RUSHWORKS VDESK Integrated Production System and Streaming Solutions Enable Quick and Easy Shelter-in-Place Compliance

RUSHWORKS VDESK Integrated Production System and Streaming Solutions Enable Quick and Easy and lsquo;Shelter-in-Place and rsquo; Compliance

RUSHWORKS, provider of cool technology for production, playback and streaming since 2001, provides remote production systems and streaming solutions to customers ranging from government agencies, television broadcasters and houses of worship. During the unprecedented era of social distancing and remote communications brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic the Company has responded to a cross-section of organizations requests to maximize their systems and boost remote capabilities with its easily adaptable technologies.

Rush Beesley, company founder and president, commented on the current and future status of remote production, “Creating and disseminating audio/video content for broadcast, cable and streaming to thousands of viewers worldwide has been increasing exponentially. ‘Shelter-in-place’ restrictions may become more relaxed, but remote production and streaming is here to stay. What had been a growing trend in the pre-Covid-19 era has been catapulted to the forefront of technology as producers scramble to test their skills, expand their creativity and adopt streaming and remote communications platforms to sustain the availability of programming and content.”

RUSHWORKS’ core technologies, which include the VDESK and REMO Integrated PTZ Production Systems, A-LIST BROADCAST and A-LIST Streamster scheduling and playout systems, have been called into service during the current health crisis and resulting massive quarantine, to provide the robust production and information management infrastructure demanded in today’s environment. The Company has also developed a response to accommodate ‘hybrid’ meetings attended by a combination of on-site and remote participants.

With help from the Company’s system design and installation team, The City of South Miami incurred only minimal costs to make fully remote meetings and mixed remote/on-site meetings possible. The team used its remote management capabilities to configure a new aux mix on a Dante mixer enabling NDI out of RUSHWORKS’ VDESK to Zoom meeting software, thus fully integrating the meetings without requiring any staff or city employees to be physically located in City Hall. RUSHWORKS was even able to integrate incoming phone calls from citizens into the mix using the SIP enabled Dante processors. Since all infrastructure utilized already existed, it followed the normal signal path out to air; meetings are captioned, recorded for rebroadcast, fed to multiple cable systems, and streamed to the city’s website - just like any other meeting.

Added Beesley, “RUSHWORKS Integrated Production Systems include not only streaming and NDI support, but also a simple path for conducting the interactive remote sessions so in-demand now, where no one needs be, or can be, present at these facilities. Using Zoom, Skype, Microsoft Teams and other ‘conferencing’ software packages, up to 100 participants can interact with video and voice, all displayed in ‘head and shoulders’ video panels in a Multiview screen presentation.”

Features include advanced scheduling or meetings created as ad hoc sessions. The meeting organizer has many useful tools at hand, including muting any or all participants’ audio, and recording the entire session in both audio and video files for sharing and/or archiving.
