TeliaSonera International Carrier has today launched its Cross Border Remote HD Production Solution (Remote Production Solution), the company’s latest innovative, high quality offering being showcased at IBC 2011 in Amsterdam.
The Remote Production Solution utilises TeliaSonera’s award-winning fiber broadcast network – the largest in Europe – and promises to remove the need for onsite outside broadcast (OB) infrastructure and personnel. International remote production exploits the unlimited bandwidth offered by TeliaSonera and presents a real alternative to satellite, where gaining access to capacity at these levels can be a challenge. In addition, fiber offers the lowest possible latency, enabling true real-time TV production over long distances and across international borders.
TeliaSonera, Europe’s premier network provider, will be showcasing this innovative new broadcast practice by delivering four uncompressed HD feeds on its MediaConnect platform from The Royal Tennis Club in Stockholm to a production team at IBC in Amsterdam, 1500km away.
Erik Hallberg, President of TeliaSonera International Carrier added: “TeliaSonera International Carrier has a longstanding relationship with key international broadcasters – we’re proud to offer the broadcast industry this innovative solution, which we believe will completely revolutionise outside broadcasting. We will continue to build and support on the Cross Border Remote Production Solution with our unrivalled reach and depth across Europe, the best customer service in our industry.”
The announcement follows a period of testing with Twentyfourseven, one of Scandanavia’s biggest independent production companies, which utilised TeliaSonera’s fiber network in conjunction with Net Insight’s Nimbra Platform
Kent Lundgren, CEO, Twentyfourseven, commented: “TeliaSonera International Carrier Europe’s award-winning network allows us to deliver content using our new Distance Outside Broadcast (DOB) work flow, particularly live events such as sports and music performances, in a really efficient and cost effective manner. This is especially important in an age when budgets are slimmer and audience’s expectations are higher than ever, demanding quality programming across numerous platforms.”
TeliaSonera International Carrier is the owner and operator of the largest fiber optic network in Europe, the third largest in the world, serving more than 85% of all European Internet Service Providers. Its Media Connect service offers international video contribution and distribution over a global fiber network infrastructure.
