Demand for coverage of live events, particularly sports, is at an all-time high. For broadcasters, delivering this level of content is an increasing challenge; but even more so at a time when budgets are being squeezed and the environmental impact of operations are being continually scrutinized. This is leading many to turn to remote or at-home production techniques.
This paper explains the major challenges associated with remote production and some of the technologies and techniques that can be used to overcome them. It also looks to the future and how the migration to 4K or even 8K productions may change remote production workflows, particularly regarding codec choices.
