After testing the solution out, Woodbine decided on TVU Remote Production System (RPS). TVU RPS uses a standard Internet connection to send perfectly synchronized live video signals to a remote studio location for at-home/REMI production. It is a solution designed to leverage users’ existing studio infrastructures so that they can minimize the amount of equipment and number of crew members that they need to bring onsite.
By setting up a TVU RPS encoder at the Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto, and a TVU RPS decoder at the Milton facility, Woodbine easily sent live footage from the tracks to the studio 50 km (31 mi) away for production. The final product would be pushed out to TSN, a major Canadian sports channel, that would distribute the live broadcast across the country. The company was able to achieve smooth and quick transmission of high-quality video without the overhead required for a truck or an air pack.
