The world of sports suddenly froze in Spring 2020, but the thaw has begun.
First came the titans of European football, then the heroes of American soccer. By August, most franchises were resuming play or planning their upcoming season with coronavirus-related restrictions. And as professional sports leagues gradually return to the ballparks, pitches, and rinks of the world, so too do the sports media professionals tasked with capturing each game.
Everything is different about live sports this year, save the rulebook. Sports broadcasters and production teams are finding new ways to adapt to an ever-changing environment. Most prominent and profitable among these changes is the new fan experience.

It’s true – traditional broadcasting of live content, such as sports events, is getting more and more expensive. At least, it will be if you’re still utilising expensive outside broadcasting (OB) methods. Securing media rights is costly enough – the last thing you want is the expense of sending out a large portion of your broadcasting operation to a different country, with huge technical teams and transmission suites in tow. You need a solution that allows you to produce and playout content from a centralised broadcast location, with low latency and high reliability. With less expense, you’ll be able to focus on providing richer content to your audience. That’s where Remote Playout comes in.
