Connecting OB will offer video tutorials and discussion of various aspects of outside broadcast production and workflow

Axon Digital Design has launched an online community for professionals in the outsidbe broadcast industry. “Connecting OB” has been built to allow discussion of challenges of OB control and monitoring and the sharing of best practice and techniques.

The “Connecting OB” forum hopes to address the most common technical challenges in control and monitoring for outside broadcast productions with a mix of topical videos posted online each month and open discussions across social media. Key areas to be covered include 4K/Ultra HD routing, control interfaces, complex workflow monitoring, tail-board routing and video over IP.

“Through this initiative, Axon is building an online community where the unique challenges of live OB production can be openly discussed and ideas exchanged to improve workflow,” said Axon CEO Jan Eveleens. “Open collaboration is at the very heart of how we develop and integrate our infrastructure solutions, so we’re excited to be connecting together experts in this field and to see the results of the group’s discussions.”

The “Connecting OB” website - - went live today and visitors can now sign up to be the first to see video series as they are released. The first episode, focusing on 4K/Ultra HD routing and hosted by Axon application specialist Geoff Love, will be posted on the forum next week.

Axon has also invited interested professionals to join the discussion the Connecting OB group on Linkedin.
