How SportsGrid grew exponentially by integrating IP-powered cloud production and distribution workflows  

When the pandemic forced SportsGrid’s studios to close, the production team needed a new way to produce and distribute live content. They quickly began using LTN’s cloud production services and intelligent IP transport and distribution to deliver 18 hours a day of live sports betting coverage in broadcast quality with ultra-low latency. SportsGrid’s ability to provide engaging content during the pandemic helped them grow to reach more than 100 million households across all major digital platforms and channels. 

Charles Theiss and Rick Young discuss how using cloud-based automation and workflows can help content providers reach more markets, platforms, and audiences without significant capex.  


Remote production workflows that seemed to be optional pre-pandemic are now considered essential. Telstra has been on the forefront of remote production development. Since 2017, Telstra delivers international remote production by transporting content of all value from venues to remote facilities between Asia Pacific, North America and Europe. Join Carl Petch, Head of Architecture & Integration at Telstra Broadcast Services, and Steven Dargham, Head of Major Events at Telstra Broadcast Services, as they discuss the benefits of international remote production.
