Eurovision Washington Launches Remote Production Pilot

The solution for remote content production and delivery is with VSN technology.

Eurovision Americas in Washington D.C. is using VSNExplorer and VSNOneTV systems to allow them to carry out news coverage for North America and onward content delivery to their headquarters in Geneva, where it is distributed as part of the Eurovision News Exchange. The Eurovision News Exchange provides content to more than 70 EBU Members, sublicensees and media partners worldwide.

Since the deployment was directly affected by the current situation of confinement and prohibition of work trips and displacements, the entire solution was implemented on a remote basis, including the training services for the tool, the certification phase, and of course, the day-to-day operation by the professional staff.

“We were very pleased with the quick reaction by VSN and their ability to build a system that allowed us to edit remotely in real-time,” says Sarah Lanningham, VP News and Events, Eurovision Americas. “This implementation of the system has allowed the Eurovision Washington and New York offices to maintain their contributions to the Eurovision News Exchange while working safely from home.”

In essence, the system installed for Eurovision Washington allows them to record a series of baseband signals and make a quick selection of video segments from those recordings to edit them in low resolution with VSN's web video editor, Wedit. Later, once these pieces have been validated, they are sent to the headquarters in Geneva.

Each of these operations and workflows are performed simultaneously and in a collaborative and parallel way, allowing users to start selecting segments, editing video and even sending content remotely while the video signals are being ingested with VSNOne TV. Furthermore, all of this is possible without installing any additional application, since the VSNExplorer platform has been developed entirely in HTML5 and can be operated from any web browser.
