Did you miss these two important articles from The Broadcast Bridge? The first of two articles presents a white paper examining how software-centric T&M can help keep test equipment up-to-date on the latest standards and technologies. The second article reviews how 1-inch lens technology is overtaking the global pro camcorder market.
Benefits of Software-Based Content Monitoring stems in a requirement to constantly update the testing of new decoders, and transmission equipment. Software-centric monitoring systems can be updated with suitable software plug-ins. With the ever-growing power of CPUs in physical server platforms or in cloud deployments, there is no need for the costly deployment of special purpose, proprietary hardware to handle advanced encoding formats. Also, custom monitoring functions specific only to a single service provider can be easily accommodated with custom plug-ins.

The global pro camcorder market is currently undergoing the largest shift in dynamic since the introduction of the large sensor product in 2010. The 1-inch sensor segment is gathering significant momentum in the global pro camcorder market. These relatively low-cost camcorders have been able to satisfy two crucial trends, the desire for 4K acquisition and demand for bigger sensors in fixed lens camcorders. The technology should account for 27% of worldwide sales in 2017.
