Berlin Hamburg Remote

Telekom Streetgig Klassik

Projects · In Memory Of Tobias Lehmann.

Some years ago, this would have been my personal nightmare:

The scenario involves some of the best talent in the world playing Beethoven in the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg. It would be my job to deliver a live sound quality that represents the incredible ability of this orchestra. And I am controlling everything 250 kilometres away.

 Today, things have changed; ‘remote control' is a regular occurrence – as it allows for many more benefits in quality, technology and budget.

 I’m now sitting in the best possible environment; Teldex Studios in Berlin and I’m with my renowned colleague and multiple Grammy winner, Tonmeister Tobias Lehmann. We’re working live and remote, but together we craft a live sound that has an enhanced dynamic and detail.

 We produced Street Gig Classics for Telekom Magenta and mixed the whole show remotely.

The difference in quality was audible for everyone to hear. Once again, the Remote Recording workflow added to the production value whilst saving time, travel costs and reducing our carbon footprint.

Since we refined our remote tech stack, we were even able to produce the whole show using consumer level internet and a mix of 5G, DSL and fibre connection. I’m stoked to see what we can achieve next with our remote system. We’re just at the beginning!

And many thanks to Tobias and Team Teldex. It was an honour once again to have you in the crew! And thanks again to Telekom Deutschland and Live Nation for using our Remote Recording, Mixing and Mastering process again.

RRN Wins IBC Innovation Award

RRN Wins IBC Innovation Award

Projects · "So proud to be part of the 'best of the best' - We've just won this year's 'IBC Innovation Award' with our remote production 'Around the World in 80ms'. It's a tech stack that allows us to control and direct any production with talent connected from all over the world.

My team at Remote Recording Network and our fellow partners from Riedel Communications are so pleased to receive this award for the joint project.

Our team connected camera operators, lighting designers, video directors and sound engineers scattered across the globe, proving once and for all that it is possible to control an entire music event production remotely. I want to thank TV Skyline and Riedel and all of our supporting partners - video, lighting and sound directors and the forty piece crew around Europe and the US who made this happen," said Peter Brandt smiling proudly.

Dick Hobbs, chair of the IBC2021 Innovation Awards Judging panel, "We saw some outstanding innovation submitted for the awards this year. On behalf of my fellow judges, congratulations to the finalists and winners, for being very much the 'best of the best'!

Beethoven X Artificial Intelligence meets Remote Mixing.

World Premiere

Beethoven X Artificial Intelligence meets Remote Mixing.

Projects · On behalf of Telekom Deutschland and Live Nation, Remote Mixing recently produced the broadcast sound for the world premiere of the Beethoven KI Project and once again, set another milestone in remote control of high-quality production.

Whilst Dirk Kaftan conducted the Beethoven Orchestra Bonn performing movements three and four of the AI Project and the eighth Beethoven Symphony, we mixed the music streaming sound in real time in the ideal, acoustically calibrated control room of Tonstudio Boecker in the neighbouring city of Cologne.


Our Remote Recording Network Hub - powered by Riedel ROC - transported audio, video, communication and control data over secure connections. Consumer internet was used with a mix of Telekom 5G, DSL and fibre connection.

Our Team:
René Möller(Teldex) - Tonmeister
Peter Brandt - Balance engineer
Sven Raff - Recording engineer
Oliver Voges - Recording engineer
Karsten `Kasi`Heyn`(Riedel) - IT and communication engineer

Many thanks to Artur Koll (Yamaha), Jan Ehrlich (Direct Out), Henry Röhr (MTI) for the technical support and  Andreas Maier and his team.

Machiavelli Sessions

CHEMNITZ BERLIN REMOTE

Machiavelli Sessions

Projects · Here's another remote audio production that we want to tell you about.

This time we were at The Opera House in Chemnitz recording The Robert-Schumann-Philharmonie with conductor Gordon Hamilton and soloists Max Herre, Sugar MMFK and Nura for the `Machiavelli Sessions`.

260km away, our 'remote' production team was based in Ballsaal Studio, Berlin and included Tonmeister Tobias Lehmann(Teldex), engineer Alexandre Sitnikov with technical director Peter Brandt producing. 

Despite the distance, it really felt as though we were sitting in the room next door to the orchestra as the studio's acoustic environment and monitoring was perfectly-suited for this orchestral application. This appears to be one of several new benefits to remote location productions.

The event was produced take by take with flawless communications and audio transmission and with zero latency on the click tracks.

From the 'Green' aspect, we saved three crew travel, 12 nights of hotel accommodation, sound truck travel and the time-consuming setup of a control room. As a bonus we saved an average 800kg of carbon dioxide compared to the conventional location recording process. This includes the saved electricity used in the sound truck and fuel for crew travel and tractor-trailer.

Thank you: Sven Raff, Sven Kallenbach from 360X Media, Sebastian `Bub´ Wolf, Dominik Opiela, Adapoe and the great crew from the Chemnitz Opera House, Jens Lahnor from 2Bild in Cologne and Karsten`Kasi`Heyn from Riedel Communications.
