Internet delivery is playing an influential role in delivering programs. For viewers to have the best quality of experience, engineers and technologists must expand their understanding to appreciate the intricacies of computer networks & internet delivery.
Saving dollars is one of the reasons broadcasters are moving to IP. Network speeds have now reached a level where real-time video and audio distribution is a realistic option.
Taking this technology to another level, Rohde and Schwarz demonstrate in this eBook how to reduce costs even further and provide contribution and distribution over the internet.
As the television business has become more global, and evolving consumer devices spawn the need for ever more formats, there has been an explosion of the number of versions that are needed for an item of content.

The Interoperable Media Format (IMF) has been developed as the solution to the sensible processing of motion pictures and episodic shows. In the linked e-book, Rohde & Schwarz explain IMF and introduce Clipster as a platform for IMF workflows.
