Multi-camera Production, Re-imagined with Simplylive


How to Simplify Your Live Production Workflow — On-Site, Remote, and in the Cloud [Webinar Recording]

Presented by Greg Macchia of Simplylive and Jim Jachetta of VidOvation

Learn how to produce more of the live content viewers demand without scaling up the cost and size of your live production workflow. Find out how cloud-enabled, software-based production architecture can support and simplify live productions of any size, and hear about how leading broadcasters are doing just that!

Discover how to:

  • Leverage production infrastructure — on-site, remote, or in the cloud — to realize unprecedented workflow flexibility
  • Simplify key production tasks so that a single operator can run a full production, on-site or from afar
  • Adapt your workflow to address health safety measures
  • Create a micro control room dedicated to special events or to mitigate pressure on larger control rooms
  • Use bonded cellular and wireless video transport to deliver feeds from even the most challenging locations

We are Simplylive with the people who make live production more intuitive, more responsive, and less expensive. With our software, you can create live, multi-camera telecasts the way you see it by simply touching what you need. Functions that used to be locked in hardware, are now at your fingertips. Tap that shot to take it. Queue and scrub your slow-mo replays. Set up and run your graphics and transitions. It’s all there in an easy-to-learn touchscreen interface.

It’s called ViBox and it lets you work the way you want. The Simplylive ViBox platform is entirely software-driven. It comes in different configurations for different tasks. The various application layers connect with a common software back end. So the same touch screen can handle live switching, or slow-mo replay, or referee review, or master record, or all of them at once. When the hardware gets out of your way, you can create your show intuitively and dynamically. That’s what makes great television. Your talent is unrestrained. ViBox is powerful enough to tackle the toughest jobs in broadcasting without dropping the ball. The big players know that, and that’s why they’re using our systems right now. A modest event can be mixed and telecast by one person on one touch screen with fast internet. But for larger events, you can network multiple ViBox servers and scale up to dozens of slow-mo channels. But what we’ve achieved till now is only the foundation of where our vision will take us.

The jobs of live TV are the same, but the people doing them are no longer anchored to hunks of iron. They won’t need to sit together inexpensive control centers loaded with proprietary equipment. In fact, they won’t really need to be in the same town. Right now, ViBox software runs on commodity hardware that you can locate at the venue or the production center. But as television moves deeper into the IP universe, the physical location of the talent and the technology fades in relevance. In the future, your talent can be anywhere you want them. And the technology in the cloud.

ViBox is the natural outcome of the move to IP-based television. Flexible, lightweight, less expensive products can deliver more diverse, high-quality content at a lower cost. Today’s sports viewer might be watching on a big screen TV in the living room or on their phone in a snack bar. However they receive it, they come to expect more choice. The audiences are getting bigger, the demand for more content is. Whoever delivers what the viewers want wins. That’s why what we’re doing is so important. The minds that Simplylive believe in offering solutions that are full future imagined. Ready now, ready for what’s next.
