Malaysia’s Talking Grace rolling on despite travel restrictions
Talking Grace, a weekly online talk show in Malaysia, is deploying the TVU Producer cloud-based live video production platform, the TVU Anywhere app, and the TVU Partyline real-time collaboration and engagement platform to connect the show host with guests around the country.
AB Roll, the Malaysian film and TV production company that produces Talking Grace, has been able to expand its potential interview reach across Malaysia without having to travel. Sazrul Yacub, Technical Director of AB Roll, explained, “With TVU, we can do the show even if we are located in different locations.
“Remote production is much easier.”
Video of the hosts and guests is captured using TVU Anywhere on mobile devices. Participants communicate with each other without sync or latency issues through TVU Partyline, with the live feeds pushed to TVU Producer for production and distribution onto social media platforms. AB Roll also uses TVU Producer to add graphics and effects throughout the show, including lower-thirds and the display of multiple video windows.
Moving forward, AB Roll is considering using the TVU workflow for remote production events and other programming.
“With TVU, we were able to pull off the talk show despite the location challenges. TVU enabled us to produce a show despite the restriction to travel. We can still have live interviews using TVU Anywhere,” said Sazrul.
