The BridgeX quad network bridge interface enhances remote production capabilities
Australia - Broadcast and streaming rental specialist Gameday Hire has expanded its Green-GO setup by investing in a BridgeX quad network bridge interface, enhancing its remote production capabilities.
The Sydney-based company, headed up by Australian broadcast industry veteran Andy Liell, has heavily invested in Green-GO products over the last year with support from Rod McKinnon at Event Communications Australia.
Gameday Hire’s team travels across Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific, often delivering outside broadcast technology in remote locations that require rock solid communications. Incorporating the BridgeX into their existing, extensive Green-GO comms system means that the company can massively improve comms for their remote production solutions.
One such project Gameday Hire provides ongoing solutions for is an Australian sporting code. With three control rooms and multiple LiveU-based field production kits around the country, the Gameday Hire facility covers up to 8 x 3 camera matches per week, which are broadcast live on a major streaming platform. The facility was built around Green-GO comms using Dante interfaces for local commentary and 4 Wire interface carried over LiveU for the remote camera comms.
The BridgeX solution is essentially 'plug and play' once configured. Standard Green-GO devices are switched into an ‘online’ mode and establish a connection over public internet back to the BridgeX. Latency varies between 400-800ms from studio to remote, which the team says is very manageable for this application.
BridgeX also enables the use of the Green-GO app, which turns Android/iOS devices into a mobile Green-GO user.
