How Remote Video Productions Have Become More Accessible

Remote video production is changing the broadcast landscape. While the model accelerated due to the pandemic, the technology making it possible continues to drive innovation. Discussing this topic, Pro AV Today host Ben Thomas spoke with Mickey Miller, CEO of Vislink. Vislink specializes in collecting, delivering, and managing high-quality live video and data across news, sports, and entertainment.

Cost savings is the result of remote production, but Miller says two other benefits are even more important. “First, you can keep great talent, as they don’t need to be on the road constantly. Second is the quantity of productions per day this enables.”

This new evolution is just beginning as the landscape shifts to democratizing video production. In looking at the technology, there are many components providing a flexible network, including the cloud, IT-based platforms, edge computing, and 5G.

Miller described the possibilities 5G is presenting, “It’s a cost-effective medium to transmit to or from. Live-action from the sideline can be sent to the control room or cloud with massive bandwidth.”

With such a framework, broadcasters can bring in new cameras with unique streams, culminating in compelling content for the audience.

5G is already making its mark on large venues. Smaller venues can leverage it, too. “It’s guaranteed bandwidth and latency,” Miller added.

In the long term, remote production capabilities are likely to impact content on large and small scales. “At the high end, it’s a better connection with the consumers of the content and adding more value,” Miller noted.
