A Focus on Remote Production
Larissa Goerner, Strategic Product Manager at Net Insight discusses
the latest developments at the company...
InBroadcast: Please give a brief
overview of what we can expect
within your sector?
Larissa Goerner: Broadcasters
are receiving pressure to produce
more content with less resources. If
done correctly, remote production is
the perfect solution to ensure highquality content while enabling the
production of more content each day.
As studios move to IP, the focus goes
beyond changes in cabling. Increasing
efficiency by moving to remote and
distributed production will be key.
This can now be easily managed
and orchestrated over the growing
infrastructure of WAN for broadcast
InB: Any specific products taking
centre stage this year?
LG: As one of the pioneers in
remote production, Net Insight will
focus on the benefits customers
can achieve by using Net Insight's
Nimbra platform and produce from
their central gallery at home as they
are used in their OB vans on site. The
Nimbra platform offers all relevant
features for remote production, such
as support of IP video transport, sync
transport over the WAN, best in class
low latency compression, built-in
frame synchronisers for camera feed
playout aligned to the house clock,
as well as QoS assured transport
with mathematically hitless 1+1 path
protection guaranteeing outstanding
service availability for broadcasters.
InB: What challenges did you
LG: The biggest challenges we
see are not that people do not trust
the technology, but the change of
mind-set in how productions are
made. People are used to travelling
to events, seeing the action on site
and being in direct interaction with
the on-site teams. Now, broadcasters
are becoming more open to and
embracing remote production because
of the cost, resource and efficiency
savings it delivers over traditional
InB: Which territories do you
think will show particular interest?
LG: We currently see this trend
evolving on every continent. It is
especially of interest where OB
vans are driving long distances and
traveling to remote locations. In these
scenarios, remote production is the
natural choice of many customers.
Another strong area is with large
international events, such as Olympic
Games or World Cups, where remote
production of unilateral feeds of host
broadcasters receive more and more
requests. Net Insight has experienced
great coverage on all major events in
these areas since 2012.
InB: Any future innovations ahead
that you can discuss?
LG: Our partnership with Calrec
for remote production now extends
Net Insight's remote production
capabilities for best in class audio.
Calrec's RP1 solution provides us
with a great complementary product
to better meet the needs of our
customers. This partnership provides
both our companies with the perfect
foundation for innovation and future
InB: Thank you for taking the time to
answer our questions.
