SVG SportsTech On Demand: The Video Call Center's Larry Thaler on Bringing Smartphone-Based Video Interviews to the Masses
In an effort to keep the broadcast-technology community informed this spring, throughout April, SVG is hosting a series of SportsTech On Demand video interviews with executives from the industry’s top technology vendors discussing their latest product releases and company news. Our Brandon Costa sat down with Larry Thaler, CEO, The Video Call Center, about the company’s efforts.
The Video Call Center is making it possible to leverage the world’s billions of smartphones to extend reach, lower costs, and facilitate location-agnostic workflows for live production. Even prior to the coronavirus outbreak made this the go-to method for content creation, Fox Sports, Major League Baseball, The Madison Square Garden Company, the WWE, Discovery/TLC, and other news and entertainment producers have used the VCC to achieve high-quality, IP-based, live remote video connections to support shows without crews on-site, centralized studios, or control rooms, as requirements dictate. The company’s patented technologies facilitate long duration, stable, lag-free, two-way connections that encourage natural conversation between participants, who see and hear each other in real-time using any device via mobile data or WiFi, anywhere in the world.
