Gearhouse Broadcast Leverages Net Insight Solution for Australian Remote Broadcast Centre
Global production service provider Gearhouse Broadcast has deployed Net Insight’s Remote production 2.0 solution for its 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 are transported between venues, the Gearhouse Broadcast’s remote broadcast centre and client premises in Melbourne.
Net Insight’s Remote production 2.0 enables the high-quality and end-to-end controlled solution over any network and bandwidth, introducing efficient workflows resulting in resource savings for both large and small live events.
“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,” says 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.”
“Our joint remote production solution that we are delivering together with Gearhouse Broadcast offers next generation sports broadcast production very cost-efficiently,” says Fredrik Tumegård, CEO of Net Insight. “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 leading JPEG2000 compression technology and enabling cost-efficient links while reducing the bandwidth by more than 80% compared to uncompressed. At the same time, the end-to-end latency is about 150 ms, allowing a smooth operation for all involved creative crew and operators.
Net Insight ‘s professional services team supports 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.
According to Net Insight’s announcement, this project will not significantly impact the company’s 2017-2018 revenues.
