Building optimized systems that scale to meet peak demand delivers broadcast facilities that are orders of magnitude more efficient than their static predecessors. In part 2 of this series, we investigate how this can be achieved.
For many years broadcasters have been working with static systems that are difficult to change and upgrade. This two part series explores the unfolding of a more elastic future based on COTS hardware and flexible licensing.
On the internet, congestion and latency is added at the points at which carriers connect to each other. Understanding this will help you design a better quality video service, says Bernhard Pusch, Head of Global Internet Strategy at Telstra Corporation.
One of the earliest and most widespread applications of synchronizing was in television.
In Part 1, we looked at how the internet operates and the components that make it so effective. In this article, we consider the broadcast applications available and what it means to “connect to the internet”.
IP is empowering broadcasters the world over to improve flexibility, scalability and resilience. We often describe the internet in “fluffy cloud” terms, but to truly leverage its capabilities, broadcasters must now dig into the detail of its operation.
In the beginning, there was television. And whenever people tried to make television programmes effective video signal monitoring was an essential pre-requisite.
