NAB 2012: Net Insight & Miranda partner to boost remote production
Net Insight and Miranda Technologies have unveiled a new partnership to simplify remote workflows and centralized production for live events. “Net Insight’s high-quality transport capabilities combined with Miranda Technologies’ expertise in delivering IT-based and traditional television production and playout systems is the ideal solution to enable integration and accessibility to all studios and content regardless of location.,” runs a statement.
As a result of this partnership, Net Insight and Miranda Technologies will deliver the high-quality, real-time network required to avoid quality degradation feeds, while enabling studio crews to remotely control, produce and edit media content seamlessly over a virtual studio network.
“Unique to the industry, our combined solution for remote workflow and production revolutionizes video production as we know it,” said Fredrik Trägårdh, CEO, Net Insight. “Our partnership with Miranda Technologies further demonstrates our commitment to providing broadcasters and service providers with the most innovative solutions. Our joint solutions significantly reduce the operational cost of content production and allow broadcasters and content owners to break down the limitations of local production and make the most of new global media opportunities with 100 percent QoS.”
In addition to increasing efficiency and simplifying workflows, this partnership brings cost savings to broadcasters by opening the Studio LAN to a Studio WAN environment, as this enables the provisioning of resources over a virtual studio network. As a result, broadcasters can now cover and produce a larger number of events, which leads to increased revenue gain.
“Our customers look to us to help them create greater efficiency in their workflows to help reduce both the operational and capital expenditures,” said Marco Lopez, Miranda’s senior vice president, Infrastructure, Routers and Monitoring. “The combined offer between Miranda and Net Insight allows a production facility to avoid, in many cases, replicating a complete mobile production at the event. Remote camera, microphone and communication feeds can be sent directly-and natively-back into the centralized production facility using Net Insight’s advanced transport network. This maximizes the usage of the fixed production facility, but more importantly is a huge cost savings when you look at the staff and equipment that would typically be required at the venue.”
