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.
- 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.
