Case Study – Remote Video Editing
Making a movie is hard, but when a central character is none other than the Northern Lights and remote Yukon locations, it’s not possible without the help of outside videographers and filmmakers. With this sweeping backdrop the biopic titled “1,000 Days, The Meaning of Life” required a new approach to remote filmmaking. Based on the real-life experience of Asa Zoesman, and his vision to make the first co-created movie, it meant identifying the best encoder for streaming live while maintaining exceptionally high quality. The VersaStreamer 4K stood out for being easy to use and offering exceptional video quality, while being compact. This made it perfect as the production 4K encoder for anyone needing to stream video for review purposes.
The vision of Asa and his team was to create the infrastructure so that multiple creators could contribute to the movie production remotely just as if they were in the same location. Because the final destination for the production will be IMAX screens, traditional streaming video solutions were not possible for use. Working closely with AVID, Red, Neumann, and Sound Devices, Asa determined that the VersaStreamer 4K could perform both live streaming as well as local capture of content when a sufficiently fast Internet connection was not available. Combining exceptional quality with ease of use, allowed the team to move past the technology so that they could focus on the story
Unique for its compact size and one-button go-live operation, the VersaStreamer line of streaming encoders are ideal for remote video production to enable better streaming experiences and storytelling. VersaStreamer 4K lived up to its design by providing the most versatile streaming solution possible for Asa Zoesman and team so that they could tell the story regardless of where any one contributor was in the world.
