Tasked with producing more live coverage with limited resources, broadcasters are turning to at-home/REMI (remote-integration model) production. At-home production can reduce the movement and help maximize the efficiency and utilization of people and equipment, and reduce on-site set-up times. During the Broadcast Engineering and Information Technology Conference (BEITC) at this year's 2018 NAB Show, Klaus Weber of Grass Valley, Peter Walker of Calrec Audio and Larissa Görner of Net Insight will join forces to speak about the major challenges with at-home production and how these issues can be solved. The session, titled, "Live At-Home Production 2.0," will take place on April 7th from 1:30PM - 2:50PM (PST) in the North Hall Meeting Room (N260).
The presentation provides a forum for each company to bring its specific industry experience to the discussion. Weber will speak about video and camera transmission, Walker is highlighting audio production, and Görner is focusing on signal transport. Together, they represent the main components of a remote production and will speak to the way each company's state-of-the-art solutions provide better video, audio and transport workflows for at-home production. By utilizing a complementary technology approach, broadcasters are equipped with a complete, proven and easy way to generate significantly more live content.
The advantages of remote production are widely acknowledged across the industry, but what has been lacking is a focus to bring the at-home workflow to the next level by providing innovative audio-visual, networking and transport solutions. Grass Valley, Calrec Audio and Net Insight will explain this new workflow, as well as address challenges with remote production, in the At-Home Production 2.0 session.
All three companies are also holding at-home production demos live on the show floor at NAB 2018. Live demos will take place three times a day, with a production hub at the Grass Valley booth (booth SL106) providing live mixing for remote venues at the Net Insight booth (SU3821) and the Calrec booth (C7408).
