Remote Production: Driving Force Behind Cost-Saving + Workflow Efficiencies
Remote production in Broadcast has been the driving force behind cost-saving and workflow efficiencies across the industry for many years now. The term itself has had a number of different meanings. Historically ‘remote production’ in the sports media industry meant the majority of the show was produced onsite at the venue and pretty much everything that was required for the broadcast such as graphics, replays etc. would be handled from the event location (or more usually the car park next door!). Over time this has changed and more of those functions have been centralised. The advantages are obvious - you have a team of specialists who focus on their core expertise such as producing graphics and this team can work on multiple events in a day reducing costs, environmental impacts, wasted time and in most cases improving the quality of the output, it’s a win/win for all concerned.

However, in the way that the industry has responded to producing sports content in the teeth of a pandemic, we can tease out a few trends. After all, it’s only a year ago that sports and sports broadcasting effectively stopped around the world. The fact that it’s been able to restart and continue, even as subsequent waves of the pandemic have crashed around it, is testament to some fast and creative thinking on behalf of sports broadcasters, leagues, and production companies around the world.
