 James Robinson, Director, Hitomi, with his crystal ball for 2020

Remote production is transforming the way broadcasters and producers cover sport, and is sure to be a dominant trend in 2020. By carrying all the camera and microphone signals back to base for live production and post, sports coverage can be crafted better, with more engagement for the viewer and cost-efficiencies for the production company through higher equipment utilisation. Global events can be – and are – covered from a single, dedicated facility for consistency and ease of distribution. The world of e-sports led the way in remote production, and now traditional sports are scrambling to catch up to reap the benefits.

Avoid misalignment

and the disputes that follow


When a lip sync error occurs on a live broadcast everyone in the chain worries if they are responsible. This can lead to some unfortunate disputes. With Hitomi MatchBox, accurate synchronisation on departure can be demonstrated, as can misalignment on arrival. Evidence based data can mitigate liability.

    Christoph Moll Technical Manager, Outside Broadcast TVN
  • Our MatchBoxes are an absolutely essential piece of equipment which enables us to quickly analyse where any delays are in the chain.

    Dan McDonnell Managing Director Timeline
  • With 4K transmissions, there is a relatively high processing delay for video compared with the audio. The only way to measure the discrepancy out of the HEVC encoder is by using a Hitomi MatchBox
