PSSI & Nextologies Partner For SpaceX Launch Show

On Saturday at 3:22 p.m. EDT SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft with NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley on board successfully launched into orbit from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

The talent and hosts for the live pre-show “Space Launch Live (part 2): America Returns to Space” all appeared remotely from their homes and the live show was broadcast on Discovery and online at the SpaceX website.

PSSI’s CK35 mobile teleports were staged at a production studio in Burbank and during the live broadcasts they ingested over 30 discrete feeds via satellite, fiber and IP for remote production and re-distribution of the show around the world.

PSSI’s CK35 mobile teleports were staged at the production studio in Burbank all week long and during the live broadcasts they ingested over 30 discrete feeds via satellite, fiber and IP for remote production and re-distribution of the show around the world.

Nextologies' NXT-4 and NXT-LITE technology and gear was deployed to the show producers in Burbank and talent at their homes and in ready mode since the first launch window opened earlier this week. The producers on standby utilized the NXT-4 gear to remotely control the cameras. Once the video feeds were received from PSSI, the production company worked their magic and Nextologies handed off the video to the producers and talent at their respective locations.

Nextologies’ CEO Sasha Zivanovic stated, “COVID-19 puts a new spin on the way live television is being produced due to social distancing and precautionary measures. The live show on Wednesday served as a dress rehearsal; but it took an epic amount of communication to stay in place and be able regroup so quickly. I am thrilled with the PSSI and Nextologies’ teams’ ability to regroup at a moment’s notice. Today’s show celebrated the SpaceX launch, and is a terrific win for the world, the astronauts and for our teams on the ground who were all ready at a moment’s notice.”
