Remote Post-Production Solution Enables Turnkey On-Location Video Editing and Compression

CET Universe, a leading provider of services, systems, and products for professional audio and video production, today announced that its Remote Station™, a turnkey on-location post-production system, will be used for the live webcast of the 11th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards, on Thursday, November 11, at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. Univision Network will carry the event live from 8–11 p.m. ET/PT (7 p.m. Central).

The Remote Station will provide video editing and compression capabilities for the live webcast, which will shoot on the file-based Panasonic P2 format. The Remote Station, consisting of a road-ready HD editing system in an Anvil style road case, was custom configured by CET Universe’s Director of Business Development, Nathan Adams. Each Remote Station includes a customized, latest-generation Apple Mac Pro running Final Cut Pro Studio 3 and compression software for faster-than-real-time encoding and compression. The latest version of Remote Station was designed specifically for use in small-footprint areas such as production trucks and hotel rooms, for example.

“We designed Remote Station for high-volume, high-quality assets in a rapid turnaround environment, and the Latin GRAMMYS show is an ideal venue for our system,” said Nathan Adams, director of business development for CET Universe. “Live event programming today demands multi-platform distribution, and Remote Station affords production teams all the benefits of a full post-production facility on the road.”
