Remote video production via IP
Remote video production is now officially labelled as an industry trend. This post provides a quick overview of these texts as well as some comments with regards to our own remote video production solution. Gregory explains: in cases where production does not have to be in the proximity of the action, such as sports, music, theatre or conferences, video production can totally be made remotely - as long as there’s enough connectivity and bandwidth. Managing risksObvious concerns for remote production are connectivity and bandwidth. One of the teams, who have been testing our solution,-the production arm of Philadelphia Eagles, an NFL football team,-told us that they rent a dedicated 1 GB connection to guarantee reliability of connection, which is otherwise difficult to attain at a game with 70,000 spectators.
If connectivity costs are lower than the cost of taking a production team - then keep the team at home!Unlike competition, our approach does not require that a dedicated line is set up-since we can stream up to 50 Mbps of low-latency video over the public Internet. The playgroundAlana Foster, a journalist at IBC365, mentions a number of companies who, as the text suggests, already offer products for the remote production scenario: Lawo, Net Insight and Nevion. We see the future of many small productions doing simple streaming to their CDN of choice, expanding their production quality and distribution to a higher level. Another thought is that remote production is driven by the transition to IP. Seems to be entirely true since most of the people we’ve spoken to are not just aware, they are active adopters of NDI®, NewTek’s video-over-IP protocol.
Foster also mentions that 4K and 8K can be drivers for remote production. The cost of upgrading OB vans to handle higher resolutions can be very expensive, and at the same time IP technology is eminently suited to the transport of 4K/UHD signals, which is helping to justify the cost of a move to IP-based remote production. Yes: it is time to sell your OB truck and give remote production a try.
