The Top 4 Challenges for Production Companies Now and Beyond


Covid has acted as the accelerator to an existing movement in the media market — one towards cloud technology, virtualization and standardized IP being the foundations of production, broadcast, and the formation of new customer-centric services. 

Production companies top 4 challenges:

  • Remote production 

Remote production has become a key priority for production companies everywhere, thanks to Covid. 

  •  Evolving from production to service providing 

Customers’ demands and behaviors are changing. Viewers want to see different camera angles, see footage in real-time, and to be in the center of a production. In effect, they want to be their own directors.  

  • Shifting team sizes and locations 

Smaller, decentralized teams need access to the types of collaborative tools that enable better communication, and the ability to produce and transport content quickly and cost effectively.  

  • New revenue streams 

This opens up tremendous opportunities to increase the scope of productions, particularly in the field of live events. As well as traditional Tier 1 events like the Olympics, there is increasing opportunity to cover more smaller scale Tier 2 events. This localist approach can increase your revenue streams.

 Cost effectiveness is a growing requirement across production companies. Remote production solutions from Net Insight enable you to increase automatization across your camera operations, thereby keeping on-site crews smaller and more efficient.  

Data analytics are key to enabling your production crews to get timely insights about their operations, enabling them to effectively target feeds and feed into a long-term analytics ecosystem.  

Cloud capabilities are often restricted at smaller production companies due to lack of resources and in-house skillsets. Net Insight enables these smaller companies to boost their expertise with our Net Insight SaaS Media platform.
