Working at the limits of broadcast technology, news providers are constantly stretching systems to deliver their story first. Discover how the winners operate and quickly master the technology they value.
Major advances in seemingly unrelated industries such as Deep Learning and High Performance Computing are empowering broadcasters to deliver greater efficiencies and improved performance. IT has perfected the art of optimizing costs against resource through scalability and flexibility. And broadcasters can capitalize on these wins.
Live broadcasts are seen as nirvana in terms of attracting an audience. Presenting a live event, especially sports, in real-time and high quality, draws audiences like no other content.

Rather, author and technology consultant, Tony Orme has created a reference guide filled with the precise kind of information about IP systems media engineers wished they had, but mostly do not.
In this series of articles, we will explain broadcasting for IT engineers. Television is an illusion, there are no moving pictures and todays broadcast formats are heavily dependent on decisions engineers made in the 1930’s and 1940’s, and in this article, we look at camera lenses, why, and how we use them.
