The SVG Podcast: At-Home Production – Perspectives From the Front Bench

A roundtable discussion features speakers from NASCAR, Tennis Channel, and more

REMI. At-home. Home Run. Remote. Whatever you call it, it’s the live production workflow that’s reshaping the business.

It’s the act of taking camera and audio feeds from the venue and producing the event from a control room maybe hundreds of miles away in a control room in a broadcast facility. At-home production has broadcasters and vendors rethinking their facilities, gear purchases, staffing, and everything in between. Depending on who you ask, it’s the greatest trend in the business or the worst.

Rather than discussing the technology making at-home production possible, on this episode of The SVG Podcast we will, instead, get the opinions of some of those working on the front bench of these shows. The true storytellers of the live sports industry.

Here’s the panelists:
Keith D’Alessandro, NASCAR, Senior Coordinating Producer
Bill Herbstman, Director
Dan Maloney, Matrox Video, Technical Marketing Manager
Rick Seegull, Riedel, VP, System Consulting
Bob Whyley, Tennis Channel, SVP, Production, and Executive Producer

We discuss how using an at-home model changes the nature of the live show. What steps need to be taken to ensure the broadcast is not compromised? How they prepare their crews different for an at-home show versus a traditional on-site show. That and much more.
