DANTE Workflows in Sports Production

It allows a plethora of devices and audio formats to be connected seamlessly over a network. Once a DANTE network is deployed, you a free to pick and send audio from a pool of various devices. It is a very flexible workflow allowing connectivity like never before.

New ESPN Live at Home Workflows

In the COVID-19 era, sports networks have had to adapt with the changes including reducing on-site personnel. One such change and workflow that is currently being experimented with is talent at home for a remote production. Bounce Multimedia has been one of the few TV truck companies to test and experiment with ESPN's new Live From Home workflow. This workflow muxes director, producer, off-site stats, graphics, and other key staff audio and video down a single internet line to the announcers station. Utilizing DANTE and other off the shelf products, ESPN has created a unique system that integrates all parties and mobile tv truck units. The delay is minimal with advanced video and audio codecs used. We are proud to have successfully integrated the ESPN Live From Home kits and the workflow for successful productions for our ESPN Packagers and the ESPN Network.

St. Joseph Catholic in Port Arthur, TX Chooses Bounce Multimedia for Camera installation

We consider it a blessing to play a part in helping live stream the word to the masses on social media. This time, St. Joseph Catholic Church in Port Arthur, they needed a simple cost conscious system with ease of use and flexibility to stream mass out. We utilized the DataVideo PTC-140 Robotic PTZ Camera which has dual streaming capabilities and audio input to go to Facebook and YouTube simultaneously, while being controlled from any computer on the church network. We also dealt with the unique attic structure and created a new reliable hard-line path for both audio and internet from one end of the church building to the other. We completed the installation in two days from installation to final commissioning.

7 Things to look for Engineers of TV Trucks

Engineers can make or break the show and are often the unsung heroes of any TV Production. When choosing a TV Truck company, age of the truck may not always be the best predictor of a successful show. We've listed some questions to ask your sales consultant when choosing a TV production truck. TV Trucks offer the flexibility over fly packs due to the ability to plug your connects and get started, leaving you to focus on your production.

  • What is the engineer's experience? Credentials, are a must as well as experience with gear, workflows, type of productions and more. Learn the size and capabilities of previous production facilities an engineer has worked on.
  • What is the number of shows he or she has completed? Number of shows shouldn't be the sole determining factor but would allow you to learn more about the engineer and their strengths and weaknesses.
  • What is the highest show experience they have worked, is it relevant to your production? Our engineers have worked on the highest level of productions in the US with titles and credentials that would be more than adequate for your production. Contact us to discuss how our experience in the industry and professionalism can make the difference with a successful production.
  • Will he or she serve multiple roles/duties on your production? We understand budgets are tight, sometimes engineer staff will need to combine multiple roles. Our sales staff will work with you and your client to determine the best plan of action when it comes to tight budgets on productions.
  • Is the engineer often on this mobile unit? A truck engineer familiar with the truck will be more more agile in setting up a show on a particular truck leading to a more successful show.
  • Is the engineer familiar with the show and client/network requirements? Every network has different requirements for video format, audio channels, graphic machines computers, replay codec requirements, and camera compliment. Having an engineer familiar with the event helps make an easier day for the crew and a better experience for above the line personnel.
  • Does the engineer frequently game plan in the event of equipment failures or situations? Trucks experiences issues due to their traveling nature. A good engineer can recognize failures and quickly repair or work around them so the production doesn't suffer. Good engineers are problem solvers and hard workers and will work tirelessly in an event. Our crew regularly goes through the "What if's" and the "scenarios". Proper training allows our engineers to calmly work through an issue with our customers to create a satisfactory resolution. Our production truck units are well maintained and are constantly checked before during and after events for failures or maintenance issues.

We have heard countless stories of trucks touted as the best possible, but supplied inadequate engineering staff which results in a difficult experience on location and sometimes catastrophy. Carefully choosing your truck, sales staff, production coordinator, and engineer all spell a recipe of success for your event. We are happy to convey our level of competency and earn your trust. Contact us today to see how we can make a difference on your next production
