Media Distributors Remote Station Enables TV Guide to Produce Simultaneous Telecast and Web Streaming of Oscars Red CarpetRemote Post-Production Solution Provides Turnkey On-Location Video Editing And Compression for TV Guide Channel Red Carpet (February 23, 2009)
The Remote Station provided video editing and compression capabilities for the live telecast and webcast stream, which was available live on both the TV Guide Channel and on www.tvguide.com from 3:00 to 5:00 pm PST, from the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.
The Remote Station, consisting of a road-ready HD editing system secured in two Anvil style road cases, was installed by Media Distributors’ Nathan Adams in the Kodak Theatre. Each Remote Station includes a high-end Panasonic SD/HD-SDI video monitor; Genelec reference speakers; Mackie audio mixer, and customized, latest-generation Apple Mac Pros running Final Cut Studio 2. The detachable accessory-case lid features folding legs to form a comfortable and sturdy editing desk for on-location use.
Using the Remote Station, TV Guide could quickly turn around specially-edited segments for TVGuide.com, offering a distinct t.v. and web experience in a simultaneous environment.
"The live production industry recognizes that its premium assets are produced under extreme circumstances, and the value of events such as the TV Guide Red Carpet telecast is tremendous. The Remote Station was designed specifically for this kind of production," said Steve Klein, CEO of Media Distributors. "Remote post-production is no longer a vision, but a reality; clients can perform flawless compression and editing tasks on the road in real-time."
