SVG SportsTech On Demand: Parsec’s Benjy Boxer on How Remote-Desktop Technology Enables Remote Production Workflows
While the 2021 NAB Show has been moved to October, the spring season will still feature a cavalcade of new product releases and groundbreaking news coming out of the broadcast technology sector. In an effort to keep the video-production community informed, SVG is hosting a series of SportsTech On Demand video interviews throughout April, May, and June with executives from the industry’s top technology vendors.
Over the past year as the pandemic has forced the entire M&E industry to shift entirely or at least partially to remote-production workflows. As a result the demand for remote desktop tools has never been higher. Enter Parsec, which came out of the gaming and world and has been on hand to meet that demand as broadcasters look to keep their content factories running despite not being able to physicially access their facilities.
In this interview, Parsec Founder and CEO Benjy Boxer discusses sports broadcast and sports video’s success using their high performance remote desktop tool, how Activision Blizzard Esports is using Parsec for its groundbreaking cloud-based production ecosystem, the company’s evolving Enterprise solution, and recent features that let broadcast and video groups better automate and control Parsec for their organizations.
