Remote Production

In response to COVID-19, Zest4.TV has designed and built bespoke Master Control Rooms to manage incoming feeds, mix with VTs, graphics and other sources for re-distribution. The MCR is built around traditional hardware and new IP connectivity including NDI, Dante and SRT. We have a large scale ISO re-recording (with matrix routing) and more complex audio monitoring / mixing set-up as standard.
External callers without any typical broadcast equipment at home, can be brought into the MCR using just their home PCs, and we talk you through the rest.
We can offer bespoke hardware solutions as “care packages” including cameras, microphones and encoders to contributors. Very useful for more VIP contributors with the higher quality needs.
This solution means we can be end-platform agnostic, if you have a preferred in-house platform, that can receive an RMTP stream. We can also stream to social media accounts, webinar platforms, or inject into a Zoom meeting.
