Gearhouse Broadcast has deployed Net Insight's remote production 2.0 solution at their Australian Remote Broadcast Centre.
Gearhouse Broadcast has deployed Net Insight’s remote production 2.0 solution at their Australian Remote Broadcast Centre located in Melbourne from early January 2018.
During January more than 80 feeds, including live camera, video audio, intercom and data feeds have been transported between venues, the Gearhouse Broadcast’s remote broadcast centre and client premises in Melbourne.
“We have selected Net Insight for their telco-endorsed and reliable, high-quality remote production transport solution that we can rely on for significant live events, when nothing can go wrong,” said Gavin Romanis, Business Development Director of Gearhouse Broadcast Australia. “This is the first time that JPEG2000 compression is used in Australia to transport all feeds to remotely produce a live event of such high profile and scale.”
Commenting on the solutions deployed, Fredrik Tumegård, CEO of Net Insight said: “Our joint remote production solution that we are delivering together with Gearhouse Broadcast offers next generation sports broadcast production very cost-efficiently, and enables them to introduce highly efficient workflows to deliver more, engaging TV content to viewers and thereby keep them as customers.”
All live camera feeds are compressed using Net Insight’s JPEG2000 compression technology while reducing the bandwidth by more than 80% compared to uncompressed, the company claims. At the same time, the end-to-end latency is about 150 ms.
Net Insight ‘s services team is supporting Gearhouse Broadcast with offsite consulting, design and pre-configuration of the remote production 2.0 solution and onsite support for the duration of the project in Australia.
