James Robinson, Director, Hitomi, with his crystal ball for 2020
Remote production is transforming the way broadcasters and producers cover sport, and is sure to be a dominant trend in 2020. By carrying all the camera and microphone signals back to base for live production and post, sports coverage can be crafted better, with more engagement for the viewer and cost-efficiencies for the production company through higher equipment utilisation. Global events can be – and are – covered from a single, dedicated facility for consistency and ease of distribution. The world of e-sports led the way in remote production, and now traditional sports are scrambling to catch up to reap the benefits.
