The DPP has published a new report defining five architectural models for producing live content, and examining which will dominate in the future.
The report includes contributions from 60 experts from across the media industry, with each model applicable to content as diverse as sports, news, esports, and entertainment.
It assesses each production model against factors such as content and creative opportunities, bandwidth and latency sensitivities, and cost and risk management.
“When talking to industry professionals about remote production, it quickly became painfully clear that terminology is a key problem, so we started by addressing that.” said DPP CTO, Rowan de Pomerai. “And it’s remarkable what that unlocks. By defining the production models, we were then able to examine the benefits of each, and see clearly which will be dominant in the coming years.
“Our expert contributors provided insight into both the challenges and opportunities unlocked by different live remote production architectures,” added de Pomerai. “They also shared their plans for the future. While 2020 saw a dramatic rise in distributed production, we predict that centralised and cloud production will dominate in the longer term.”
