Umea, Sweden 21 May 2020 — Intinor Technology, Sweden’s leading developer of products and solutions for high quality video over the internet, will be demonstrating how to do remote production in a series of live webinars with Danish company Skaarhoj, manufacturers of universal broadcast control panels. The aim is to showcase how the remote production tools from both Intinor and Skaarhoj complement each other to give a flexible, secure workflow for live production using a variety of different content sources and locations.
Interest in remote production workflows (or REMI) has been on the increase for some time now already. Even before the current global social distancing requirements created an added incentive for broadcasting companies to seek an alternative to the traditional travel-dependent methods of production, the economic and productivity benefits that REMI offers enables companies to more easily meet the rising demand for live content.
The live webinars in themselves will be remote productions between Denmark and Sweden with PTZ cameras in Intinor’s base in Umea, Sweden, and at another location in Stockholm, Sweden, being remotely controlled by Skaarhoj’s control panels at their headquarters in Copenhagen, Denmark.
“Our mission is to ease the use of broadcast hardware for people making live video” says Skaarhoj’s CEO, Founder and Chief Designer, Kasper Skårhøj. “Our universal broadcast controllers give content producers an incredibly flexible hardware platform for their ever changing control needs.”
Skaarhoj is running weekly webinars demonstrating their controllers in action. For the webinar with Intinor, the inputs from a variety of sources will be managed using Intinor’s Direkt router studio. The interoperability Intinor provides is a big advantage to live remote productions where content may be coming in from cameras, laptop and even mobile phones via a variety of different IP streams and protocols.
Daniel Lundstedt, Marketing Coordinator for Intinor, says “The Direkt router studio supports input from different IP streams, such as SRT, RTMP, or Intinor’s own protocol, BRT™ Bifrost, all of which offer ways to handle secure transmission even over poor internet connections.”
“One of the major challenges in switching from the more traditional workflows to remote production is how to get around the inherent instability of the public internet” continues Lundstedt. “That’s where Intinor comes in because that’s what we do all the time.”
Intinor’s own transport protocol, Bifrost BRT™, will be demonstrated during the webinar. This offers forward error correction, adaptive bitrate, ARQ, or resending, and network bonding.
Lundstedt added “We aim to show people how they can save money and time by setting up a remote production workflow and cutting out what becomes unnecessary travel. There are many benefits to a remote workflow and, in these times, it is an essential tool.”
The webinars will run on Tuesday May 26th at various different times to allow for global time preferences: (follow links to sign up)
