Catalyst projects explore the latest trends at IBC2019


During this edition of IBC, visitors are going to see three unique catalyst projects on the show floor, showcasing open innovation between the telecoms and media industries. We took part in one of those projects: “Mobile news gathering using AI powered compression”

Participation from Al Jazeera, RTÉ, BBC and Associated Press, with project participants AVIWEST, V-Nova & Tech Mahindra will show how 5G, AI, and big data management can solve business and technology challenges and improve the customer experience.

Mobile news gathering using AI powered compression

This Media-Telecoms Catalyst program is working to empower newsrooms and journalists through improved intelligence for the mobile reporter in the field and faster time-to-air for both live and pre-recorded content through leveraging AI, techniques for improved bandwidth utilization, exploiting advanced compression techniques.

Our project aims to improve efficiencies of bandwidth utilization using advanced compression and encoding to empower journalists in the field. It will harness state-of-the-art AI powered video compression, rendering and encoding techniques to potentially accelerate transmission of mobile video time-to-air for both live and pre-recorded news content in the face of fluctuating and often unreliable mobile network coverage.

Using live feeds, to accelerate speed of transmission using image & video compression to achieve:

  • Increased speed of transmission from field to on-air
  • Prove better reliability on-air over unreliable networks
  • Create better images at very low bandwidth

Showcasing everything from AI to 5G, and from news gathering to smart tourism,

make sure you visit the Media-Telecoms Catalyst Zone in Hall 9!
