There have been a lot of changes to production workflows since 2020. Creative teams had to adjust to working from home, and in many cases this was done by spinning up (sometimes hastily) remote desktop utilities or a VPN server with little time for due diligence on how it would affect the team’s workflow.
De Tune, a global industry-leading media and entertainment company, chose Tata Communications’ media network and cloud services to drive its global production operations.
The world’s greatest dog show, Crufts, and the organisation behind it, The Kennel Club, has expanded social and digital output over recent years. Keen to shine a light on lesser known parts of its organisation and show, 2020’s focus was on the Young Kennel Club. Sunset+Vine was chosen to live stream the entire programme of the Young Kennel Club Ring across all four days of Crufts 2020, collaborating with us to do so.

２０２０年、オペラ公演のライブ映像配信を主導する為に私は台湾に入った。しかし新型コロナウイルス感染症の予期せぬ急速な世界的拡大のため、突如台湾国内の特定の建物への入館も外国人には禁じられ、不幸な事に私が目的とするオペラハウスもそれに含まれていた。もはや顔を合わせてライブ配信の指導ができなくなった私は、ホテルの一室で配信に用いる機器の設定や試験を綿密に済ませ、その機器をオペラ公演現場のカメラチームに手渡す他に取る手段はなかった。カメラチームは、その機器を簡単に数本のケーブル接続を行い、配信開始のボタンを押すというシンプルな手順で見事に彼らにとって初めてのライブ映像配信を成し遂げてくれた。これは弊社 “SIMPLE LaaS” (Livestream-as-a-Service)が生れた瞬間でもあった。

Over the past decade the media industry has hailed the adoption of the cloud as a way of introducing new efficiencies, as well as improving content protection and business continuity. For many media companies so far, the cloud has been all about storage. But of course, storing content is far from the only thing the media industry does. In some ways, the current iteration of the cloud, let’s call it Cloud 1.0, is not built for the needs of complex media workflows and what comes next must address these concerns. So where is cloud today and where is it heading, and could Cloud 2.0 be on the horizon?
Put your hand up if you’re bored of virtual events! Most of you are sitting at your home desk with your hands held high.

Cloud playout is not a new idea; it’s been discussed in our industry for at least a decade, including early attempts at creating and supplying solutions. But it’s only more recently that it has become a reality and it’s certainly an important part of the future. Globecast is leading the way.
