Downtime on set is an issue that keeps production engineers awake at night...literally. They’re often stuck in the studio fixing technical issues to get productions back on-air while everyone else stands around or is asleep. There is always a worry that a critical piece of the production workflow will cut out in the middle of a shoot causing the production to come to a halt. Backup systems, redundancy and additional engineers on set are deployed to help reduce downtime, but we all know that every year there will inevitably be a few sleepless nights for engineers.
We wanted to know what technologists in our industry are excited about and expect (or hope) to see in 2022, so we asked the NAB Technology staff and a few other luminaries in the industry if they had anything to share. They did. This compilation of predictions is our way to wrap up 2021 by looking forward to 2022.
