete with a feature-rich administrative back end for clubs to be able to understand their users and enable a more targeted approach to their marketing and promotional activities for increased fan engagement.
Vislink will be demonstrating their AI products and the StreamViral-powered OTT platform at Sportel in Monaco between 24-26 October, 2022.
