Cloud-Produktionen: Vom Zukunftsthema zur „State of the Art“-Technologie


LiveU treibt die Cloud-Revolution mit smarten Tools und Best Practices voran

Seit vielen Jahren schon reden die Visionäre der Videobranche von „Cloud-Produktionen“. Doch erst in den letzten Monaten finden Cloud-basierte Produktionstools verstärkte Anwendung. Die Coronapandemie und der damit einhergehende Ruf nach Remote Work und Kostenreduzierung haben den Siegeszug der virtuellen Videoverarbeitung zweifelsohne angetrieben. Nicht nur immer mehr Anwender nutzen die Cloud-Tools. Auch die technologischen Angebote selbst wurden immer vielgestaltiger, ausgereifter und einfacher zu bedienen. Branchenexperten dürfte es wenig überraschen, dass LiveU – Vorreiter auf dem Gebiet IP-basierten Videoproduktion und -übertragung – schon früh in die Entwicklung von Cloud-Technologien eingestiegen ist und heute eine Reihe von Lösungen im Portfolio hat, die sich bereits im Praxis-Einsatz bewährt haben.
