@Mom2Dogs , Things change.  I don't know how QVC is going to handle the future, but . I'm guessing if it saves money many businesses will cut out travel and other expenses.

@QVC kitty 1 May be for the short term, but I remember many years ago businesses tried that concept when they only had telecon capability and they finally decided the extra expense was worth it.  I think the same will happen with zooming and skyping.  The signal is always dropping out and the video quality is often bad, especially on QVC. Some of the news channels usually have better video quality, probably provide better cameras to their staff, but there are still drop-outs.  If a year of online school is any indication, I don't think Zooming and Skyping is the future for business.

 

I will be glad to get vendors back on-set.

I honestly don't mind the skyping.  I haven;t had problem one with it once they got over a few hiccups at the beginning. There will always be technology issues but who cares. 

 

I agree if it saves the company money they will continue to do it for a long time.

 

I am ok with that.

Re: IF THE HOSTS CAN BE TOGETHER......

My husband used to travel every other week for business.  He has been working from home using Zoom meetings and Skype since Covid shut everything down.  Business has NOT been down at all for his company.  His bosses have decided that travel will be very limited in the future in order to save the company money.  My husband is fine with that. 

Office workers are encouraged to work in the office one day a week, but that is optional.  He will continue working from home to avoid the commute.

Pennsylvania is scheduled to lift the mandated social distancing on Memorial Day.  Masks will still be mandated.

 

I don't think QVC will want to have Hosts do presentations with masks on.  I am guessing that the hosts and vendors will still not be able to be close up and personal for a while.

 

Once the mandated mask requirement is lifted...perhaps.

 

There are different rules in each state.

Re: IF THE HOSTS CAN BE TOGETHER......

So why can't a host and a vendor be maskless and separated by 6 feet?

 

Plenty of other television productions are doing this.

 

They'll just need to stop the ridiculously phony hugs and kisses.

I'm okay with VENDOR ONLY segments.  I have seen several of theses presentations with NO host.  Sometimes it is actually a relief-it is better than host and vendor.

I can't understand why many of the network news shows I watch (from NYC) still have only one anchor in studio with the other anchors and reporters remote.  All the guests are still remote also.

 

Yet some of the shows on the same network have three anchors at the same desk in studio.  🤨
