In an era where live streaming has developed into a critical tool for reaching global audiences, remote production has become a game-changer for production businesses. Imagine seamlessly broadcasting a live band performance with the precision of an in-studio setup, all managed from your office HQ. This isn’t the future, it’s happening right now all around the world. Two companies that production businesses rely on for reliable remote production are PTZOptics and Presonus.

The software features an easy to use “Share” button that allows you to share access with your team regardless of their location. Hive-Linked cameras are designed to connect directly to the cloud for remote pan, tilt and zoom connectivity. This means you can connect cameras to your Hive studio and ship them to a client site for a plug and play remote production experience. From your remote location, you can live stream and record video without having to spend time traveling or setting up additional hardware. This streamlined setup not only simplifies the production process but also reduces costs and setup time.

From here, your team can remotely share access to remotely mix audio in realtime. This flexibility ensures that your live stream maintains professional audio quality without needing an on-site audio team.

Distributed Teams and Talent Access: Remote production allows you to work with distributed teams, expanding your access to talent regardless of geographic location.
