Challenges with remote event productions

Like a simulator game on the computer, only better!

Remote event production is challenging because it removes the physical aspect of event production and requires everyone involved to work in different locations. Here are some of the challenges that can come with it.

What do you have to pay attention to?

If you know the challenges of remote event production, you can meet them with confidence!

  • Technical complexity:

Remote production requires a reliable and stable Internet connection, as well as specialized technologies and tools for communications, video and audio streaming, graphics insertion, and other aspects of event production. It is important to ensure that all personnel involved have the necessary equipment and knowledge to work together smoothly.

  • Coordination and communication:

With the production team working in multiple locations, effective communication and coordination is essential. Clear communication channels and protocols must be established to ensure that all stakeholders are on the same page and can share information in real time.

  • Time challenges in remote event productions:

The time difference between the various locations may cause difficulties in planning and executing the event. It is important to adjust the schedule accordingly and ensure that all team members can make the necessary preparations.

  • Technical support and resilience:

In remote production, it is important to have adequate technical support to quickly troubleshoot problems on-site or at the participants’ facilities. Mechanisms for fail-safety must also be put in place to intercept any technical malfunctions or failures and ensure that the event runs smoothly.

  • Creative exchange and atmosphere:

Remote production can make face-to-face interaction and creative exchange difficult. It requires alternative ways to capture the atmosphere and energy of a live event and inspire the team.

Despite these challenges, remote event productions also offer benefits such as cost savings, flexibility, and the ability to bring in experts from multiple locations. With the right planning, technology and collaboration, these challenges can be met successfully.

We supported one of the first, if not the first remote event production ever, back in 2013 for ESPN in the wake of the X-Games in Tignes in the French Alps, with a fiber-based 1 GigEthernet connection from Tignes to New York on the ESPN network.

A Flexible Partner for a Complex Project

“The simplicity of working with such a professional and flexible partner has lowered our costs. Over the past three years, we would have likely had to invest 30% more in our network had we gone with a different supplier. The partnership we have with them, from their account management to technical consultancy, has proven to add high value for Kyocera Document Solutions Europe time and again.”

A Privileged Partnership

“Thanks to Riedel Networks, Faller Packaging now has a state-of-the-art, fully redundant, high-visibility, and high-availability SD-WAN network connecting our six European production sites and 1,300 employees. From our head office to our shop floors and warehouses, our people can meet our fast-paced production quotas knowing that our infrastructure is rock solid, and my IT team has found the perfect partner to help keep our network running smoothly.”

Innovating Communication Solutions with Riedel Networks

„Having the right partner in business—and in life—will help you take the right steps to overcome your difficulties. Riedel has proven to be a great partner, not just in development but throughout the support process. To me, this peace of mind of a reliable connection and a reliable partner is invaluable. I look forward to collaborating with them on a radio solution for race cars in other competitive spheres.“

Our SD-WAN works perfectly!

„Today’s IT challenges are no longer about maintaining infrastructure. IT must add value by helping clients and customers stay ahead of the competition. Our SD-WAN is running perfectly and we have not had a single outage since we switched (to RIEDEL) from our MPLS. Riedel manages our network infrastructure and Internet connectivity, so we can focus on providing the best possible support to our customers. The company negotiated new agreements with our last-mile providers on our behalf and helped us save on unnecessary telecommunications costs. We reinvest this saved money in managed services. So we’re accomplishing a lot more with the same amount of spending.“

Linus Linder, Head of IT at Müller - Die lila Logistik AG

Riedel connects two worlds for us: Broadcast and IT.

„When it comes to broadcasting a first-class event like Formula 1, a strong and reliable partnership is an absolute must. We have been working with Riedel’s RiLink for many years. As soon as the fiber cable is connected to our production unit, all systems wake up, immediately connect to their hosts and start sending files or messages.“
