Multi-camera AI-driven automated studio production system creating professional productions without the need for camera operators, technical directors, and directors
vPilot is an automated studio system utilizing the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI). It is a studio set-up that does not require camera operators or an onsite director but is designed to create visually compelling content. Ideal for lower-cost studio productions, vPilot can be utilized for a range of production requirements including studio round table discussions, news delivery, visual radio, speaking events, and corporate communications. vPilot uses the power of AI to direct the cameras and to automatically direct the shots based on who is talking and their importance within the discussion.
Productions can include graphics, dynamic ticker tape, overlays, and video insertions which can be simply inserted by the talent via the easy-to-use vPanel. The director set-up is part of the management platform where it is possible to configure preferences based on the director’s needs.
