As countries around the world launch their strategies for reopening their economies, production companies, networks, and unions are all working to define and implement processes that will shape film and television productions for months, and perhaps years. The intent of this document is to expand on the industry’s new production guidelines, specifically for on set filming or production, and remote video village setup and management to demonstrate how our products and technology can play a crucial role in creating and maintaining a safe production environment. Our goal is to provide useful information and recommendations to the teams and organizations working to establish these new protocols.
Teradek’s mission has always been to develop products and solutions that improve productivity and efficiency for on set production and streaming content. Simply put, we want to make the process of creating content easier. Founded 11 years ago, Teradek has sold over 100,000 real-time video transmission systems (Bolts) and codec products (Cube, Bond, VidiU, T-Rax). Oscar winners, OTT providers, film studios, rental companies, documentarians, corporations, government agencies, and thousands of crew members around the world use Teradek products. But most use only one or two of our products at a time.
To build and maintain a safe production environment, the combination and integration of Teradek products provide the foundation needed to maintain distance, offer collaboration tools, ensure the safety of both talent and crew, and deliver new content with minimal disruption or added cost. The products we will highlight will work just as they always have. But when implemented together, they will provide you with the capabilities for a safe and productive shoot across a new production paradigm: Off set, Near set, and even On set.
