Sony Virtual Production Service Launched at Red Bull Event July 24th 2018 - 01:50 PM

Although OTT delivery has created a mature market for on-demand scripted shows that leverages the public internet for distribution, the ever increasing and IP-enabled bandwidth available that uses public wireless networks and the public cloud, is opening a new market for live events.With their global reach, the OTTs have the budget to create polished shows, localised for global distribution.
