Remote production comes of age

Transforming content production and delivery

Remote production was conceived to drive efficiencies into live production. The events of 2020 ignited demand for technologies that enabled no-compromise workflows with talent and crew located anywhere.

The global pandemic accelerated the migration towards distributed productions, which depend on connected and elastic technological solutions. Agile and streamlined remote production workflows are now the norm.

Our goal remains the same. We will provide the same resources and same experience as a client would normally have on-site but with the all the advantages of a remote workflow.

The benefits are profound. Production equipment can be used more efficiently from a central facility instead of being tied up during transport between venues. It enables the production of Tier 1 events with reduced crew at the venue saving time and money on accommodation and travel while keeping everyone safe.

This has the added imperative of reducing the carbon impact of production.

As competition for eyeballs increases, broadcasters and media providers need to do more with less resources.

Streamline the cost of live production

Since live event production is resource intensive broadcasters seek a solution that will eliminate bottlenecks in their workflows whilst increasing output. Remote production, also called Remote Integrated Model (REMI production) or at-home production is the answer.

Live production can be done at a distance from the actual event by sending raw camera feeds, audio, and equipment control over commonly available IP infrastructure to a central studio facility or a distributed one.

Remote production means that the scarce and highly specialized production staff and talent can be used centrally or from home, with potential to cover multiple events per day.

The approach gives broadcasters the ability to shift CAPex to OPex using infrastructure-as-a-service to pay for just the resources they need for as long as they need.

The move to REMI production empowers broadcasters and enterprise corporates or digital players like eSports to scale, dramatically, and at will. Deliver more content and richer personalised experiences to engage with viewers across all platforms from social to OTT to TV. Simultaneously conduct parallel live productions and output more content to maximize the value of rights.

Net Insight and at-home production

Net Insight uniquely offers broadcasters and production houses an end-to-end solution for remote (REMI, at-home) and distributed production. We support fully distributed production workflows over IP allowing you to retain control and manageability even with geographically diverse teams.

Net Insight delivers a seamlessly integrated IP solution which frees production teams from limitations of location to focus on the business of delivering outstanding content. Essentially what we are able to do with Nimbra is to provide the production team with the same facilities they would have on site uncompromised by being accessed at-home.

Nimbra enables you to send diverse feeds with confidence. Technologies employing low-latency compression techniques, such as JPEG2000, can maintain video quality and optimum control over equipment over long distances.

With Net Insight you can simulate any distance within the kit without actually running signals down lengths of cable. Nimbra can verify signals working over tens or hundreds of kilometers away enabling producers to rigorously test workflows ahead of time.

REMI production is evolving from centralized to a virtualized and decentralized gallery accessed in the cloud. Critical partnerships with vendors are essential to develop features that enable solutions that support this evolution.  

Together, we will create both broader and more targeted content for your consumers as live video moves into the cloud.

Also known as REMI (Remote Integration Model) or at-home production, this is an outside broadcast workflow in which sources (audio, video, data) are captured live on location and returned to a central facility for production.

Reduced cost linked to staff travel and equipment, enhanced sustainability, increased utilization of resources including the ability to handle multiple events at once, and the flexibility to produce, distribute, and monetize more video content from anywhere in the world.
