BBC R&D is remote producing a series of gigs that are being live-streamed online from the Great Exhibition of the North
BBC Research & Development (BBC R&D) is live-streaming a series of performances from BBC 6 Music and BBC Music Introducing to the BBC Arts Live page using unmanned 4K cameras.
It is using components of two BBC R&D projects – SOMA (single operator mixing application) and IP Studio – to enable the live, remote production of the performances.
The gigs are being captured live from the Sage, Gateshead as part of the Great Exhibition of the North, by ‘unoperated’ 4K UHD cameras.
Various crops/cut-outs from the 4K wide shot are used to create ‘virtual cameras’, which are vision mixed live by a remote operator.
The live streaming began over the weekend and continues through to the end of next weekend.
