Alkmaar, 29th of January 2013.- After intensive testing and trials with several broadcasters Mobile Viewpoint’s launched its newsgathering WMT Live iPhone Application. It is available for free in the Appstore now. The WMT Live turns your iPhone in a live broadcast camera capable of sending HD quality video to Mobile Viewpoints cloud server, which can deliver it to any broadcaster as an SDI or streaming feed.
Last week Apple approved Mobile Viewpoints WMT Live application turning an iPhone into a live camera. The WMT live app is part of the WMT family of products using bonded networks to send high quality video from any place or on the move. WMT Live is designed for both the broadcast and surveillance industry allowing consumers and professionals to upload, publish and share live and pre-recorded video content via iPhone, from anywhere to any screen around the world. Consumers can transmit to websites, TV shows, or stay in contact with friends in a community. It also allows broadcasters, internet sites, and mobile network operators to directly manage live and on demand content via state-of-the-art editorial management tools in the WMT video manager portal. The IFB implementation allows real time communication from the backend platform with field reporter. The app can be downloaded for free in the appstore.
