The Game is Back On: Rethinking the Sports Broadcast Workflow

Stadiums were left empty as sporting events around the world were cancelled, postponed, or played behind closed doors for most of 2020. The world of sports suddenly froze in Spring 2020, but the thaw has begun. First came the titans of European football, then the heroes of American soccer. By August, most franchises were resuming play or planning their upcoming season with coronavirus-related restrictions. And as professional sports leagues gradually return to the ballparks, pitches, and rinks of the world, so too do the sports media professionals tasked with capturing each game. Everything is different about live sports this year, save the rulebook. Sports broadcasters and production teams are finding new ways to adapt to an ever-changing environment. Most prominent and profitable among these changes is the new fan experience.

If you’re used to being in an office and editing from a computer with high-speed shared storage, then working on those projects from home can be a challenge.

Luckily, if you’re using ShareBrowser and you find yourself needing to work remotely, your EVO storage server is already doing something that’s about to help you out in a big way.

Remote Editing Tips and Preparedness

Remote editing is more viable than ever, but it still has its limitations. Gathering footage, particularly on short notice or for an unforeseen amount of time away from work, requires a significant amount of foresight and planning. The file sizes are likely too unwieldy for online transfer, and getting footage from one editor to another would nearly halt the post-production workflow. The good news is that there are options that are already compatible with EVO right now.
