EVS’ Overcam wins IABM BaM award
Wed 18, 09 2019
New AI-driven solution automates key camera positions to deliver additional sports coverage at lower costs
Liège, Belgium, September 15, 2019
Overcam is a software solution driven by machine learning that enables autonomous control of robotic cameras in live sports. Powered by VIA Mind, EVS’ AI engine that integrates machine learning methods, the new solution uses “smart tracking” to analyse key parameters of the game, such as players and ball positions, steering the cameras to frame the scene. Due to the system’s real time processing, it integrates with existing multicamera live production workflows where the robotic cameras can be mixed with manually operated cameras to enhance storytelling capabilities.
Overcam has been developed to enable content owners to create more immersive productions by capturing the action from more camera angles more economically. The debut iteration of the solution is intended for live football, particularly smaller leagues where production budgets are tighter, but the system can ultimately be used for other sports such as basketball and hockey.
“There’ a lot of excitement within the industry around Overcam and its ability to cost-effectively enhance the output of any live production, so we’re delighted that our latest innovation has been recognized by the IABM and its illustrious panel of expert judges,” said Johan Vounckx, SVP, Innovation & Technology at EVS.
The BaM Awards are independent and run by the broadcast industry’s only international trade association, the IABM. They are judged by a panel of more than 40 non-affiliated, subject experts who look for innovations that deliver real business and creative benefits.
EVS is demonstrating the award-winning Overcam system on its booth (8.B90) throughout IBC2019. For more information on its complete range of live video technology for broadcast and new media productions, please visit www.evs.com.
