Managing on-board cameras in realtime
NEP Worldwide has made a bold move by designing an on-board camera that delivers spectacular footage from unexpected angles. But NEP went even further. The camera is smart; it aggregates telemetry data and uses it to detect interesting situations as they occur! It’s the future of broadcasting.
I created a realtime dashboard app that provides insight and manages the on-board cameras during an event. The app runs both in the browser and as a web app on the iPad and enables operators to manage countless on-board cameras without having to look at a 100 screens.
The app consists of a timeline, a video player and a number of data views. It includes a live map with GPS positions of the active cameras. All data updates in realtime. Besides providing an overview, the app is used to control the cameras, ‘offload’ clips and transferring clip selections to playout.
