    Tuesday, July 20, 2021 06:30 – 8:00 PM

    The Pandemic brought on a wave of new ways broadcasters needed to work remotely.   The REMI https://www.broadcastmgmt.com/remi/what-is-remi-production/ model for sports production has been with many of our television networks for a number of years now. And several studios in the market are likewise utilizing and have been providing live news from bureaus and remote locations by way of “remote virtual consoles” over great distances.

    Beyond, the REMI model for Sports production, broadcast engineers were suddenly tasked with getting live TV on the air at a quality that was watchable.   While production staff was working from home or spread out within a facility for social distancing, the many challenges of mixing audio remotely became apparent.  

    How can I mix remotely”?   Was a question heard regularly since March of 2020.  Calrec has several ways you can achieve this depending on your broadcast requirements, infrastructure and how remote you need to be?    

    Rob Lewis, US Technical Sales Manager, will walk us through several example workflows of how to achieve this.

    Rob is the National Technical Sales manager at Calrec Audio. Rob has 25 years experience in the professional audio industry, including international sales, product marketing, and as a freelance audio engineer.
