As the pandemic pushes remote technologies to the fore, cloud production is undergoing a baptism of fire. The move towards cloud-based production environments has been rapidly accelerated by the pandemic forcing the video ecosystem to quickly shift to a new way of working, using cloud-based production techniques to solve the physical separation of their workforce.
To see why perfect synchronization can never be achieved, we have to look at relativity, which is the physics of co-ordinate systems.
Time base correction is an enabling technology that crops up everywhere; not just in broadcasting.
The finite speed of light, and indeed of all communication has various impacts on broadcasting.
Live TV production may not be the best fit for perfectionists who can’t recognize ‘good enough’ and move on. Live TV has no patience, no second chances and can never be late. Every live shot is a first impression.
TAG Video Systems takes advantage of over 70,000 globally deployed probing points to give users the ability to dive deep into streaming content monitoring. The company anticipates more than 100,000 probing point deployments by the end of 2021.
More than 52% of survey participants report at least three-second latency delays or more in their live streaming broadcasts.
Practically all communication, including broadcasting, relies totally on electromagnetic waves that may be radiated far and wide from transmitters or guided along wires, waveguides or optical fibers.
