Intinor Brings German Literature Prize Direkt To The People

In 2020, the awarding of the Ingeborg Bachmann Prize, one of Germany’s most prestigious awards for literature, occurred at home.

Intinor recently announced that the Festival of German-Language Literature was streamed live using Intinor’s solution for remote production in an unusual way. Intinor is Sweden’s leading developer of products and solutions for high-quality video over public internet.

The annual festival normally takes place in Klagenfurt, Austria, and culminates in the awarding of the Ingeborg Bachmann Prize, one of Germany’s most prestigious awards for literature. However, this year the prize-giving took place under different circumstances, i.e., from home.

Coordinated and streamed by Austria-based Remotion Media Production and Services, Intinor Direkt link encoders were safely established in the homes of 14 authors and jury members scattered throughout Austria, Germany and Switzerland to produce seven live channels routed through to Remotion’s Klagenfurt master control room where a Direkt router rack was placed.

To allow the most robust transmission, Remotion used Intinor’s own protocol “Bifrost Reliable Transport” (BRT™). This protocol provides very strong protection against lost or late packets while simultaneously adding redundancy with network bonding over LAN & 4G.

The program feed was then “pulled back” to each location for confidence monitoring purposes. Intinor’s solution for 4-wire talkback was used to provide a professional ‘mix-minus audio’.

Intinor Sales Manager, Europe, Martin Weber, said, “We would like to thank Remotion for their expertise and trust in Intinor to produce this important live streaming event which was flawlessly broadcast on 3sat in Germany, ORF in Austria, and SRF in Switzerland as well as multiple web-streaming platforms."
