MOG Technologies and Jornal de Notícias use an innovative app to broadcast a music event
The celebration of the 30th year’s career of the Portuguese singer Tony Carreira was broadcasted with the support of an innovative app developed by MOG Technologies.
The CHIC (Cooperative Holistic View on Internet and Content) is a Portuguese mobilizing project with the goal to develop, test, and demonstrate a wide range of new processes, products, and services in the audiovisual and multimedia sectors. This specific project consists in the creation of an open platform that allows the full interoperability between professional and amateur systems.
The new app allows the capture of live events through a smartphone or professional camera, sending the contents directly to the cloud, where an editor can quickly perform the selection of the multiple feeds in real-time. It ensures the convergence of a set of traditional production techniques into a new web-based paradigm. The project is being developed in partnership with the Portuguese newspaper Jornal de Notícias, the technology center INESC TEC, and the media company OSTV.
The capture, production, management, and distribution of the contents is made entirely through the cloud, allowing the workflow flexibility among professionals and common citizens, who can easily share the recorded contents through their smartphone into a “virtual Production Control Room.”
The first test on the app was made on 25th October, by broadcasting a private concert in the facilities of Jornal de Notícias. The event achieved a total of 50.000 online views.
The main advantages of the new system are the flexibility it guarantees in the contents distribution, the decrease of the needed resources onsite since the feeds can be remotely selected, and the possibility to insert images that are captured by ordinary citizens in the final video to be distributed.
This new app is giving its first steps, and it promises to revolutionize the current paradigm by improving the exchange of contents for final distribution.
