Cloud-based production studio technology make.tv are partnering with portable live video-over-cellular solutions LiveU in a partnership that will see the integration of the two technologies to provide end users with direct access to LiveU feeds as part of the make.tv production technology.
make.tv offers cloud-based, collaborative and interactive live broadcasting solutions using a web-based interface. Its versatile production software allows users to create multi-camera live streams adding pre-recorded media and even audience cameras. The Studio is the heart of the make.tv experience and is a powerful application where users’ live productions come together from a variety of sources, including live streams, uploaded content, social media applications.
LiveU’s live HD video feeds will be transmitted directly to the make.tv Studio where the stream can then be mixed with other incoming live streams and enriched with built-in designs, effects, interactive functionalities and uploaded media. The final live stream (or “line cut”) can be broadcast live to any RTMP-capable streaming server or destination, for example YouTube Live, Ustream or CDNs, including Akamai or Limelight.
“For mobile and remote production, cloud-based solutions, using a well-designed and integrated GUI, provide a new level of flexibility for innovative users,” says Ronen Artman, VP of Marketing, LiveU. “By fully integrating our technology, make.TV will be able to provide, cost-effectively, an even greater experience for viewers, bringing the world closer to home. Not only does LiveU’s technology – be that backpack, belt-clip, smartphone-app or software-based – provide tremendous mobility and flexibility but the studio can now be operated from a laptop at any location with an Internet connection.”
