Living Live: Diving Into Remote Connectivity


In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, remote work has become the world’s temporary new normal for doing business – and live productions aren’t excluded from that requirement.

With productions needing to go on as scheduled, but often having to be operated over great distance and through remote collaboration only, remote connectivity and workflows are more important than ever.

On this episode of Living Live with Ross Video, host Tyler Kern was joined by Ross Video Senior Solutions Architect Brandon Rhoda, Product Manager – Production Switchers Les O’Reilly and Product Manager – Overdrive Mike Paquin to discuss this shift to remote work and how, until the world’s productions can shift back to “normal” operation, productions can make the most of the situation.

Remote production, Rhoda said, comes down to three key factors.

“The first one is having the infrastructure to support it. You have to be able to access your equipment from home,” he said. “From there, you have to see and hear and communicate with everybody, so that’s really the second thing. And then the third one is understanding how you have to use your tools remotely, because you’re going to use them a little bit differently than you normally would.”

Regarding the infrastructure, itself, Rhoda said communication and coordination with IT departments, special attention to VPN services and their functionality, and more are critical.

While getting familiar with these new best practices and use cases for tools could require some retraining, the most important thing, O’Reilly said, is tackling latency and being unafraid to start small and scale up remote productions as your team becomes more familiar with what’s required.
