The end-to-end video production and contribution solution will integrate
BCE’s StudioTalk and MX1’s OU Flex solution, with video production
carried out via a camera on automated mode, distributed reliably via
satellite, and simultaneously fed into external video feeds over IP

During the annual SES
Industry Days event
, SES and BCE will use the integrated solution to
film subject experts during one-on-one interviews. The content will be
pushed onto BCE’s SNG van onsite equipped with an OU Flex modem before
it is distributed through a high-performance link with guaranteed
quality of service from SES’ satellite. The content will then be
streamed onto BCE’s Online Video Platform for live and VOD distribution
on websites and social networks.

OU Flex provides a dependable video distribution and bi-directional IP
connectivity solution for broadcasters, live event producers, event
organisers, and remote operators. The solution works even when
terrestrial and mobile networks are congested, and in remote areas, to
ensure that OTT streaming and social media updates can be executed from
the field, while also distributing video feeds to TVs globally.

StudioTalk is an all-in-one production solution, allowing a single
operator to produce live multi-camera shows via a touchscreen and remote
that can be operated in manual or automated mode.

“StudioTalk has traditionally been used to produce sports events, such
as the Montreux Volley Masters and for visual radio for stations such as
RTL Radio, FunRadio and BNJ,” Olivier Waty, Technology and Project
Director at BCE. “We are excited to work with our long-time partner SES
to further develop this product. By combining both of our flagship
products we can open up new production and distribution possibilities to
the market, regardless of where events are taking place.”

“MX1’s OU Flex is unique in that it enables event organisers to
distribute content from anywhere in the world in a short turnaround
time,” said Steve Bisenius, Vice President, Regional Sales Engineering
at SES Video. “BCE’s StudioTalk solution complements OU Flex by
simplifying video production, a benefit that will be welcomed by event
organisers around the world.”
