Storm provided fully remote post work on both of the BBC’s Eurovision programmes last week including remote collaboration between multiple edits and locations and same-day delivery.

Both the shows had to be turned around in one day for a prime time slot the same evening.

For The A-Z of Eurovision on BBC Two, Storm provided full post-production, from ingest right through to delivery with remote services including file Ingest, tape Ingest, archive management, offline, VO, audio mix, online, grading, GFX, QC and delivery.

For the offline, editors connected directly to Storm’s Avids via remote software, using NVIDIA accelerated ultra low-latency remote desktops. The editors could then access the Nexis shared environment and the system also had EPs collaborating in real-time with the editor’s Avid. This was tied up with conference calling between editor and producer.

For the grade, in-house editors were connected directly to the onlines at the facility, finishing on DaVinci Resolve and having access to the shared network. There was a grade 1 monitor set-up locally at the editor’s home while also outputting live timeline directly to Execs and EPs, using a remote desktop solution.

The VO to picture session was also set-up remotely between Rylan Clark-Neal’s house and Storm’s dubbing mixer’s home studio. 

The audio mix for BBC One’s Come Together was also completed remotely from the dubbing mixer’s home studio, with ability to make instant changes during review.
