The New Control Room? Production Facilities in the Age of Remote Production and The Cloud

Centralized control rooms, trailers, and even fly packs are the established norm across collegiate athletic departments. As the greater broadcast industry evolves to utilize more remote (or REMI) production and cloud-based workflows, in what ways does that make us rethink the facilities that we call home? From switchers to comms to replay, graphics, audio, and everything in between, live production leaders share their takes on new flexibilities available in live production.
