The use of cloud processing to streamline the production environment is a key developing theme across the broadcast industry.

The access to cloud resources forms a key and powerful component within the distributed production tool kit and promises greater agility in the utilisation of both technical and human resources.

We are leveraging technology from across the Audiotonix group to provide focused solutions where specific brand control surfaces and user interfaces remain true to their workflow paradigms and operator user base.

Over the past twelve months, we have been working closely with a number of key clients to prove our technologies and together develop a greater understanding of cloud workflows and the challenges they present.

Whilst not presented as a case study specific to any of the concept events undertaken with partners, this outline aims to give an overview of some of the learnings from our joint experiences.

This theoretical outline shows an example distributed production environment making use of a number of remote technologies including cloud-based audio mixing resources.

At the Venue

  • Audio sources are acquired via location microphones connected to a Calrec RP1 (Remote Production unit).
  • Edge processing used to create Audio IFB’s for commentators mixed at venue on Calrec RP1 with control on the Console Surface operated by the A1 in the Control Room.
  • Media transport to other locations through Dante Connect.

Mix Position in Control Room

  • Cloud audio mix processing controlled on Calrec Argo Console Surface and operated by the A1 at Mix Position in Control Room.
  • Monitor feed allows confidence monitoring of Cloud processing resources utilising a Dante WebRTC.


Mix Position in Control Room

In the AWS Cloud

  • AWS Cloud instance running Audiotonix New Heights audio DSP mixing engine and control.
  • Large-scale audio DSP mixing engine.
    • 256 processing paths (128 inputs + 128 outputs)
    • Full immersive formats – 5.1, 5.1.4, 7.1.4
  • Cloud DSP interfaces Dante and NDI to meet interoperability requirements.
  • Cloud-to-Ground media transport via Dante Connect.
  • Cloud-to-Cloud production sources and destinations catered for with NDI and Dante streams.

The interoperability and flexibility of this distributed production environment used a wide range of Cloud resources, edge processing and remote connectivity.

This allows broadcasters to manage their production, technical and human resources in a very agile and cost-effective way.
