Remote production in a box10 September 2016
The RP1 remote production unit is making its IBC debut. The RP1 is a live-broadcast product that directly addresses the need for high-quality content from remote locations, for broadcasters who cannot always justify sending a dedicated OB truck and team.
The RP1 remote production engine is a 2U core that contains integrated, FPGA-based DSP, which enables a console surface at another facility to control all mixing functionality. The RP1 core manages all of the processing for IFB routing and remote monitor mixes, and it does so locally with no latency.
This level of integration and remote control makes it simple for any remote mix engineer to set up IFB mixes and eradicates any delay for remote listeners or presenters.
