AZilPix, a start-up from imec and Hasselt University, has developed a game changing solution that makes capturing video content at live events considerably easier and much more cost-effective.
AZilPix’s ‘Studio.One’ can be operated by a single person. It includes stand-alone, ultra-high-resolution cameras equipped with wide-angle lenses to literally cover all possible viewing angles during live events (from concerts and music festivals to sports events and even instruction classes at surgical operation theatres). In combination with its unique software suite, Studio.One makes it possible to capture and edit content with just one operator – bringing efficient video capturing within the reach of organizations of all sizes. Last week, the solution won the IABM Game Changer Award in the ‘Acquisition & Production’ category during the NAB Show in Las Vegas
AZilPix is a start-up from imec and Hasselt University, it builds on 15 years of research in video capturing and advanced pixel processing to fundamentally change how video content is captured and disseminated – thereby finding the ideal trade-off between quality, cost and ease-of-use.
“The basic premise of Studio.One is pretty simple: an array of high resolution cameras with wide angle lenses register an event from all relevant angles – without the need for human operators. Features such as camera pan, tilt and zoom are altered live or during post-production. As such, it becomes possible to capture and edit complex events with just a single operator. We are the only ones who offer this today,” says Philippe Bekaert (imec - Hasselt University), one of the co-founders of AZilPix.
