SAN JOSE, Calif. May 24, 2023–Remote production has revolutionized the way video content is created and delivered in the modern era of digital streaming. With advancements in technology and connectivity, the concept of remote production has gained immense importance and popularity. By enabling teams to collaborate and produce high-quality video content from various locations, remote production offers unparalleled flexibility, cost efficiency, and scalability. From live events and sports broadcasts to film and television productions, remote production has emerged as a game-changing solution that maximizes efficiency, reduces expenses, and ensures seamless content delivery to audiences worldwide.
5G technology offers broadcasters unparalleled opportunities to deliver high-quality video content. By providing greater bandwidth, lower latency, and improved quality of service, 5G has made it possible for broadcasters to take their remote production capabilities to the next level. However, deploying and maintaining these services is still a challenging task that requires significant testing, troubleshooting, and debugging to identify playback issues and qualify devices and streams.
VisualOn, a leading provider of video streaming solutions with a global presence in research and development, operations, and customer support, understands the complexities involved in delivering high-quality video services. The process of assembling the necessary hardware, streams, and personnel in one location can be expensive and time-consuming. To address this, VisualOn has introduced the Remote Lab project, which is designed to enable remote teams to access physical devices with ease. This project combines software and hardware solutions to provide optimized audio, video, and multimedia applications.
The Remote Lab project solves the challenges associated with remote production by providing a streamlined solution for managing disparate teams, devices, and content. With ultra-low latency, this solution ensures that streaming service providers can offer a consistent quality of service across all viewing devices.
