A Virtual Studio Interview, Bridged by a Quicklink


A virtual studio interview between a top European soccer manager based in a London studio and an interviewer based in a Dublin studio recently came together with relative ease.

It’s thanks to technology put in play by Quicklink Studio (ST55).

For the production, Quicklink Studio (ST55) was used to provide a conversation between London, Dublin and the South Yorkshire-based Master Control Room (MCR), located in the English city of Sheffield.

Using Scarlett audio interfaces into laptops based in London and Dublin, Quicklink Studio (ST55) facilitated a bi-directional Conference call between both parties as well as the MCR.

To achieve a successful REMI virtual studio production, both the interview and interviewee were carefully positioned in a green screened environment to allow for a virtual backdrop to be applied.

To allow for natural conversation, monitors were strategically placed at the other’s eye-line, to make it appear as though they were making eye contact throughout the interview.

“Quicklink was a vital part of the virtual production workflow,” said Jay Rozanski, Creative Director at oXyFire Media.

Hannah Chitty, Producer at Chrome Productions, added, “This project encountered a few
challenges of which we managed to overcome, however the results provided by oXyFire and
the Quicklink solutions were fantastic.”

Quicklink Studio (ST55) enables the gathering of high-quality video and audio contributions from a laptop or mobile device with no apps or software installations required. Contributors can be invited by an operator to contribute via SMS, WhatsApp, email or by generating a shareable URL link. From the Quicklink Manager, the operator is then able to remotely control and configure the contributor’s device camera, microphone, speaker settings, resolution, data bandwidth and latency if required.
