Clone.tv is an automated video platform for live entertainment

Producing broadcast quality has never been this smart, affordable, or ridiculously simple.

Solving the production chokepoint...

Managing, producing, shooting and streaming video online is a costly endeavor. Everyday thousands of venues are eager to record and share their content with the world but don't because the technology and manpower required is too cost prohibitive.

We've fixed that.

Introducing

Studio

We didn’t invent the PTZ, we just make it DANCE

Today in the world of broadcasting pan-tilt-zoom cameras are used only for shot variety, not motion video. You cannot pan-tilt-and zoom all at the same time, the movements are robotic, and pan-tilt speed is not linear to the rate of zoom.

Our algorithms synchronize pan-tilt-zoom speeds across all three planes of motion. For the first time a PTZ can deliver smooth, non- robotic video for on-air motion shots. The closest to the smooth motion of a manned camera operator on the market—by far.

The mover software is smart. It learns your favorite shots, logs the time, assigns a weight to each movement, and then runs the show on Autopilot for hands free broadcasting.

Features

We put a 6 man camera crew in a box.

Studio is a brand new solution for producing broadcast quality, multi-angle streaming video.

Best of all, you can do all of this without leaving your couch.

The opportunity is way more than a production technology

Clone.tv built a standalone video delivery network not bound by the constraints of be-all streaming platforms. Social engagement tools include personalized landing pages, embeddable players, counters, show listings, user chat, payment processing, and soon trackID to identify song tracks over live video.
