Understand how to choose the optimal remote production strategy for your workflow. Latency, circuit data capacity, and quality of service all influence the best strategy decisions when figuring out where to install cameras, production switchers, microphones and sound consoles.
The global lockdowns have come just too soon for 5G mobile services to help mitigate disruption to production and content creation.
The first set of quarterly financial results during the lockdown has given the clearest indication yet of what impact the crisis is having on sectors and individual companies in the video services and broadcasting sector, with a stark divide between winners and losers, but with all players affected in some way.
These days TV broadcasters are working feverishly to work out new remote production workflows for stay-at-home talent, but for radio broadcasters it’s been business as usual. In fact, many engineers have found that the remote control features they already use for troubleshooting are highly extensible and can be slightly modified for use by production staff.
Many businesses and individuals have had to adapt rapidly to remote online working and in many cases adopted innovative approaches to distant collaboration.
Recent international events have overtaken normality causing us to take an even closer look at how we make television. Physical isolation is greatly accelerating our interest in Remote Production, REMI and At-Home working, and this is more important now than it ever has been.
Computer systems continue to dominate the landscape for broadcast innovation and the introduction of microservices is having a major impact on the way we think about software. This not only delivers improved productivity through more efficient workflow solutions for broadcasters, but also helps vendors to work more effectively to further improve the broadcaster experience.
In an era of rising programming costs, media companies are looking for ways to reduce production budgets, through both live remote control operations leveraging the Cloud and the public Internet as well as the use of less expensive consumer-level technology.
Live broadcasts are seen as nirvana in terms of attracting an audience. Presenting a live event, especially sports, in real-time and high quality, draws audiences like no other content. Yet, successfully originating these broadcasts is often both expensive and complex. And unfortunately, most broadcasters no longer have the resources, either financial or technical, to stage an entire production crew and on-site production truck at remote venues.
