While a lot of today’s applications are automated in news, sports are still primarily a manual process. Because broadcast is a one direction to many signals with no back-channel return, limited interactive services exist. What limited use of interactive services exist is primarily in OTT applications.
Goals and Objectives
Automated remote cloud-based live production will be the norm, with exceptions being high-profile tier 1 events. More live news and sports will be produced, distributed, and monetized via OTT rather than through traditional managed services such as from cable and satellite services.

Use Case Summary
Live remote production for news, sports or other live programming where cloud-based services provide a compelling return on investment, high resource utilization, and overall value. Expands programming to consumers by offering a lower-cost economical way to produce lower-tiered events not normally on traditional television.
