NEP Belgium captures by IP Remote
NEP Belgium successfully produced a soccer-game using IP-REMOTE
28 March 2016 – Rotselaar
During the U21 qualifier game Belgium and Montenegro, NEP Belgium successfully tested their IPRemote setup in collaboration with Belgian broadcaster Proximus.
The setup consisted of 4 dedicated cameras and 7 microphones around the pitch of OHL (Leuven). All these signals were sent over a 1 Gbit line to the production room at Proximus. The central production team, being the director, an EVS-operator, a vision- and a sound engineer produced the game entirely remote, as if they were sitting in an OB Truck on site. In the stadium, a commentator & interviewer watched the match on their monitors and commented the game, as they do in the classic setup.
The whole team noticed no latencies or any real issues in this way of producing.
NEP Belgium used technology by Lawo and was very happy with the outcome, both from a technical, as well as from a productional point of view. This is a very promising way of producing certain games in the future.
Thanks to Skynet iMotion Activities, a subsidiary of Proximus and the whole NEP Belgium-team for all their efforts and to Lawo helping building this setup.
