Powering Remote
Possibilities
By Per Lindgren, CTO, Net Insight...

A

s well as demanding more
content, consumers today expect
a viewing experience that is as good or better - than the in-person. Instant
replays, more camera angles, access to
highlights, and flawless quality on any
screen are just the tip of the iceberg.
Today, live production has become a
large and complex undertaking, while
the challenge for broadcasters and
production companies is balancing
rising consumer demand for more
content, and anytime, anywhere
access, with budgets that remain static.
Against this background, the
business benefits of remote production
are clear. By sending raw camera
feeds, audio, and equipment control
over a digital infrastructure to a
central studio, the switch from CAPEX
to OPEX leads to cost savings. Even
before COVID-19, broadcasters and
content producers were turning to
remote production to help them
deliver exciting content experiences
more efficiently.
The pandemic served to accelerate
the move to remote workflows and
cloud-based platforms as broadcasters
and
production
companies
accommodate travel restrictions and
limits on staff numbers at live event
venues.
Rapidly pivoting to remote and
distributed workflows has been critical
to the successful delivery of live sports,
news, and online video content during
these challenging times. What was
seen as rare and pioneering barely a
year ago is now a near-universal and
permanent switch.
At Net Insight we've been driving the
industry transition towards remote
production since 2012, working in close
partnership with industry innovators
such as Grass Valley, to advance the
development of remote workflows.
For example, Grass Valley's DirectIP
functionality allows cameras and their
base stations (XCUs) to be located
separately.
As a result, camera operators and a
skeleton technical crew are the only
staff needed at an event location; the
rest of the production team can remain

at the home studio or at a remote
production hub.
This technology advancement further
eliminates the complex logistics
involved in getting large volumes of
equipment and personnel from one
live event to the next, while it allows
one production team to support
multiple events in a single day - that's
the game changer.

a durable and flexible backend is
particularly important for Mobilelinks'
sports broadcasting customers who
need to support the delivery of
multiple uncompressed feeds between
arenas and its main production
facilities at ultra-low latency.
Looking ahead, broadcasters need
ways of supporting new higher
resolution production requirements
Sveriges Television (SVT),
remote production of Alpine World
Ski Championships in Åre

Delivering a network
for the future
Our Nimbra technology is relied
on by the world's leading service
providers to ensure the reliability
and robustness that is essential to
uninterrupted live feeds. The Nimbra
platform is designed for transporting
high-quality media over IP, allowing
customers such as SVT, The Switch,
Tata Communications and Mobilelinks,
to handle contribution, distribution,
cloud ingest and orchestration on one
platform and open up new business
models.
Transmission services company
Mobilelinks turned to us to expand
its network capacity across Sweden,
Norway, Denmark, and Finland. Having

and enabling highly flexible distributed
workflows. On large multi-location
projects, feeds must be brought in
from a number of different venues,
with zero delays and no compromise
to the final viewing experience.
Sweden's
national
broadcaster
Sveriges Television (SVT), deployed
DirectIP technology along with Nimbra
to support remote production of the
2019 Alpine World Ski Championships,
held in Åre. The remote workflow
seamlessly handled 80 uncompressed
HD camera signals and 100 feeds. Live
signals were delivered from the venue
to SVT's Stockholm HQ some 372 miles
away.
The Åre project was a massive
undertaking and at the time was

Nimbra Edges' Network Manager - Inputs

the largest remote production ever
handled. Technology advancements
that enable contribution, distribution,
cloud ingest and orchestration on
one platform makes this type of
deployments much simpler to achieve.
In India, Tata Communications
is launching a new global 100G IP
media backbone of unprecedented
scale delivered in collaboration with
Net Insight. The large global media
network will enable broadcasters,
sports organisations, OTT companies
and eSports businesses to offer their
audiences worldwide more immersive
viewing and gaming experiences and
transform how they operate through
cost-efficient full remote or distributed
production. Tata Communications
has also integrated Net Insight's new
cloud-based solution Nimbra Edge,
leveraging the existing media network
to connect a number of its large data
centres into a globally distributed
media fabric connecting their whole
media services ecosystem.

Moving media to the cloud
Relevance and speed lie at the heart
of live content. The pandemic has
highlighted the importance of keeping
audiences connected and the need for
flexible and agile ways of creating and
delivering content. Many broadcasters
and production companies have
accelerated roadmaps to remote
production and cloud adoption as a
result. It has clearly shown that with
flexibility and agility now more critical
than ever, open IP networks and the
virtualisation of media functions using
cloud-based technologies have a
huge role to play in the future of live
content.
The industry's transition toward
cloud and IP is a fundamental enabler
of innovation, helping broadcasters,
service providers and production
companies launch new services,
deliver targeted and personalised
content and achieve significant
efficiencies.
Open standards are central to
maximising this potential. Being open
means agility and flexibility.
