Ready. Set. Go Mosaic Multiview.
A viewing experience specifically for you. Interactivity and customization; these are the expectations of sports fans nowadays. Especially with more and more fans being digital natives, a classic directors cut doesn’t cut it anymore. Mosaic Multiview fills exactly this need.
Let’s take a look at a motocross race. Fast paced and action packed, yet fans miss a lot of action that gets excluded from the live broadcast. Why not show all the streams? Mosaic Multiview enables an interface where multiple camera streams are displayed simultaneously. That way each fan creates a viewing experience that fits exactly their needs. They can follow their favorite rider(s), keep an eye on the competition, follow the map and even see live statistics. They can add their own story to that of the director.
Other multiview solutions limit the number of streams that a service provider carries or a fan can display. With Mosaic Multiview, users can pick and choose from a virtually unlimited number of video streams to be shown on one screen. Service providers can offer as many video feeds as they wish.
Having many feeds on one screen typically implies a higher bandwidth. Mosaic Multiview only fetches streams the streams that are visible, in the size and resolution that is displayed on the screen. That makes it fast, responsive, and bandwidth-efficient. And perfect for live content.
Being able to reach millions of users around the globe is not new, but giving every fan the option to completely personalize their own viewing experience is only possible with Mosaic Multiview.
Mosaic Multiview offers many personalization options. fans can show, move, and resize feeds as they wish. They can instantly swap small and large windows. Each user decides what, where and how they want to see content on their device. The smarts are all embedded in our client-side SDK, which determines what feeds to retrieve when and at which resolution, accounting for things like device decoder capacity and available bandwidth. The client determines what buffers to fill and which ABR levels to retrieve, for all of the feeds together, making optimal trade-offs where required.
Other multiview solutions are either customizable or scalable, but never both at the same time. A scalable solution will have limited options. A solution that allows rich interaction requires cloud processing, which is extremely expensive to scale. In our Motocross example, fans are around the world and it is important to make this content personalized and available to millions of fans.
The key to our solution is that a single set of encodes suffices. The solution requires no edge processing or per-user cloud compute. Further, Mosaic Multiview relies on just one single (hardware) video decoder in the user device to decode all incoming streams. Fans can access it via their devices like tablets, phones or smart TVs and therefore reach fans anywhere and on any device they prefer.
Mosaic Multiview brings possibilities to action-packed sports like Motocross in a way that only our solution can offer. Infinite possibilities for a user-friendly and simple-to-use interface. Let fans enjoy motocross races and never have them miss a crash, a jump or the finish line ever again.
