Devices, GoPros and Professional Cameras with New Cloud-Based Video
Streaming Platform

Visit Make.tv at NAB for One-On-One Live Demos

LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AndroidMake.tv,
the world’s leading #cloud-based #video production platform, today
announced the commercial availability of its Live Video Cloud platform,
which enables #broadcasters and #publishers to acquire, manage and
distribute video content submitted by professionals and amateurs alike.
Leading content producers MTV/Viacom, LinkedIn and the Swiss
Broadcasting Corp are among the early adopters of the platform. At this
year’s NAB
Show
, which takes place April 16-21, 2016 at the Las Vegas
Convention Center, Make.tv will be demonstrating technology integrations
with key partners, which include: Arvato Systems (Booth SU5515, South
Upper Hall), Avid Everywhere (Booth SU902, South Upper Hall) and NewTek
(Booth SL5817, South Lower Hall).

Using the free #Streamtag app for iOS and Android smartphones and
tablets, news sources and user-groups from anywhere in the world can
shoot footage from breaking news scenes, festivals, events or live TV
programs, and stream it live to newsrooms and other production
environments where it can be instantly edited and posted into a
production segment in an efficient and manageable way. Producers can
also choose to acquire feeds from different sources like Periscope or
Facebook Live and stream them to Live Video Cloud using a specific
hashtag.

The following components of the Live Video Cloud platform, which can be
integrated within the customer’s broadcast environment, will be
showcased at NAB:

  • Make.tv Acquire is a workflow plugin that enables 1-to-1
    communication between producer and contributor. It allows producers to
    monitor live or uploaded video streams, communicate via intercom or
    chat with the contributor, route streams to live outputs, browse by
    production, contributor or location and receive upload notifications.
  • Make.tv Selector is a video router within the cloud that also
    acts as a sub-switch, enabling broadcasters to ingest, curate and
    route large amounts of live footage through the system, on a scale
    that’s never been done before. Broadcasters can browse through
    unlimited input/output streams, communicate via chat or intercom with
    contributors, route videos into newsrooms or live production
    environments and push outputs to video platforms or content delivery
    networks (CDN) directly.
  • #Streamtag mobile app converts any smartphone or tablet into a
    fully integrated system camera and enables users to configure third
    party devices. The app features high quality live streaming, camera
    mode with tally light, chat & integrated intercom, file management &
    upload queue, external device configuration via ingest URLs and
    optional multi-angle in-app viewing of video contributions.

“We wanted to give producers the most comprehensive view possible of all
user-generated content coming in through our app so that they can choose
the best footage possible for live segments,” said Andreas Jacobi, CEO,
Make.tv. “Whether our customers are broadcasting live TV news segments
or capturing audience participation for a reality program, our Live
Video Cloud platform enables broadcasters to acquire relevant content
fast and more cost efficiently from anybody, anywhere.”
