<< Background >> Starting with the release of the "Telekin-chan App" introduced in December 2020, TV Kanazawa has been working to create a cross-media viewer experience using the web and apps in addition to conventional terrestrial broadcasting. I did. Especially in the sports field, in June 2021, the "34th National Elementary School Handball Tournament Ishikawa Prefectural Preliminary Round" was delivered, and in July of the same year, the "Ishikawa Youth Soccer Festival 2021 Wakura Youth Soccer Tournament" was delivered LIVE. While working on the above distribution, we focused on the function of the AI sports video solution "STADIUM TUBE" provided by NTT Sportict as a means to enable full-scale sports shooting distribution while further reducing costs. In addition, sympathizing with NTT Sportict's philosophy of "creating smiles and excitement through sports and contributing to the development of local communities," we have signed a joint business agreement and introduced the service. In the future, we will aim to provide content that viewers can enjoy and to develop the region in collaboration with local companies through video distribution of local sports while making the best use of the capabilities of both parties.

(Headquarters: Israel). , Equipped with automatic shooting and editing functions by AI. By installing it in a stadium or other competition facility, the shooting cost can be reduced to about 1/10. It is also possible to automatically insert the advertising video before playing the video. Currently, it supports shooting of 14 sports such as soccer, basketball, rugby, American football, volleyball, etc., and in "auto production" mode, it becomes a natural camera work as if a real cameraman is shooting. .. In addition to normal AI shooting, the entire pitch is also shot in panorama at the same time, so by pouring the shot video directly into the existing coaching system, you can practice the team without the hassle of file conversion. It can be used for feedback and analysis to the selection. [NTT Sportict Company Profile] Company name: NTT Sportict Co., Ltd.
