These are challenging times for the broadcast industry. As more media organisations enforce home working, the spread of the coronavirus may well be speeding up the transition to remote production. Here at Hitomi we're working remotely ourselves but are still available to help and support our customers new and old.
We're delighted to be able to make our own contribution for easier, professional-looking remote broadcasting with the launch of our free iOS app for fast and precise remote lip-sync measurement that can be used by reporters or presenters wherever they are.
Simply hold an iphone or ipad running the Glass app in shot and the production unit, wherever they are, be it in a studio on the other side of the world, can align the measurements for lip-sync accuracy in seconds using the MatchBox Analyser.
“Synchronisation is often one of the last items on a field production checklist and can happen right up to going live or on-air. Often, it can be discovered too late that there are sync issues, which can be costly and, at the very least, embarrassing to resolve at the last second.”
- Hitomi Broadcast Director Russell Johnson
