With the COVID-19 virus creating unprecedented media consumption for news and entertainment, broadcast, production, and media companies face unique challenges ahead. One critical application is the ability to create remote production monitoring workflows that allow studio and master control operators to work at home.
Remote or home-based Studio Control Operators are using IP based remote KVM systems (or remote desktop) to access on-prem automation and server systems. In this situation, they lack critical confidence monitoring and multi-viewer displays.
Sienna NDI Source-Multi and NDI Processing Engine converts on-prem baseband HD-SDI sources and multi-viewer feeds to NDI. NDI feeds are viewable by remote operators in high-quality, full-frame rates with sub-second latency on Windows/Mac laptop and desktop computers. The NDI feed can also be decoded to HD-SDI and HDMI for dedicated monitor setups.
