London-based broadcast and production service provider Trickbox TV has begun employing Quicklink Studio to manage remote contributors for its clients including the BBC and Netflix.
The Quicklink Studio solution works within a simple web browser, meaning contributors can access it without a dedicated app or installing software. Contributors can be invited via SMS, WhatsApp, email or by generating a simple URL link, said Quicklink.
An operator is able to remotely control and configure the contributor’s device camera, microphone and speaker settings via the Quicklink Manager.
“Quicklink has helped streamline our hybrid productions, whether that’s in our TV studio in The Shard, or on location at venues. We can also very easily introduce high-quality remote guests into our productions,” said Snita Bharth Fort of Trickbox TV.
“We like the ease of sending links to remote contributors. We also like the ease-of-use of the Quicklink Manager, offering full guest management from a web browser. The remote management options available from the Quicklink Manager allow us to pre-screen, prepare and manage our remote contributors to achieve the absolute best quality contributions.”
In addition to introducing remote guest contributors, Trickbox is also employing Quicklink Studio Servers to connect outside broadcast projects to their remote production facility for onward live streaming.
