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.

Remote Production is one of the drivers for video and audio over IP distribution. The flexibility IP offers delivers greater scalability and flexibility and provides more options for solving complex workflows. However, this is not just confined to existing working practices, IP empowers broadcasters to rethink and optimize working practices to deliver unprecedented efficiencies.

Moving production crews back to a central studio helps broadcasters make better use of their resources to deliver more programming for ever demanding audiences giving them greater choice. However, this model of operation creates many new challenges. Although they’ve already been solved by vendors, understanding the intricacies of these solutions is key for any broadcaster looking to adopt the Remote Production model.

Remote Production isn’t just about moving crews to a centralized location but instead is about giving broadcasters much more choice. The flexibility this system offers is unprecedented and many factors influence the best operational solution.

This Core Insight discusses the many solutions available and their respective advantages, and looks at how broadcasters can leverage the flexibility to deliver the best system possible to facilitate live events from all over the world.
