The efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the “at-home” production model, also known as “REMI” or “home run,” has transformed the sports production industry. By minimizing on-site equipment and crew, costs are greatly reduced while professional production quality is maintained. However, significant up-front development and implementation costs have limited the use of this leading-edge technology to only the largest networks and sports organizations.
D2 Productions, the leader in high-value live sports production, is proud to announce the general availability of Journey Connect, our at-home production system. D2 has brought all of the pieces together, under one roof, in a system that makes broadcast quality at-home production not only possible, but also stunningly affordable for anyone.
- Production – D2 has leveraged its substantial live sports production resources to provide professional facilities and crew throughout. Our on-site resources include full camera packages, announcer booth setups, and more, while our control rooms contribute full graphics, audio, and tape/replay capabilities.
- Transmission – D2 has developed Journey Transport, a next-generation internet video transmission technology. Journey Transport lies at the heart of our at-home system. It excels at high-motion, low-latency broadcast quality encoding. What’s more, Journey Transport’s first-mile performance is unequalled. Requiring minimal on-site setup, it easily traverses firewalls and adapts to variable network conditions, as you can see in the specification documentation which you can see in PDF format using software as sodapdf.
- Connectivity – D2 has designed and built customized field units to enable a seamless connection between home and site locations. Critical components like comms, camera tallies, return video feeds, IFB, talkback, and scoreboard data are all included, which permit a seamless production experience and allow announcers to be on-site for the best possible game coverage.
