TeliaSonera International Carrier has today launched its Cross Border Remote HD Production Solution (Remote Production Solution), the companys latest innovative, high quality offering being showcased at IBC 2011 in Amsterdam.
The Remote Production Solution utilises TeliaSoneras award-winning fiber broadcast network the largest in Europe and promises to remove the need for onsite outside broadcast (OB) infrastructure and personnel. International remote production exploits the unlimited bandwidth offered by TeliaSonera and presents a real alternative to satellite, where gaining access to capacity at these levels can be a challenge. In addition, fiber offers the lowest possible latency, enabling true real-time TV production over long distances and across international borders.
TeliaSonera, Europes premier network provider, will be showcasing this innovative new broadcast practice by delivering four uncompressed HD feeds on its MediaConnect platform from The Royal Tennis Club in Stockholm to a production team at IBC in Amsterdam, 1500km away.
