3.A.1: BIG – SCREENS, PRODUCTIONS, SOUND 3.B.1: NEW IDEAS IN REMOTE PRODUCTION / CONTRIBUTION
This session will enthrall you with case studies on the big screen at Taronga Zoo and the Rio Olympics and conclude with some interesting results on cinema sound quality. A case study extravaganza! Reducing expenses is a high priority for any business. Producing an outside broadcast or gathering content from the field involve high staff and logistic costs. With transmission costs reducing it is now feasible to do less in the field and more in-house. This session looks at a fascinating case study and innovations in remote production and contribution.

As broadcasters’ current technology reaches end-oflife, what would prevent or enable a transition to a full IP facility?

This panel session is about the central site infrastructure, but recognising that an IP workflow could be implemented in your own hardware, in a private or public cloud, or some amalgam of the three. Has technology matured to the point where the full IP facility is possible, and how do we build the skills to make this happen?
