Quicklink TX allows FreeSports Rugby League Back Chat to stay on air amid COVID-19 Posted: 18/05/2020
Quicklink TX allows FreeSports and rsquo; Rugby League Back Chat to stay on air amid COVID-19

The Quicklink TX has been enlisted by oXyFire Media to assist in remotely producing FreeSports’ Rugby League Back Chat programme amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The Skype TX technology has enabled the show to remotely introduce presenters and guests while the usual studio-based production is not able to take place.

Rugby League Back Chat is a 60-minute show produced by PHA Broadcast and broadcast on FreeSportsTV. The programme is in its 8th series and hosted by Matt Shaw and is the UK’s essential weekly Rugby League TV debate show.

“It’s not quite as bad as having a chat show with nothing to chat about; but having a sports chat show with no sport to chat about does have its challenges.” say’s Producer Paul Davies of PHA Broadcast. “As a 30-episode programmes, Rugby League Back Chat was only 3 programmes into its current series when the lockdown was announced meaning not only was there no sport to talk about, but no guests to talk about no sport.”

Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak and social distancing rules, the most obvious prospect was to cancel the series or at least put it on hold until it was safe to return to the outside world. PHA Broadcast required a method of continuing the Rugby League Back Chat show without requiring the presenter and guests to visit a studio and sit side-by-side.

VRT use Quicklink Studio (ST55) for and lsquo;De Warmste Week and rsquo; fundraiser event

VRT (Flemish Radio and Television Broadcasting Organisation), the national public-service radio and television broadcaster for the Flemish Community of Belgium, have recently used the Quicklink Studio (ST55) solution for coverage of VRT’s annual charity fundraiser De Warmste Week (The Warmest Week).

Every morning Studio Brussel held a video call with Dieter and Kevin from ‘Down The Snow’ to follow them along their hitchhiking adventure from Russia to Belgium.

“The Quicklink Studio solution is a very user-friendly solution which works smooth and efficiently, is not complicated and is easy-to-use” said a spokesperson at VRT.

“After a few tests, we found the Quicklink Studio was the ideal solution. It allowed us to easily invite a user via a link and have them appear in the interface instantly. By using the Quicklink Studio we were able to initiate a connection with full audio and video in both directions, giving us a ‘full-fledged’ duplex environment.”

Reynolds Journalism Institute uses the Quicklink TX for Washington Journal interview

The University of Missouri School of Journalism’s Reynolds Journalism Institute recently used Quicklink TX for an on-air interview with C-SPAN on the Senate presidential impeachment trial.

Staff from RJI utilized Quicklink TX to broadcast Missouri School of Law Professor and author Frank Bowman for a live, one-hour interview on C-SPAN’s morning program, Washington Journal. For this set-up, RJI easily established a two-way, high quality, ultra-low delay call.

“Because of Quicklink, we’re able to sell our small-scale facility to others as a site from which to do these national and international broadcasts. It’s like we’re able to play with the big boys without owning a microwave truck or satellite truck,” said Travis McMillen, senior media producer at RJI. “I’ve found that Quicklink TX provides a powerful, yet straight-forward experience for both the far site and the near site.”

RJI also uses Quicklink TX on a weekly basis during Global Journalist, a ‘virtual roundtable’ program featuring guests from anywhere in the world. During the show, three journalists join the in-studio moderator as guests to discuss a topic from their point of view as the journalist covering the story.
