IMZ ACADEMY SESSION 2019: “The future of multi-camera live coverage of orchestral music”

12 April 2019
In the course of Karajan Music Tech Conference, Salzburg/Austria

This IMZ Academy Session evaluates the implications of new technologies and AI for audiovisual music recordings and its impact on audience engagement.

BBC Scotland has been working to live stream performances by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra to a wider audience. David Chalmers, Technology Development Manager, will explain their recent collaboration with CuePilot to use automated PTZ camera control to enable higher production values with more complex and dynamic coverage while keeping costs low with reduced numbers of crew needed. He will also discuss next steps and how this approach could be developed in future.
