Facilitating Remote Learning in Education

Before COVID, most educational establishments were already using lecture capture, and were experimenting with flipped classroom delivery. The pandemic has made both teaching practices very much the norm. But the mechanics of delivery have become more complex - it’s not just a case of using YouTube or Facebook.

How to run a live multi-location production remotely over the internet

There’s no need to explain why the requirements for live streaming and remote production have hugely increased over the past 12 months. The former is relatively straight forward for even the most technically challenged of us, at its most basic level within a few seconds anyone can be live streaming direct from their smartphone out to the wider world. At the other end of the scale we have incredibly powerful 4K, 10-bit HDR, HEVC live streaming encoders such as the Teradek Prism to deliver the highest quality feasible for high-end mission critical productions – there’s a way to live stream to suit all levels of users and budgets. But how about the latter, how can you run a live, multi-presenter production where participants are spread in different locations, even continents - all remotely? And how can you do that and actually make it look professional, engaging, and dynamic?

Pearl Nano - v4.16.0

This upgrade brings support for ultraefficient H.265/HEVC encoding and, available as an optional feature add-on, the ability to stream and record in 4K.

  • H.265/HEVC encoding: Reduces file sizes and bandwidth requirements by half compared to H.264/AVC, or doubles the quality of video content without adding to storage or bandwidth use.
  • Optional 4K feature add-on: Enables customers to upgrade Pearl Nano with the ability to stream and record in 4K.

These two new features pair nicely: H.265/HEVC can halve the size of your customers' content while preserving the image quality that makes 4K video something to behold.
