China Central Television (CCTV) was established in 1958 as a broadcast and publicity outlet. They operate 50 channels that offer a variety of programming to over one billion viewers in six languages. CCTV is operated by the National Radio and Television Administration, which reports directly to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
When "AI Wang" was unveiled on CCTV 5G New Media, viewers were shocked and in awe by the hyper-realistic AI anchor's uncanny resemblance to his human counterpart, chief political correspondent Anchor Wang Guan. From AI Wang’s natural-sounding voice to his lifelike movements and appearance, the world's first video-realistic AI anchor is a major milestone in the field of media innovation.
CCTV's announcement of AI Wang marks a pivotal moment in the evolution of broadcast news and live video content production. In partnership with DeepBrain AI, they have created an AI-powered end-to-end solution that allows rapid video production for large amounts of information, without the need for filming like traditional media. While AI Wang currently only works in news broadcasting, he demonstrates the potential of AI Human technology to innovate businesses in all sectors, including finance, education, and commerce.
AI Wang is capable of creating content for any major news sector, including macroeconomic reports, industrial policy analyses, and updates on breaking news. CCTV's integration with AI technology, combined with its exclusive 8K and VR immersive viewing technologies already employed for the Winter Olympics, cements its position as a pioneer in media innovation.
