For more than 20 years, LinkedIn Learning (formerly known as Lynda.com) has produced thousands of hours of high-resolution video tutorials for it’s more than 7,000 courses for business, software, technology and creative skills.

To keep up with the ever-increasing demand, producers with the LinkedIn Live Action Production team knew they needed to streamline and upgrade their workflow to record and distribute such copious quantities of content in 4K and HD video.

The company selected R&S VENICE 4K and VENICE 2U ingest and playout platforms for live capture and delivery of the network’s instructional programming to its internal SAN (storage area network) for editorial and distribution.

LinkedIn Learning has 12 channels of R&S VENICE 4K and 12 channels of R&S VENICE 2U in-studio recording from its 12 stages in Carpinteria, CA and newly added stage in New York City. Green screen and live video capture is produced daily within the LinkedIn Learning stages.

The Live Action Recording team of LinkedIn Learning captures the content of instructors and their instructional material via HD and 4K cameras and recording gear. LinkedIn Learning provides video instruction on a subscription basis in the areas of business, creative and technology, as taught by expert instructors.
