of our teams around the
world Mobile Viewpoint
maintained
a
solid
position in the market
of IP contribution for live
broadcast.
We see a major shift from
regular broadcast to "online
first" in live newsgathering.
This results in a substantial
growth in order intake of our
online streaming product
portfolio.

"Also, the demand for solutions for
low-cost remote production solutions
in live sports, events and news
is growing rapidly. Our
Multicam product line
of backpacks and rack
encoders with multiple
camera inputs have been
especially designed to meet
the needs for cost friendly,
flexible productions from, for
instance, a small SNG truck."
Bais said that Mobile Viewpoint
would be launching further
innovative solutions.
Growing customer base

Aussie Parliament Elects Actus Digital
A
system from Actus Digital is helping
to handle the media management
and distribution requirements of the
Australian parliament.
The Australian parliament required
that parliament members, journalists
and parliamentary assistants be able
to monitor sessions of parliament,
search and create clips.
As a part of the project, the
Australian parliament implemented
a system that will record sessions of
parliament using SDI HD cameras.
Techtel Australia was selected as the
system integrator, while Actus Digital's

system was chosen as the platform to
record video streams; allow users to
monitor content; and create, edit and
distribute video clips.
In order to allow the journalists
to monitor and create clips from
remote, and yet to have the clips in
the highest HD quality, Actus records
the video streams in both low and high
resolution.
The Actus Clip Factory editing tool
allows the viewers to edit the videos,
add metadata and create clips, all by
working on the low resolution video
files.

This is done from any standard
workstation, without any client
installation.
Once the clips are ready for
distribution, the Actus system creates
a high resolution version. The clips
are distributed directly from Actus
platform to OTT, web portals, social
media or any other platform.
