Sony gets intelligent about AI
Sony has ventured into the world of AI with their edge analytics solution, the REA-C1000. Designed to allow users to create video content in real-time without the need for specialist training, this clever black box is bring AI to any education space.
It was standing room only at their stand at ISE, when Sony unveiled their first foray into artificial intelligence (AI) based edge analytics solution, the REA-C1000.
The REA-C1000 uses AI-based video analytics technology to analyse the input it received from connected cameras and automatically extracts the object in focus to combine it with other images in real time. The technology, using motion/face detection and colour/shape recogition effectively makes the REA-C1000 the brain of any connected camera or AV setup.
This, Sony says, allows education, government and corporate organisation cost-effective professional content that keeps audiences engaged.
The AI is also able to distinguish between the speaker and the presentation so that no matter where the speaker is standing, the handwriting extraction feature ensures that any words and diagrams written on a board or screen remain in full view to the audience – via AR (augmented reality).
Even if the speaker is standing directly in front of the board, their ideas, thinking process and even their animated presentation is all accessible to the audience. It’s also easy for remote viewers and those playing back the presentation at a later date to become immersed in the content too, as the presenter is overlaid and the content is never compromised.
