UK broadcaster GB News is using Quicklink Studio (ST55) in order to bring remote guests into its broadcasts.
Quicklink Studio Servers (ST100, ST102, ST208 & ST200) enables GB News to easily integrate remote guests into any workflow using HD-SDI, NDI and other outputs. The simple web browser requires no installation by the contributor, who can be invited via SMS, WhatsApp, email or by generating a simple URL link.
GB News has full operational control over virtual rooms, remote guests and more within one central portal accessible from any global location. Using the intuitive remote management controls, the broadacster can pre-screen, control and manage all guest participants, including camera/microphone/speakers selection, resolution, audio mode/gain and more.
“Opinions and thoughts from remote experts/guests are a key part of GB News structure. As a result, it was extremely important that we adopted a solution that would allow us to obtain these opinions in the highest quality possible – Quicklink Studio allowed us to achieve exactly this,” said Stephen Willmott, head of technology and operations at GB News.
“The management of remote guests is an essential part of introducing remote guests. Our guests are not always the most proficient with technology, however the remote control options within the Quicklink Manager allow us to overcome these challenges by being able to remotely control devices and other aspects of the remote guests. The Quicklink solutions are truly a fundamental part of GB News productions.”
