Step up your remote broadcasting game with MediaSilo


In the ever-changing world of broadcasting, remote projects have transformed the industry. The pandemic showed us what was possible, with production moving from inside studios to live locations and even peoples’ homes, using techniques that may include remote desktop software and cloud platforms such as Zoom and Amazon Web Services (AWS).  

Several elements are needed to execute remote broadcasting successfully, including a reliable internet connection, quality broadcast equipment and web-based tools for collaborating on video editing, graphics and more. Broadcasters also face continuously shifting, imminent deadlines, so streamlining workflows and sharing files quickly is imperative. That’s why employing the right collaboration tool is so important. 

Why team collaboration is essential for remote broadcasts  

Remote broadcasts require capturing massive amounts of audio and video content from remote locations and sending it all to a central facility or studio. The remote production team must collaborate efficiently with that facility to ensure a seamless broadcast. 

Digital video transmission enables the delivery of high-quality content and timely updates to their audiences, regardless of the geographical distance between facilities. That’s why having the right equipment is imperative for the success of a remote broadcast.

In this industry, creating and editing content quickly is nonnegotiable. If a single copy of media gets lost or destroyed, finding something else to plug in for that evening’s broadcast in a pinch can cause a frenzy, with producers and editors scrambling to fill the slot. That’s why resilience is essential, along with having alternate media available online at all times. If a producer needs to pivot to a new story at the last minute, they must have access to all the required assets without adding the unnecessary delays of searching for the proper files. 

Employing the right video collaboration software can increase your team’s overall efficiency and help establish clear goals. Sharing information quickly and easily saves you the most precious resource available in broadcasting – time. Additionally, when your team sees the results of their work in real-time, it can help boost morale and strengthen the culture.
