Our Remote Productions department provided three cameras, mics, and lighting for a 2-person interview. The DCI HD1 satellite truck uplinked all 3 paths to allow the show director to choose the cameras, and also downlinked a network return, all of which went through the DCI Teleport back in Washington. Using multiplexer and DVB-S2 technology, DCI was able to use roughly half the bandwidth as a typical DVB-S satellite truck with single channel carriers, and still deliver a higher-quality video signal. Since this client does not own full-time satellite space leases, using half the bandwidth resulted in a visible cost savings. As highly experienced satellite engineers, we are able to suggest new ways of doing transmissions to save our clients money.
This was a complete DCI production that showcased how all three departments of our company can work together to bring great value and convenience to our clients. Contact DCI to find out more about our remote production and satellite services.
